A possible late port could be in the cards.
Later this year, we’ll get the first original adventure in the Crash Bandicoot series in many years with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. The platformer seems to be hitting all the right notes with tons of new levels and playable characters and seemingly no microtransactions (at least at launch). When it was unveiled, there was much rejoicing, but one thing did raise eyebrows with the lack of a Switch version. The series seems to have done well on the platform with the late release of N.Sane Trilogy and then Crash Team Racing releasing day and date on Switch alongside other versions. Well, it seems the game’s website could point to Crash 4 still coming to the Switch.
As you can see from Twitter user @SunwerPrower, they did some digging on the game’s website to see that within the code there is mention of a Switch version. Now, of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean anything, since it’s entirely possible this is just leftover code, but there is something of a precedent for companies to release games 6 months to a year later on Switch, and Activision has said they are always ‘evaluating’ for more platforms. So, don’t be too surprised if a Switch release is in the cards at some point.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is set to release October 2nd for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Dentro de la página de Crash Bandicoot 4, se encuentra un pequeño vestigio de Switch. Más en concreto se trata de un script que incluye el elemento "Nintendo Switch". Éste componente es quien nutre el menú de opciones de plataformas. Pueden comprobarlo ustedes mismos. pic.twitter.com/oTMtBno1ZV
