Crash 4 looks like the most promising sequel in 20 years.

It has been confirmed that Crash 4: It's About Time will hit our shelves in October 2020. The PlayStation classic has returned to our consoles with great success in recent years which led to much speculation that a new game would be added to the series.

The N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled were both hugely popular remasters, but it has been over a decade since a brand new title was released. That makes now the perfect time to carry on the recent success of the series with fans old and new.

Crash 4 looks set to return to the style that we all love from the early games in the series, but with plenty of new features and upgrades. While we still have three months until It's About Time arrives, plenty of details have already been confirmed. Here are a handful of reasons to be excited about Crash 4.

10. Retro Mode

One of Crash 4's most exciting new features is "retro mode".

The main story mode has changed in a number of ways to bring the series in line with modern-day platform titles. Lives have been removed meaning you won't face the dreaded game over screen.

However, for those that want to play Crash as it was in 1996 retro mode will allow you to play with lives, Wumpa Fruit and much more still included.

Which ever mode you play, each have their own specific rewards such as gems to earn, meaning to collect everything on offer you will need to play both.

Retro mode allows the developers to cater for all types of players. For new fans of the series who are used to the current platformers, it will allow them to enjoy Crash in a 2020 setting.

For those, like myself, who were lucky enough to play through the early games in the series when they were first released retro mode keeps Crash exactly as it used to be.
