Sigh, they grow up so quickly… Yes, that little Aussie box battler Crash Bandicoot is celebrating his 25th this year.

It was September of 1996 when developer Naughty Dog – yes, those who later gave us the Uncharted and The Last of Us games – first unleashed the little guy on the OG PlayStation.

Developers Toys for Bob have since taken over custody of Crash, and their two studio bigwigs reminisce a little in the video below.

Hmm, we wonder what’s next for Crash…?
