Crash Bandicoot’s next game takes things in a new direction. Rather than a traditional 3D Crash platformer, developer Toys for Bob’s next game in the 26-year-old franchise is a team-based four-on-four action game called Crash Team Rumble. The first trailer for the console game was revealed at The Game Awards on Thursday.
Crash Team Rumble will see players battling for Wumpa Fruit as Crash, Coco, Tawn, Dingodile, Dr. Cortex and others, jumping through colorful environments and defeating opponents. Each character appears to have their own special abilities, and players will need to avoid environmental hazards on the game’s maps.
Activision and Toys for Bob will be released Crash Team Rumble on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2023.
