I’m currently making my way through the entire Crash Bandicoot series for the first time despite the beloved platformer having launched back in my heyday as an 80s/90s kid. It’s been a blast. Not only did I get to enjoy the awesome remake of the original trilogy thanks to the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, I was fully prepared to tackle the recently released sequel, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, which I’m still making my way through. And as of today, more people than ever will be able to check out the newest Crash release since the game will be available on next-gen consoles and the Nintendo Switch in just a few weeks, with a PC launch expected soon after.
Press release details follow below:
