The next Crash game has all but been confirmed thanks to a listing on the Taiwanese rating board. The site has listings for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on both PS4 and Xbox One, and there is cover art to boot. The leak was spotted Gematsu who also put together the following image from the rating board source.
The description of Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time says:
Crash is relaxing and exploring his island in his time, 1998, when he finds a mysterious mask hidden away in a cave, Lani-Loli. The mask is one of the Quantum Masks and apparently knows Aku-Aku, Crash’s mask friend! With the Quantum Masks returning and a Quantum Rift appearing near our heroes, they decide to bravely head through to different times and dimensions to stop whoever is responsible.
Toys For Bob is developing this new game and that studio most recently developed the Spyro Re-Ignited Trilogy. It does not look like Vicarious Visions, which developed Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is involved with this new Crash Bandicoot game. It may be worth picking up the trilogy before jumping into Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. In our review for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Jim wrote:
As far as remakes go, you can’t get any better than this. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is exactly how fans envisioned it – an unadulterated celebration of a PlayStation pioneer. With such a weight on their shoulders, Vicarious Visions have pulled it off with such diligence, infused with a streak of their own creativity. Then there’s Naughty Dog original efforts, of course. Even those only acquainted with Uncharted and The Last of Us can appreciate how the studio first made its name, and the journey from Crash Bandicoot to Warped is one of continued innovation. Some two decades later, it’s great to see that some things never change.
