Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time Flashback Tapes revealed
Developer Toys for Bob revealed during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live event that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will have something called Flashback Tapes that will reveal more about Crash’s relationship with Neo Cortex prior to the events of the first game.
These Flashback Tapes will be collectible items that players can find throughout the main game by reaching them without dying. However, instead of just providing some audio logs, these Flashback Tapes actually unlock these puzzle rooms.
These Flashback Tapes will show a point in time when Cortex was excited about Crash being on his team, since Crash was actually created by Cortex, the developer stated.
The reveal of the Flashback Tapes was preceded by a goofy sketch of the lovable marsupial in a mask, waiting for everyone to show up at Gamescom. Poor guy.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time launches on October 2nd for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
