YouTube user Canadian Guy Eh has scrutinised the Crash Bandicoot 4 Flashback gameplay that dropped at Gamescom, offering a tantalizing glimpse into some of the cool Easter eggs that developer Toys For Bob has implemented in the upcoming platform sequel.
Crash Bandicoot 4 Flashback Gameplay
There’s a lot of little touches peppered throughout these flashback segments, with one section, which takes place in Cortex’s castle, revealing a date of January 1, 1996 – the same year that the original Crash Bandicoot was released.
Check out the footage below.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is scheduled for release on PS4 and Xbox One on October 2, and is a direct sequel to 1998’s Crash Bandicoot Warped. The game follows on from something of a Crash Bandicoot revival in recent years, thanks largely to the excellent Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy.
Naughty Dog was the original developer of the Crash Bandicoot series in its PSOne days, producing four games: Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bandicoot Warped And Crash Team Racing.
