This fall, Crash Bandicoot is starring in a brand new game and it’s about time! No seriously it is! For the first time in more than 10 years, a brand-new original entry in the Crash Bandicoot series is coming entitled Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
Launching October 2, 2020 for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this sequel to the Crash trilogy looks like it will have all the charm and personality that fans will love. Let’s take a look at the details of everything that was announced today.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Details
Crash is back in an all-new adventure
In the past few years, we’ve seen a few remakes of classic games starring our favourite marsupial: Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Both games introduced Crash to a whole new generation of gamers, while staying true to its platforming roots for long-time fans. As happy as I was to play those games, I along with many other gamers wanted more, and today we got our prayers answered.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a brand-new, original entry in the Crash series. It takes place after Crash Bandicoot: Warped. And, picks up after Neo Cortex, Dr. N. Tropy and Uka Uka were last stranded on a distant planet.
After decades of trying to escape, the trio finally make their escape and in the process make hole in the fabric of space-time. The only thing that stands in their way of total domination over the multiverse are two marsupials from N. Sanity Island, Crash and his sister Coco.
Modern take on a classic game
We learned today that Toys for Bob made Crash Bandicoot 4 with the original trilogy in mind. What that means is, we still get the same great precision gameplay that made the Crash games some of the best action platformers. And, we also get upgraded visuals, new gameplay mechanics and Modern and Retro modes to master.
Furthermore, Toys for Bob is introducing a fresh visual direction for the game while maintaining the same spirit of the franchise that we all know and love. You can see this in the trailer released today that contains new worlds, and a variety of new enemies and hazards.
As if that wasn’t enough, Toys for Bob are adding new playable characters, including Neo Cortex, four new powerful Quantum Masks and advanced platforming techniques including wall running and rail grinding.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming this fall
Crash’s all-new adventure, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, launches October 2, 2020 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Just from what I’ve seen today, I can hardly wait to get my hands on the game.
