Crash Bandicoot is making his way back into our lives for the PS4 and Xbox One in October after a decade. Yes, it’s been ten years since we’ve seen a new Crash bandicoot game. We’re finally going to see our favorite crate-smashing bandicoot jumping his way back into our hearts, but only for PlayStation and Xbox One players.
Nintendo Switch players felt a little left out, not knowing whether they were going to be able to enjoy another addition to a series that involved everyone’s favorite platforming bandicoot. Not only that, the developers of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Toys For Bob, have confirmed Dingodile will not only be back, but he’ll be a playable character. It looks like Dingodile will have his own story in his own alternative timeline, similar to Cortex, who is also confirmed to be playable.
Toys For Bob has also confirmed there will be earnable skins in the game. There’s nothing any gamer loves more than having earnable skins. It’s like every game has to have skins available for players to feel like they’re achieving something in the game. Having skins available to earn funnels players into a repetitive blackhole of replaying games, but that’s the whole point, right?
Since there’s going to be an aspect of time travel, which is evident as “time” is in the title itself, there’s going to be an “N. Verted Mode.” This mode allows players to players to shift into a completely different dimension with all types of new features that make this title interesting.
Crash Bandicoot: It’s About Time follows directly after 1998’s Crash Bandicoot: Warped. Both games have time travel elements, and It’s About Time is going to showcase that with new masks to complement a time-traveling story. Toys For Bob can build on any time travel elements and use today’s modern technology to create levels based on the use of time-traveling features.
Toys For Bon is really bringing us a very colorful version of an already beautifully designed adventure-platforming series. However, it looked like Nintendo Switch players were going to be left out of the loop.
Fortunately for Nintendo Switch players, the official website’s source code found a mention of the “Nintendo Switch.” There is no official word yet, but it’s looking good for Nintendo Switch players who already have access to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Only Time will tell if there will be a Nintendo Switch port, so for now, Switch fans of the Crash Bandicoot series will have to continue holding their breaths.
