A new sequel from the developer Toys for Bob continues where the trilogy last left off.
Crash Bandicoot is returning in a game that has been a true successor to his original trilogy, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, which is coming to PS4 October 2nd.
Reborn & Redrawn
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is going to keep the core of what the Crash game’s are all about which is, an intense and zany 3D platforming game defined by a certain marsupial’s brash attitude.
It has begun with the development team dusting off the old consoles so they can play the original Crash Bandicoot classics, while comparing them to the recent remasters, interacting with the hardcore fans in the studio, and while gaining insight from Crash community.
While keeping the nostalgic feeling, Toys for Bob, is tailoring the game for the fans from the past, present, and the new fans alike with a re-imagined and updated art style, new gameplay mechanics, and the ability to switch from modern and retro modes.
Toys for Bob is visually introducing a fresh new take on the game, his friends, enemies, and the landscapes around them with a new art style, all while staying true to the franchise’s crazy spirit. So players can expect to see new worlds, lush vista, and a variety of enemies and hazards in a style and visual fit for the modern gaming experience.
Players can also expect to see larger landscapes as well. The environments are alive with a wonky sense of motion and energy everywhere you look. With vibrancy on display, you can expect a whole new set of platforming tricks like running on walls, grinding rails, and rope swinging to help players visit every nook, cranny, and secret spots.
Keep your head in the game
Crash and Coco is still jumping, spinning, and wumping around as they’re known for, but don’t think for a single minute that all they’ve done for the past two decades is sit around with nary a new trick up their “sleeves”.
New to the game are the Quantum Masks; which are 4 powerful guardians of space and time that give the heroes the power to bend the rules of reality and defeat dangerous obstacles in exciting new ways.
Out of the four masks, two are fully introduced within the release trailer. But, players may remember one of them from PlayStation’s “It’s Time to Play” video from November 2019.
Players, do you remember the mysterious mask above Coco during the Kart racing scene? If not, it was Kupuna-Wa aka the Time Mask that slows down time to allow even more precise movements. The other featured mask in the launch trailer is Ika Ika, the Gravity Mask, which lets Crash and Coco platform upside down despite the regular laws of physics.
The Developer, Toys for Bob is set to put those and two new additional floating masks along the course of dozen of levels. This will result in a variety of new powers and abilities for Crash, which’ll allow for a wider variety of challenges and difficulties as the game progresses.
Once you purchase the game digitally on the PlayStation Store, it will grant you the “Totally Tubular” skins (available at launch). Which will put Crash and Coco into some outfits that’ll show off their radical roots.
The game will be available on October 2, 2020 for the retail price of $59.99.
