‘Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’ is now official. Activision and Toys for Bob have presented the first trailer for the return of the marsupial.
The video game will arrive this coming October 2 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. After the success of the remake of their trilogy, the fourth numbered episode is official and will come out this year 2020 with Crash and Coco as the main selectable characters.
‘Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’ First Details
As in the classic works, a three-dimensional platform adventure awaits us with linear levels full of obstacles, collectibles and many jumps. All this seasoned by the characteristic difficulty of the works that they already signed in their day in Naughty Dog.
Judging by what we have seen, we will have more significant stages with a more ambitious design, according to current times. The renewed artistic section also stands out, which is slightly different from what we enjoyed three years ago.
Toyd for Bob is the studio responsible for the project. It is an Activision affiliate company of about 120 employees known for being in charge of some of the most famous works of Skylanders as well as the port of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on Nintendo Switch. They also work on Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
After the trailer presentation, Geoff Keighley has welcomed Paul Yan from Toyd for Bob. The creative has reflected on how they have approached the project.
Unlike other modern series of the saga, the studio has decided to start from the Naughty Dog classics and continue with the legacy of those games. For this reason, the playable style is respected. Although, they have added important novelties.
As the title indicates, timing will be crucial. New powers include the ability to slow down time or modify gravity to walk the walls.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s Success Justifies Its Return
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is an international success. Until the last year 2019, the title had already exceeded 10 million units sold worldwide in its versions of Ps4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch; It thus exceeds the sales of the original PlayStation game.
After the success of Crash Bandicoot. N Sane Trilogy, which was exclusive during its first year on PS4 (later it was released on Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch) and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, it is time for the marsupial to come back in the style of the platforms in three dimensions. This time is for PS4 and Xbox One.
To say that it was a “success” is to speak of facts. After years in the shadows, Crash Team Racing returned in 2017 with a remake trilogy by Vicarious Visions that has already sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Those are all the reason to trust more to this new series.
Last week, new official merchandise for the saga had already been leaked. Although, neither Activision nor PlayStation had confirmed on it.
