Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time brought the classic franchise into the modern era, but now it's getting even modern-er. Activision and Toys For Bob announced that it's expanding to more platforms soon, with a PC version to follow sometime later.

According to the announcement, Crash 4 will hit PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on March 12. The announcement also says a PC release via Battlenet is coming later this year. According to Activision's press release, Crash 4 will be $60 USD on PS5/Xbox Series X|S, but only $40 USD on Switch and PC.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions will feature 4K and 60 FPS play and faster load times, and those who already own the PS4 or Xbox One versions will be able to upgrade to the new generation (within the same console family) and transfer their save data at no cost. Xbox Series X|S will upgrade automatically with the Smart Delivery feature, and PS5 owners will be able to access some of the console's special features like adaptive triggers on the DualSense and detailed activity cards.

Crash 4 revived the franchise, but only released on PS4 and Xbox One at launch in October. That was just a month before the new generation of consoles launched, though the new Switch port also means you can take your Crash on the go. This follows the Crash N. Sane Trilogy which was also headed up by Toys For Bob, and the upcoming mobile runner Crash: On The Run.

"Even more so than playing the N.Sane Trilogy, which literally remade the original Crash games from my youth, playing Crash 4 felt like getting back in touch with the series," Mike Epstein wrote in GameSpot's Crash 4 review. "It's an injection of new ideas into now-classic gameplay that surprises and delights, even as it feels like a homecoming. Truly, games like this are why we come running back to long-dormant franchises with open arms."
