Crash Bandicoot 4 is a 3D platformer using mechanics originally from the PS1 Crash trilogy. Among these include smashing boxes for fruit and stages which use a "front-view" camera. The upcoming title will also feature both Coco - Crash's girlfriend - and Dr. Neo Cortex - Crash's nemesis - as playable characters.
As original series developer, Naughty Dog, has moved onto developing the Uncharted and The Last of Us series, It's About Time will be developed by Toys for Bob. This team recently developed the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy as well as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy. This will also be PlayStation's second platforming series to return, from a long hiatus, after the recently announced Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. With these promising releases coming over the next year, Sony opens up the door for longtime franchise favorites, such as Spyro the Dragon and Jak and Daxter, to return sometime in the near future.
