    Crash 4 is officially real. Following the previous ratings board leak, Activision has formally announced Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, which is headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year. The game is being developed as "a true sequel" to the original trilogy, even cheekily bringing attention to the fact that it's ignoring the other games that came between Crash 3 and this new title. There are also two new masks that are being introduced in Crash 4--Eka-Eka and Kipuna-Wa, who can control gravity and time, respectively, in certain levels. Developer Toys for Bob is also including two game modes, modern, and retro, where players can either try to collect all the Wumpa fruit that they can within each level and earn extra lives, or they can restart from checkpoints without penalty, and instead focus on trying to get the fruit to unlock rewards. Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is due out on October 2nd.

    Oh man, it's been eons since I last heard that song. Solid trailer and the gameplay is looking good, no idea why they're holding out on a PC release though.

    Well, so far it looks good.

    Unfortunately I don't have a PS4.

    I'm very excited for this. I wonder how much it'll be. They could go with the $40ish price tag that it used for the others, but this is a brand new experience so they could probably justify charging more.

    Looks like something the Switch could handle.

    Interesting. I assume this is because the N. Sane trilogy was really well received. Am curious to see how it turns out, going back to a classic series like this.

    Also gives me slight hopes that a new Spyro title is also in the works in a similar vein, a modern sequel to the original trilogy is something I'd love to see...so long as it's done well, and not like any of the other games in the series.

    Mask thing: "How many times have you beaten this clown anyway??"
    Coco: "Three"
    Mask: "Really?? Only three?? Funny, seems like more"

    Mask is throwing shade at CB Wrath of Cortex.

    WOOHOO!! This will be great, I like it already.

    I'm kinda sad they are throwing out Twinsanity, I was hoping to see a remake of that on the PC.

    *ahem*

    Our favorite bandicoot finally strikes back! Being warped from continuation, he now brings his wrath, caused by a great amount of twinsanity. Another huge adventure, which won't leave him tranced. without a shred of purple, and no titans nor mutants to accompany him. He's still n.sane enough to do this by his own spins.
    It's about time, Crash Bandicoot!

    Might wait for a Switch port. The visuals don't look overly complicated or anything (looks like something that could've been late last gen). But with Activision as the publisher who knows?

    From what I've seen, the first levels looks kinda bland to me. There were only a few levels that would make me want to buy that new Crash game. While i love the original games and really loved the trilogy, I felt it was time for crash to evolve and in a more Twinsanity way. That game felt more what would modern Crash looks like to me.
