Flashback Tapes and N. Verted Mode
Hungry for the toughest platforming challenges you can get your hands on? Scattered throughout the game, Flashback Tapes lie along various main path levels. However, you can only collect them if you can reach their location without dying. These tapes unlock Flashback levels that take Crash and Coco back in time to the ‘90s to encounter Neo Cortex’s most challenging crate puzzles.
And it gets crazier. Toys for Bob teamed up with Beenox to develop the new N. Verted mode unlocked after beating the final level in the 4th dimension. N. Verted levels mark a creative and challenging twist on the traditional mirror mode, featuring new art styles like an old timey film reel or black and white levels that Crash coats with color after every spin. These aren’t always just visual changes, either, sometimes they affect the way you replay levels in new and interesting ways.
Do it All in Style with Earnable Skins
If you’re going to restore order to the multiverse, you might as well look good while doing it. Luckily, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is packed with wacky skins to match every mood and occasion. Skins are earned by collecting gems within each level, with each level sporting its own unique skin. Players can find gems on a normal playthrough and collect additional gems when playing in N. Verted mode. Lookin’ good, marsupial.
Compete Against Friends in Bandicoot Battle
Prove your spot as top marsupial in Bandicoot Battle, a local competitive mode where two to four players can compete head to head. See who’s the fastest as you race to the finish line in Checkpoint Races or get smashing and try for the highest score in Crate Combo. If you prefer to cooperate, load up Pass N. Play and take turns progressing through levels in normal or N. Verted mode. All competitive and cooperative modes only require a single controller, so you can pass, play, and easily join in on Crash’s misadventures.
