New Crash Bandicoot Apparel Merchandise ft. Jinx coming April/May 2019 (Including Crash Team Racing Goodies, via Raru)

It looks like summer is just about to get even more exciting than ever for the upcoming release of Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, because it has been revealed via a South African retailer named “Raru” that we’re getting 6 different apparel items, 4 shirts and 2 hoodies (including one from Jinx, targeting kids). As stated in the title, these will be coming between April – May 2019 (specifically, April 12, 26, and May 17) and come in different sizes.

The first one is from Jinx, dubbed “Youth Hoodie” and maybe also the “Aku Aku Crash Youth Tee“, joins a new clothes merchandising company that joins the list of many with Activision to create and sell Crash Bandicoot merchandise and apparel in select regions around the globe, their own hoodie/jacket and tee shirt/t-shirt uses the standard affair of render(s) and asset(s) that we’ve seen before in a good deal of merchandise, what is interesting is that we haven’t been seeing that many items specifically aimed at the demographic of kids, from X-Small (7-8 years), Small (9-10 years), Medium (11-12 years) and finally, Large (13-14 years) respectively.

My own personal gut tells me that this will make it into the North American retailers that usually sells J!NX apparel and it might be at Walmart, GameStop/EB Games, Hot Topic, Spencers, BoxLunch, Urban Outfitters and H&M. It is probably a wild guess but it is possible that this is the case. It will arrive according to the retailer on April 12, 2019 for the hoodie and April 26, 2019 for the tee shirt.

The other set of apparel haven’t been identified from which clothes merchandising company, but they feature new illustrations and assets, namely the “N. Sanity Beach Hoodie“, “Octane Tee“, and “Navy Tee” ones (Except for “High Four Tee).

N. Sanity Beach Hoodie” features some nice new illustrations alluding to the collectibles like the Wumpa Fruit and abilities in Crash Team Racing, like the Bowling Bombs, Breakers, etc. “Octane Tee” features an all-new illustration of Crash Bandicoot doing the double thumbs up pose with Nitro exhausts firing behind his back and a checkered flag with a scroll reading “Crash Bandicoot, est. 1996”.

And finally, “Navy Tee” features a trace of the original Crash Bandicoot crazy face head with the Lithograph font used just like in the original Warped and Spyro the Dragon game(s), the text reads as the following “Crash Bandicoot, Wumpa Islands, 1996”. These will be all coming on May 17, 2019.

You can have a look at each of these individually below for a more in-depth analysis.
