Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a mainline entry and a direct sequel to 1998’s Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. But, for those who haven’t played the previous games, or have forgotten what the story was about, there’s nothing to worry about.
Developer Toys For Bob’s Co-Studio Head, Paul Yan, has confirmed that new players can play the game at ease. The game is full of easter eggs and smart references that might puzzle newer players, but those aren’t an important part of the story.
“A really important thing is that this is designed both for people who know and experienced and have nostalgia for the previous games but also for a new audience,” Yan said in an interview with Press-Start. “So there may be a lot of Easter eggs or nods and winks to the past that may gloss over new players heads, but it’s not critical information that they would need to experience its adventure from start to finish.”
This makes me comfortable since I haven’t played any of the other Crash Bandicoot games. The decision is something like what Santa Monica Studio did for their recent God of War. Although it’s a continuation, newer players can easily get into the game and enjoy the story, without having to worry about what happened in the past games.
