On the latest episode of Playstation Underground developers Toys For Bob showed off some new gameplay for the upcoming Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time including the sort-of return of a fan favorite character, Tawna.
At first glance she looks a lot different than she normally does and with good reason; she is from a different dimension. This version of Tawna is an adventurer with a few tricks contrary to the typical run and gun nature of Crash.
While we’re super excited about Tawna’s cool new look and the pivotal role that she plays in the story, we’ve also designed an awesome new playstyle and move set for her. Each of the three new playable characters in Crash 4 has a unique way to move about and interact with the world. Dingodile uses his vacuum to give himself an extra floaty jump, Neo Cortex has a speedy forward dash move, and Tawna is no exception.
Equipped with a versatile hook-shot ability that allows her to quickly traverse levels and attack enemies and break crates from afar, Tawna feels as powerful and exciting as she looks. She also has a devastating ground-pound attack, spin kicks, and can reach new heights with her acrobatic wall jump. Playing as Tawna feels fast, fluid, and fresh, while still retaining the precision and intensity that makes Crash Bandicoot such a unique platforming experience.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be available on PS4 and Xbox One on October 2nd. Those who pre-order soon will get access to a demo on September 16th.
