During Sony's State of Play, it was revealed Crash, Coco, and Neo Cortex won't be the only playable characters in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Developer Toys for Bob announced returning foe Dingodile will also be playable in the upcoming sequel, alongside the announcement of a new N. Verted mode. Crash nemesis Dingodile, the half-crocodile, half-dingo foe, joins the playable roster. [ignvideo url="crash-bandicoot-4-its-about-time-gameplay-overview-trailer-state-of-play-2020"] Additionally, Toys for Bob teamed with Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled devs Beenox to create the unique presentation of N. Verted mode, a twisted take on mirror modes, as players will be collecting Bumpa berries instead of the traditional Wumpa fruit. And as previously teased via preorder bonuses, Crash Bandicoot 4 will feature unlockable costumes, which are totally cosmetic and can be unlocked by players earning gems and completing challenges throughout Crash 4.
