Crash Bandicoot 4 easter egg might be teasing a sequel
A new Crash Bandicoot 4 easter egg has been discovered, and it’s one which might be teasing a sequel.
In the game’s very first level, Crash begins his journey on the beach, next to a TV set. Spinning the TV will reveal each of the logos for the three N. Sane Trilogy games, followed by Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time’s logo. The TV then switches off.
Initially, fans thought this was a simple nod to Crash’s past. The very first Crash Bandicoot game also started on a beach, while the area also features an inflatable Spyro The Dragon, Crash’s long time platforming rival.
However, if players return to the beach with maximum, 106% completion, a fifth logo will appear briefly. It shows a blue and orange circle with a wumpa fruit in the middle, but what it means is anyone’s guess.
There’s a new image that appears on the TV after you beat the game? Teasing Crash 5 or a spinoff? #PS4share pic.twitter.com/w6cEKJwcaE

With the distinctive orange and blue colours of Crash though, some fans suspect the Crash Bandicoot 4 easter egg may be a teaser for a sequel or spin-off.
After years without a major release, the Crash series has put out three games since 2017. Activision has put a lot of faith in the renaissance, so teaser or not, we’ll likely see more Crash in the future.
First there was the N. Sane Trilogy, which remastered the three original Naughty Dog games. This was followed by Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, which included a full remaster of the original Crash Team Racing, bulked up with characters and tracks from Nitro Kart, plus monthly Grand Prix events.
In between those two games, Activision also rebooted Spyro The Dragon with Spyro: Reignited, which was handled by Toys For Bob. These developers were the lead on Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, and Activision may push out a new Spyro game before dealing with Crash’s future.
Either way, fans will be excited by this new development.

‘SaGa Frontier’ is finally getting the remastered treatment
Square Enix has announced a remastered version of the PlayStation classic SaGa Frontier.
Titled SaGa Frontier Remastered, the game will be released in Summer 2021 for the PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android. It will feature updated graphics, cutscenes, support for high definition resolution and a new high-speed gameplay function, among other modern upgrades.
The remaster will also introduce a brand new protagonist, Fuse, who was supposed to be included in the original 1997 game but was cut as a playable character prior to release due to time constraints. New events and cutscenes that were not featured in the original have also been added.
Check out the trailer for SaGa Frontier Remastered below:
SaGa Frontier is the seventh title in the long-running SaGa franchise – a series of science fantasy open world role-playing video games. In 1997, SaGa Frontier was the first in the series to be released under the SaGa name in the West. Prior instalments were marketed as The Final Fantasy Legend games instead, or went unreleased outside of Japan altogether.
During its initial release, SaGa Frontier was noted for its innovative and non-linear ‘Free-Form Scenario System’, which allowed gamers to play as seven different protagonists, all with their own goals, story and more. In more recent years, the system has been compared to Square Enix’s 2018 turn-based RPG, Octopath Traveler.
Earlier this year, Square Enix released a remastered version of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles for PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android. That remaster featured enhanced visuals and cross-platform play, alongside other upgrades.
