If you can remember back that far, Crash has just banished pesky trio Neo Cortex, Dr N. Tropy (still the best name in video games, don’t @ us) and Uka Uka to a faraway planet. Obviously, they’ve escaped.
It’s About Time is a collaboration between Activistion, Blizzard Inc. and developer Toys for Bob, the latter who so successfully ported the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy to the Switch in 2018. As the title suggest, there’s a big concentration on bending the rules of time such as in the new Quantum Masks power up.
Crash will be able to do new skills like wall run and rail grind, mainstays of modern platformers that were beyond the poor fella back in the 90s. If you want to check out a gameplay video, Activision let musician Quavo be the first to play and preview the new game on his Instagram, because the internet.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is out on 2 October for PS4 and Xbox One for £59.99/$59.99
