The Crash Bandicoot series has changed hands more than Blockbuster DVD, and with Radical Entertainment now heading up development they're reinventing the orange critter for his current-gen debut.

Crash of the Titans will appear on Wii, PS2, DS, PSP and 360, and will follow an action-orientated theme in which he has the power to "hijack" the minds of others.

Crash himself has learned a few new fighting moves too, now able to string together a selection of punches and kicks into a ninja combo for the first time in the series.

Even better, a second player can join in at any point in the game, taking control of Carbon Crash in co-operation with the first player. Neat.

Check out all the screens below - there are PS2, Wii and DS captures there, all marked up so you can tell them apart.

Crash of the Titans is pencilled in for an Autumn release.
