Activision Blizzard Studios’ animated series Skylanders Academy debuted on Netflix today, and the appearance of one guest character has caused quite a stir on the internet.
Ever since the series was announced last year, it had been expected that everyone’s favourite orange marsupial, Crash Bandicoot, would make a cameo of some kind, given his recent appearance in the latest entry in the toys-to-life video game franchise, Skylanders: Imaginators.
However, few fans were anticipating the former PlayStation mascot would have a speaking role; much less an entire episode dedicated to him. But sure enough, in the show’s eleventh episode, titled Crash Landed, Crash Bandicoot is somehow transported into their world, and the Skylanders have to help him get home by finding a dark relic.
The episode is available for viewing in its entirety on Netflix now [subscription required], while you can check out a snippet of it below. We’re not entirely sure of that Australian accent, however (but at least it’s not this).
