Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Trailer
It isn’t uncommon for video game companies to release remasters as a way to test the waters. After all, a long wait between titles in an ongoing series makes it rather difficult for them to gauge the current state of the market, meaning that they need more information before committing enough resources to make a game.
Given that Activision has announced a new Crash Bandicoot title called Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, it seems safe to say that the recent remaster served exactly this role. Gameplay-wise, it seems that the new game is going to retain a lot of the basic mechanics of the preceding platformers but will also incorporate new mechanics that have risen into prominence in the time since. As for the story, well, suffice to say that there is a reason that Crash Bandicoot 4 is being called a “true sequel.”
