Crash Bandicoot 4 Spins onto Switch, Next-Gen Consoles Soon

Crash 4 is coming to Switch, PS5, and Xbox X|S in March, with a PC version planned for later.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is heading to Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 on March 12. Crash 4 for PC is scheduled for release sometime later in 2021 via Blizzard's portal.

Crash 4 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will cost $59.99, while the Switch version will be $39.99. Existing Crash 4 owners on PS4 and Xbox One can upgrade to the PS5 and Series X|S versions for free, though if they own the disc version, they need a console with a disc drive for the update. 

Next-gen updates include 4K and 60fps support on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Xbox Series S will upscale Crash 4 to 4K, though as with other games, it won't support 60fps.

The PC version will be a bit different. 4K support depends on a rig's specs, of course, and the frame rate is capped at 60fps if using the recommended settings. It's uncapped if not, but whatever the choice, Crash 4 on PC has to be played with an internet connection.

We called Crash 4 a beautiful, if sometimes frustrating, step in the right direction for the series that skillfully combines retro gameplay with modern charm.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
