Japanese fans of Crash Bandicoot are probably very familiar with the franchise’s history of hilarious live-action trailers. It should come as no surprise then that another ad of this kind is making the rounds for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
There are two different versions of the trailer; one runs just over 85 seconds in length. Meanwhile, the longer version last nearly three minutes long. Both start with a family of three happily eating apples, before Crash himself crashes the party. Partway through the trailers, everyone breaks out into a choreographed dance number. It’s quite the scene. Check out both trailers in the videos linked below.
The trailer is titled “Crash Bannjikyuusu.” According to Gematsu, “Bannjikyuusu” translates to “end of the line” or “it’s all over.” Either way, the title is a reference to the franchise’s Japanese theme song. The Crash Bandicoot Fandom page notes that Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back featured button inputs that allowed players to watch a secret music video for the theme. Check it out in the video below, courtesy of Spazbo4 on YouTube:
Activision and developer Toys For Bob announced Crash Bandicoot 4 in June, following months of rumors and speculation. Since then, plenty of the new title has been shown off. Most recently, the developers unveiled Flashback Levels and gameplay for Tawna.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time hits stores for the PS4 and Xbox One next month on October 2nd. Those who preorder digital versions of the title will receive access to a demo, which goes live on September 16th.
