There’s also an official description for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time that accompanies the box art. “Crash is relaxing and exploring his island in his time, 1998, when he finds a mysterious mask hidden away in a cave, Lani-Loli”, it reads.
“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.”
Earlier this week, various publications received a mysterious jigsaw puzzle which, when assembled, reveals a new character. Other games from developer Toys For Bob have teased its previous titles in similar ways before. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy came with purple eggs in the post alongside a message reading “something’s about to hatch”. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fuelled also received something similar with members of the press being delivered a pair of fluffy orange dice teasing an upcoming reveal at the Game Awards.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time could potentially be revealed during the Developer Showcase on June 22, where a “surprise major AAA title” will be announced.
In related news, the popular action-platformer Ratchet & Clank franchise is getting a new iteration on the upcoming PlayStation 5 console. It will utilise the consoles power to instantly load new worlds and showcase the graphical power of the next-gen system.
