Dingodile returns as a playable character in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time



During yesterday's State of Play presentation, PlayStation fans got to hear a few new tidbits regarding Toys 4 Bob's upcoming platforming adventure Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. While the info was fairly scant, we did find out that classic villain Dingodile will be joining Crash and Coco on the sequel's roster of playable characters.

Dingodile first made an appearance in the Crash Bandicoot series back in 1998's Crash Bandicoot: Warped. As his name would suggest, Dingodile is part dingo, part crocodile, not unlike the characters in Disney's forgotten series, The Wuzzles. Very unlike The Wuzzles, however, is Dingodile's penchant for torching everything and everyone with his trusty flamethrower.

"After Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Dingodile hung up his old flamethrower-rocket launcher combo and retired from a life of villainy," said Toys 4 Bob in a press release. "But now he's back with unfinished business, falling through space and time into another dimension where his adventure to return home begins."

Alongside Dingodile's appearance, Crash Bandicoot 4 has also unveiled its new "N.Verted" mode, which will allow players to "mirror mode" any stage in the new title. But it won't just be a simple screen-flip, as each N.Verted world will feature new redesigned visuals, music, and sound. That's a neat touch. Crash Bandicoot 4 will be packed full of alternate characters skins, though Activision has reiterated recently that the sequel will be microtransaction free.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time launches on PS4 and Xbox One October 2.
