It’s been quite a few years since a new Crash Bandi­coot from the main series was released. We’ve seen remas­ters of the three orig­i­nal titles and some rac­ing spin-offs, but only rumors of an upcom­ing addi­tion to the num­bered entries. That wait is final­ly over. 

Crash Bandi­coot 4: It’s About Time, a “true sequel” Activi­sion says, fol­lows right where Crash Bandi­coot: Warped left off. Now, Dr. N. Tropy, Neo Cor­tex and Uka Uka have escaped their pen­i­ten­tiary with plans to take over the world (as usu­al). Of course, you’ll step in to stop them, with four spe­cial Quan­tum Masks to “bend the rules of real­i­ty” in your favor. This includes the Time Mask (slows time down) and the Grav­i­ty Mask (lets you jump upside down).

While no indi­ca­tion was giv­en the game was com­ing to PC and the Nin­ten­do Switch, it might be announced on a lat­er date. Toys For Bob, the same devel­op­ment team that brought us the Spy­ro Reignit­ed Tril­o­gy, is cur­rent­ly work­ing on Crash Bandi­coot 4. The game will use the same basic plat­form­ing game­play of the orig­i­nal titles, with addi­tions like wall-run­ning and rail grind­ing. It will also fea­ture a com­plete over­hauled art style, and you’ll be able to play as Neo Cor­tex, Crash or Coco.

Crash Bandi­coot 4: It’s About Time, is releas­ing on Octo­ber 2nd, retail­ing at $60 and is avail­able for pre-order now. You can see the trail­er below:
