The tweet doesn’t reveal much, but instead alludes to a larger reveal coming on June 22, 4pm BST. It includes a short clip of Crash playing on a PlayStation 4, before a character in the game cracks through the screen, seemingly opening an unknown dimension.
The tweet also promises that the reveal will better than the leaks: “Official reveal > leaks, promise”. It’s About Time first leaked last week, when Gematsu noticed that a new Crash game had been rated for the PS4 and Xbox One in Taiwan.
It’s About Time will be the fourth main game in its long franchise, which includes a ton of remasters and kart racers, and even a mobile game. The last main entry in the franchise was 1998’s Crash Bandicoot: Warped. The main trilogy has since been remade, dubbed the N. Sane Trilogy in 2017.
The game’s synopsis as of now reads: “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.”
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has a current release date of October 9 according to the leaks. More will be revealed soon.
