After plenty of speculation, Activision finally confirmed that it will soon be bringing Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time to Switch. Toys for Bob creative producer Lou Studdert has since offered additional insight into the new version of the game.

In terms of what to expect regarding frame rate and resolution, Studdert said:

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time appears to be more than just a simple port on Switch. Twitter user Kanozu_ put together a few comparison screenshots with the PlayStation 4 version, which show that the team did more than merely decrease the resolution.

Based on what we’ve seen from the Switch version, it looks like the models and assets have been reworked. The game now employs a slightly more cel-shaded appearance on Nintendo’s console.

After much speculation, Activision has finally announced that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming to Switch. It will launch on March 12.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time first launched last October. Despite Activision not announcing a Switch version, it was listed for Nintendo’s console in the official website’s source code. Then shortly after release, fans spotted what appeared to be an internal profile for Switch in the game’s data.

Here’s an overview of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time as well as the announcement trailer:

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has already been rumored for Switch. Before the game even released, Nintendo’s system was clearly mentioned on the official website. Talk about a Switch version is now picking up again following launch.

After digging through the .ini file for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, it’s apparently been discovered that a Switch profile is hidden within. While it’s possible that it could be leftover code from Unreal Engine 4 – which was used to develop the game – YouTuber Canadian Guy Eh points out that we can see “Copied from Falcon” multiple times in the code. Falcon was the project name for Spyro Reignited Trilogy, which is also on Switch and was made by Toys for Bob. In other words, some optimization code may have been borrowed for the base of Crash Bandicoot 4 on Switch.
