6th Logo (Guitar Hero Series Variant [Wii only])
[Untitled]<embed allowfullscreen="true" height="187" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="227" wmode="transparent"/>

Logo: We see an animated guy sitting on a chair and getting a tattoo. He has three contacts with the machine, and the pain keeps getting worse, making the guy suffer more and show disturbing views. Then we see the tattoo of Vicarious Visions logo is done on the back. The tattoo artist forgets a part of the tattoo and adds on an "inc." design.

FX/SFX: The tattoo drawing. The style is very reminiscent of John K's work.

Music/Sounds: Rock music in the background while loud buzzing is heard. When "inc." is burned, the painful screaming is heard.

8th Logo: (Crash: N. Sane Trilogy variant)
(June 30, 2017)

Logo: The current Vicarious Visions logo is seen against a machinery background. Dr. Neo Cortex, continuing his narration over the logos, says "Developed by Vicarious Visions!". The dial on the background "turns on" and the logo glows as machine starting up noises are heard. We zoom back to reveal the logo has been on something resembling a giant metallic wood chipper attached to a conveyor belt. In the background are some boxes which resemble the ones in the original Crash Bandicoot PS1 games. Crash Bandicoot as he looked in the PS1 games pops up and waves to us. Neo Cortex continues "It's Crash Bandicoot!". PS1 Crash approaches the machine with an armful of Wumpa fruits also in PS1, but trips over a box and throws them in the machine along with a few falling boxes. The objects come out looking like they do in N. Sane proper. PS1 Crash notices this, dives into the machine, and comes out on the belt in a posing pose looking like how he does in N Sane proper. He gives a click-click sign to the audience and ultimately rolls off the belt. After getting up he spin-attacks off, revealing the title screen.

FX/SFX: Amazing graphics, which manage to make the PS1 Crash look equally as well animated.

Music/Sounds: Cortex's lines, the opening theme, all the machine and Crash action sounds and an audience gasping as modern Crash comes out/

Availability: Seen on Crash N. Sane Trilogy.

Editor's Note: None.
