    Pirate level footage, now with music!
    Looks and sounds absolutely fantastic. This is exactly how I always imagined a Crash 4 would be, more than 15 years ago. 
    Also:

    This looks like branching paths to me.

    So, I was rewatching some of AntDude's old Crash videos, more specifically this one.
    It's a pretty funny video, you should check it out, and his channel too.
    Aaaaanyyyyyways.
    I noticed something interesting, something I wasn't expecting and didn't saw anyone else pointing out yet, probably because it's related to a, certainly not obscure, but definitely overlooked version of a game: Crash of the Titans on the DS. The part that called my attention starts at 5:30 on the video. First off, the nitro crates design, it's exactly the same as Crash 4, it has a single letter "N" in yellow, instead of the word "nitro". Then, later on, we see Crash grinding on rails, even switching between them, again, just like Crash 4. And the cherry on top, you can play as Nina, one of the villains of the game, on her quest to transform woodland criters into mutants with a ray gun.
    I guess T4B took a few interesting pages from the Titans games. 
    I just thought it was cool, that's why I'm sharing 😁

    Did a gif of where we can see a lower path with boxes. IMO it's clear that the rail (where Crash is grinding & hanging) is looping around to the left and starts descending. Crash will end up on the lower section where there are platforms, crates and will eventually go through the small archway.


    So the lower section is not an alternative route. It's all part of the same route.

    I think it's more likely that either the crates are all on the same path and the area below the rail was a sneak peak, or that it's possible to loop through every path in the level before you go to the goal. It'd be hard to pull off the second thing but I'd love that.

    The masks and other playable characters are definitely much better ways of switching things up. It straight up reminds me of how Spyro kept things fresh rather than Crash.
    That IGN video is interesting because it does look like levels will have alternate paths...I hadn't thought of it until Jango brought it up but how is that going to work with the crate count? Maybe you just need to break "x number of crates" rather than every single crate in that level, and there's just enough regardless of which way you go? Or maybe it's as simple as the grinding section loops back, so you have to go through the lower path later and things are still linear? If that's the case that's perfectly fine, but I like the idea of there being paths since it feels kinda Sonicy, and this is a new Sonic's Ass Game after all.

    Actually, they never said no MTX, they said no paid DLC, but it was misreported everywhere. On the subject of MTX they always said they were ''evaluating it'' and announced at launch they'd include it later down the road.

    I think you all are panicking for nothing. It'll just be some different costumes. 
    If there's any unique characters, it'll be full DLC. Which is fair, I think...

    Well, if we take Spyro as a reference, Toys for Bob actually improved his controls in Reignited Trilogy, it's 10 times more responsive and snappier than the original. Vicarious Visions, on the other hand, didn't quite got Crash's controls / physics right. It's not unplayable, but it can be annoying to do some jumps, and the hit box (both Crash's and the enemies') is also a little unfair.
    So yeah, I'm trusting Toys for Bob more on this one. Also, according to the official website, Beenox is helping them too. And Beenox knows the Crash shit.

    People are theorizing Cortex's new design looks odd because he's younger, makes sense, his lines at the start of the trailer imply he and Tropy were stuck in the past as babies until they got old enough to act again.

    Just wanted to chime in and say I'm pleased we're finally getting a "true" sequel to the original classics. I'm not overly hyped as the N-Sane trilogy satisfied my craving for classic Crash, but a new game with hopefully lots of new ideas whilst staying true to the original successful formula looks fun. I do hope there's enough new levels/enough originality so that this feels like a true sequel as opposed to a "Crash Mania" (like Sonic Mania with more re-imagined than brand new content). Whilst it might seem weird getting Toys for Bob to make a new game instead of Vicarious Visions, I think Toys for Bob did a brilliant job with the Reignited trilogy (and also have some experience with Crash in Skylanders), so I trust them to do CB4 justice.
    ...and it looks nice. The quantum masks changing up the gameplay; slowing down time and anti gravity-walking on walls & ceilings looks interesting enough.  I like the inclusion of grinding on rails, feels natural for a Crash game.
    Wonder what the other two masks do? Maybe one mask allows Crash to shrink so that he can get through smaller areas, or allows him to fly maybe?
    I guess time-relics are a certainty, I mean they are kind of a staple to the series, although I've had my fill of them and would rather Toys for Bob come up with something else. Actually I'd rather there be more stages to play through (than in the original trilogy) so that time-relics aren't needed to pad out the game.
    The transition from 3D to 2D sections (and back to 3D etc) in the original Crash games was something which worked well and it looks like it's been implemented well in CB4.
    Whilst I don't mind there being unorthodox levels (like the bike racing, jet ski & planes levels in Crash 3), I hope a large majority of the stages are more traditional platforming which is what made Crash 2 so good (and better than 3 IMO). I'm curious to see what the controls will feel like. I think Crash 2's tighter control (from the original trilogy) was much appropriate than Crash 1&3's more slippery controls.
    Also good to hear there are multiple playable characters. If you can the full game with other players (like in Rayman Origins) it could be a lot of fun.
    As for the new designs, yeah Coco & Cortex will take some getting used to. I like Crash & N-Gin's designs.
    As for other returning villains. I assume Dingodile is & N-Trophy are a certainty. I also hope Tiny returns. At the same I hope they come up with some creative new villains & boss fights.

    There are a few interesting things to be noted in these gameplays. The return of gem routes for example. I believe a dev confirmed that this game will have more gems than usual and getting the clear gem still requires you to break EVERY crate in the level.

    Crash himself arguably looks better than ever. I love how he looked in N Sane, I love how he looks here.  I do think Coco and Cortex look a bit better in N Sane, but whatevs, nothing wrong with Toys For Bob painting things with their own brush.

    I wonder if Toys for Bob will get Josh Mancel to compose, like how they got Stewart Copeland, eventhough he only actually made one new song, having the original guy on board would help the sound team to get those Crash-y beats right.

    Or it's straight up not coming to it, because it'd be too much work? Or maybe due to the extra work it's taking longer, like with Spyro.

    Kinda hope Insomniac just stick to what they were doing with Miles in the original game and evolve his character naturally rather than feeling the need to kowtow to Into the Spider-Verse just because a lot of people love it. The original game was really cool because it was a fresh take for a new universe and it'd be a bummer for an incarnation released following the creation of it to suddenly divert things.
