Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will apparently have “100+ levels of play” along with new game modes and new abilities, according to an email from GameStop.
The email, as posted on Twitter by BroskiBae (and originally posted by StrawHatRy in the Crash Bandicoot Reddit Discord server), says that Crash Bandicoot 4 is a “full sequel with 100+ levels of play, new game modes, and new abilities for innovative gameplay.”

For comparison, the original Crash Bandicoot trilogy had approximately 90 levels between all three games, averaging around 30 levels per game depending on whether you’re including secret levels or not.
In related news, it was recently confirmed that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will not contain microtransactions, after confusion arose regarding a notification on the Microsoft Store that said that the game would “offer in-app purchases.”
