The video includes all the official artwork: Figure, Illustration, and Screen Shots as well as Gameplay from Windham.

The pertinent details:

Crash will be available at launch only in PS3 and PS4 Starter Packs...special Starter Packs that is...you will need to shell out $99.99 to pick one up. Contrary to what many source are saying, Crash looks to be headed for stand alone release at a later date...hence why he is playable on Xbox and Wii U as well. Imo, for any non-super fan and player on Xbox/Nintendo sides of the fence, the Dark Starter Pack stands as a better value.

I've also made a few polls:

Santa Monica, Calif. - June 13, 2016 - Celebrating his 20-year anniversary,
Crash Bandicoot returns in 2016 as Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), features the pop-culture videogame icon as a guest star in Skylanders® Imaginators. Revealed during the Sony Interactive Entertainment America LLC., (SIEA) E3 Press Conference, Crash Bandicoot maintains his unique and quirky personality both as a fully playable Skylander Sensei character and brand new toy in Skylanders Imaginators.

At the press conference, it was also announced that Activision is bringing back Crash Bandicoot in fully remastered versions of the first three Crash games -- Crash Bandicoot®; Crash Bandicoot® 2: Cortex Strikes Back; and Crash Bandicoot®: Warped for PlayStation®4 -- planned for a 2017 release.

"For years, we've been asked when is Crash returning, and today that question has been answered. Activision is proud to celebrate the iconic character's 20-year anniversary by bringing him back in ways that will appeal to hardcore fans as well as introduce him to a new generation of gamers," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. "We can't wait for gamers to see Crash bring his unique style and quirky personality to the epic battle against Kaos in Skylanders Imaginators. And next year, we'll expand on the Crash experience for players with remastered versions of three classic games."

Activision is paying homage to the beloved '90s videogame star in fun new ways with Skylanders Imaginators. No Crash game would be complete without the ability to jump on TNT Crates to blow them up or collect the Bazooka Crate to get a rocket launcher. From his edginess to his trademark wackiness, Crash is featured with a full move set and upgrade path based around his signature spin attack, as well as callbacks to his beloved past, including moves that incorporate exploding crates with 3-2-1 countdowns, wumpa fruit, jetpack attack from high in the air and more.

Crash in Skylanders Imaginators will merge elements fans have come to know and love with Skylanders Imaginators' newest class of characters: Senseis. In Skylanders Imaginators, every Sensei has a devastating Sky-Chi attack -- their most powerful move. Crash's Sky-Chi attack is the ability to use a yo-yo to yank his enemies into a spin attack!

Famed voice actor Jess Harnell reprises his role as Crash, further ensuring Skylanders Imaginators stays true to the Crash Bandicoot that fans have come to know and love. And that's just beginning of the attention to detail in Skylanders Imaginators!

Skylanders® Imaginators empowers fans to unleash their imaginations by giving them the freedom to create their own Skylander. Portal Masters will enjoy the immense possibilities available in the game -- including appearance, powers, abilities, names, catchphrases, musical themes and much more -- to create the wildest Skylanders imaginable.

With the evil Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using an unstoppable army of Doomlanders, it's up to Portal Masters everywhere to use the power of imagination to create their own Skylanders - known as Imaginators - in order to defeat Kaos. Fighting alongside the Imaginators are the Senseis, powerful mystic warriors who are masters of ancient battle techniques.

In Skylanders Imaginators, a wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He comes to announce the once in two decades Synchronization Celebration. It is the time when all of the worlds align perfectly. They are having a huge celebration event in the Wumpa Islands and want to invite the Skylanders. But with Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using his army of Doomlanders, the Skylanders must focus on stopping his evil plans. Never one to shy away from danger, the legendary marsupial Crash Bandicoot travels through the wormhole to join the Skylanders in the ultimate battle against Kaos!
