The game, which appears to be an endless runner starring Crash and his sister Coco, is developed by Activision-owned Candy Crush maker King.
According to the official blurb, it features “high-speed battle runs across Wumpa Island to save the multiverse from the evil Dr. Neo Cortex; smash crates, avoid obstacles and run into your favorite characters… Not to mention battling your favorite Crash bosses, earning rewards, base building and weapon crafting – all with a customizable Crash!”
Players can pre-register now to get an exclusive skin at launch.
Narratively, the sequel connects to the original Crash trilogy developed by Naughty Dog, its developer said, and offers “dense and focused” platforming gameplay evocative of those games.
2017’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, a remastered compilation of the first three Crash games developed by Vicarious Visions (Toys for Bob handled the Switch port), has sold over 10 million copies according to Activision.
