A pizza box could tease a Crash Bandicoot Wumpa League ad at The Game Awards

It looks like a new Crash Bandicoot game is about to be revealed at The Game Awards, as Crash Bandicoot 4: About time gets a Steam version.

Earlier this week, a selection of press and influencers received a Crash Bandicoot-themed pizza box that contained stuff like a t-shirt and charging cables, mostly harmless for the most part, as detailed by Canadian YouTuber Guy Eh (thanks GamesRadar). On the box, the Crash 4 Steam release was teased with the text “Aku Aku’s Steam-in Pizza Shack”, before outright saying that it will hit the store on October 18th. But a teaser on the side of the box potentially hints at the long-rumored Crash Bandicoot Wumpa League reveal.

If you’ve never heard of Wumpa League before, there have been rumors surrounding the game for quite a while, with concept art for the game having been shared earlier this year by Liam Robertson of DidYouKnowGaming. The reason some suspect the Wumpa League will be revealed at The Game Awards is a line of text on the side of the box that reads, “Want more?” Try our new wumpa pizza for $12.08!

This oddly specific prize obviously refers to when The Game Awards will be held, and the specific use of the word wumpa (the name of the fruit you collect in the series) is why some believe the planned reveal is for Wumpa League.

According to a separate post from Robertson last year, Wumpa League was supposed to be an online multiplayer Crash Bandicoot game that would pit two teams against each other, where you would collect wumpa fruit and play as characters from Crash 4 and others. However, when Robertson shared concept art for the game, he also noted that he thought the project needed to be restarted, so it might not be the same as he originally portrayed it. Anyway, we will discover that Geoff Keighley announces games and also distributes statue shows.
