The rumours were true: 2020 is giving us a new Crash Bandicoot game and it’s not a second too soon.
PlayStation announced Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time with a trailer today. It’s the first new sequel in the franchise since 2008, meaning it’s nothing short of WILD they’ve decided to bring it back now (and presumably about a month before the PlayStation 5 drops).
It picks up several years after where Crash Bandicoot: Warped left off. Villainous trio Neo Cortex, Dr. N Tropy and Uka Uka were stranded on a distant planet. Now, they’ve managed to escape to try and rule the multiverse, but foolishly left a giant hole in the space-time fabric behind them.
“How many times have you beaten him?” Aku Aku asks Crash and his sister Coco.
“Really? Only three? Seemed liked more.”
The updated graphics might pack a punch, but Crash Bandicoot’s gameplay looks firmly rooted in the 90s.
Crash Bandicoot 4: About Time comes out October 2, 2020. This is less of a want than a need, in that I NEED to play this game or something terrible will happen.
