The game takes place a year after the events of Crash of the Titans. The mutants who are now free from Doctor Cortex's control have spread across the Wumpa Islands and started their own societies. All is well until Cortex who is teamed up with his old colleague Doctor Nitrus Brio betray Uka Uka and use his bad mojo to power a personal digital assistant called a NV. With the NVs, Cortex plans to brainwash all the mutants and whoever uses it. Crash and Aku Aku are unaffected by the device but Coco and Crunch are transformed into a monstrous forms that seeks Crash's destruction. After saving Coco, the Bandicoots learn of Cortex's plans from his blog. They decide to make their way to the Evil Public School where Nina Cortex was placed after betraying Cortex in Crash of the Titans. Nina in return for Crash saving her science fair project, informs the heroes of Cortex's and Brio's alliance and reveals their location in the Junkyard, where Brio is recycling parts to create a new space station, the "Space Head", for Cortex and new NV devices. Crash and Aku Aku find Crunch and Brio at the Junkyard and manage to break Crunch free from the NV's control. After learning of Uka Uka's whereabouts from Brio, Crash and Aku Aku go to Mount Grimly, where Uka Uka is being drained of all his Mojo. After being freed, Uka Uka informs Crash that his voodoo bones, his source of power, have been stolen and given to six of the worst Titans on the Island, and tells them to go and retrieve the bones for him. When the bones have been gathered, Uka Uka uses his restored power to send Crash to the Space Head and Crash can enact Uka Uka's vengeance on Cortex. Crash engages in a fight against Cortex, who uses a mutation formula stolen from Brio to empower himself for the battle. Upon losing to the Bandicoot, Cortex throws a tantrum, causing the Space Head to fall towards the Earth. Cortex, having returned to normal, makes his escape from the plummeting Space Head, while Crash and Aku Aku brace themselves for a crash-landing on Wumpa Island. Crash and Aku Aku manage to survive the crash and reunite with Coco and Crunch as parts of the Space Head rain down from the sky. As the story ends, Coco tells Aku Aku that they're not going to help clean up, much to his chagrin.
