Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time was officially revealed this morning with a brief announcement trailer which included some gameplay, but it would appear that Activision and Toys for Bob released a little more gameplay footage than that as well. There is nearly three minutes of B-roll gameplay footage circulating online that shows off a little more clearly just what folks can expect from the newly announced sequel when it releases this October for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The extra footage, which you can check out below, is broadly similar to the remastered Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which basically means all the usual Crash Bandicoot bells and whistles should be in it, but everything should also just look better than it has in previous games. If you have ever played a Crash Bandicoot video game in your life, the footage should feel instantly familiar.
"Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time stands on the shoulders of the core precision gameplay we all fell in love with in the '90s,"Paul Yan, Co-Studio Head at Toys for Bob, stated as part of this morning's announcement. "This epic new adventure spans space and time, introducing new ways to platform that both long-time fans and new players alike will enjoy mastering. Get ready to fall in love with the mutant marsupials all over again!"
