Yesterday we reported on the early impressions of Crash Bandicoot 4 on Nintendo Switch, courtesy of leaked retail copies that are currently in the market. It seems that a new update has rolled out since then that also added a couple of new skins.
Crash Bandicoot 4 Nintendo Switch – Crash on the go
Crash Bandicoot 4 on Nintendo Switch runs similar to the base PS4 version – the game runs at 720p in handheld and 1080p on docked at a steady 30FPS.
While a new update just released which brings the game to version 1.1, it also added a couple of new skins to the game by the name of Bare Bones for Crash and Coco. (images are courtesy of user lightmineing on reddit.)
This is what they look like in-game.
Normally with skins in Crash Bandicoot 4, you would get a hint of how to unlock it, but the user in question just unlocked these by not even playing the game.
This could mean that these are skins exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of the game, similar to the 80’s themed costumes for Crash and Coco on the PS4.
The game is set to launch on March 12h for the Nintendo Switch, and while this early version does seem very visually polished and does run well enough, it is amazing that Toys For Bob was able to bring the Crash experience to the Nintendo Switch.
While the 30FPS limit feels slow for a game like Crash, it is on par with the base PS4 version as well.
For now, we know that a Spyro game is potentially in the works since it was also teased in the official artbook of the game, but we don’t know if or when we will see an announcement for it yet.
Crash Bandicoot 4 is getting a release on the Xbox Series X/S, PS5, on March 12th, with the PC version set to release on a later date which will be published on Blizzards own gaming client that houses Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, etc.
