If they cant have Crash Bandicoot in game then what about the wompa fruit?

9 replies 266 views Edited Sep 16, 2012

They have items for the mod nation racers game and none of them are in the game as characters. if it happens to crash bandicoot cant they do the same thing and put a wompa fruit as a power up for all players? or those boxes and cyrstals.

They wouldn't spend money on a 3rd party franchise just for an item -.-

that is crazy and unfair! so you are saying that if they even make it look different and say its crash bandicoot fruit then they have to pay money for that? what if the fruit was blue?

Of course it does, if it's part of a property someone else owns. The only way they could do this is if they just put a generic fruit in and off-the-record, "pretend" that it's Wumpa Fruit, but I doubt they'll do that. They would have to avoid calling it "Wumpa Fruit" in any code or promotional materials, or else Activision could sue them.

Just because it would be a small piece of the game, doesn't mean that Activision can't use litigation for them using property that doesn't belong to them.

No they'll either have Crash Bandicoot in the game with items, or they won't feature anything related to him at all.

i think i understand now. well would everyone be okay if they put in a generic fruit that made you have some special abilty if that is all they could do?

maybe the fruit makes you do a spin attack. you can make them pay money to do a spin attack,thats crazy. lots of video game characters do spin attacks. how about that? and they could call it whoopafruit. or it makes you body slam someone.

While they could probably get away with that (It would probably be protected under the parody parts of copyright law) I'd rather they just not include anything. That would seem like teasing us a bit.
