Crash Bandicoot is having a busy year. In addition to a new numbered sequel (Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time), the onetime PlayStation mascot is heading to Android and iOS devices later this year with Crash Bandicoot: On the Run from King, the Activision-owned company behind Candy Crush Saga.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run is, as one might expect, a runner-style game that pits Crash and Coco against Dr. Neo Cortex and his henchmen. Gameplay, which shows up about 70 seconds into the mobile game’s debut trailer, appears to involve plenty of running and platforming that’s not too dissimilar from classic Crash Bandicoot mechanics. The mobile game will rework game locations from other Crash games, such as Turtle Woods, Lost City, and Temple Ruins, as well as bosses, including Scorporilla and Nitrus Brio.

King did not announce a release date. Interested Crash fans can pre-register for the game, which will be available from Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store, at the Crash Bandicoot: On the Run website. For a more traditional Crash experience, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be released Oct. 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
