Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time will launch this October, and will follow directly from the original Naughty Dog trilogy that fans of the marsupial know and love.

This time, however, he's bringing more than a few friends along for the ride. Here's the full list of playable characters we know of so far!

Crash Bandicoot 4: Playable Characters


Despite what you may think, Crash isn't the only hero on this adventure. In fact, Coco Bandicoot is also available in any level that Crash can play.

That means, in theory, you could play the entire game as Coco, and leave the jorts wearing bandicoot on the sidelines.

That's a change from previous games in the series, with Coco often being playable in certain levels. Toys For Bob are also committed to making her a larger part of the game's narrative, too.

Each bandicoot will have access to powerful new Quantum Masks that allow the ability to invert gravity, phase-shift platforms and other elements in and out of the environment and slow down time. You'll also have skins to unlock, so you can customise Crash (and Coco, too).

There's also a fourth Quantum Mask, but the developers aren't ready to show it just yet.

That's not all, though. We'll also be playing as not one, but two of Crash's enemies.

The first, Neo Cortex, is Crash's arch-nemesis. This time around, his weapon is capable of turning enemies into platforms to help him get around.


Secondly, Dingodile is back as a playable character. Now a diner-owner, Dingodile's new business venture is burned to the ground as he's dragged into another dimension.

Rather than using his traditional flamethrower, however, he now wields a vacuum cannon capable of sucking up crates, Wumpa, and enemies alike! It can also be used to cross large gaps, and he can tail slap enemies that get too close.
