Crash Bandicoot 4 microtransactions detailed in listing [UPDATE]

Update: Developer Toys for Bob has issued a statement that says Crash Bandicoot 4 will not include microtransactions in the form of in-app purchases.

“Hey Crash fans! We saw that there is confusion about [microtransactions] in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time and wanted to clarify,” the statement reads.

“There are NO MICROTRANSACTIONS in the game. As a bonus, the Totally Tubular skins are included in all digital versions of the game.”

Original story: Crash Bandicoot 4 microtransactions have been detailed in a game listing found on the Microsoft Store.

The listing, found here, says that the game “Offers in-app purchases” — which really shouldn’t be a surprise considering the title will offer skins for both Crash and Coco Bandicoot as a pre-order bonus. If in-game purchases and microtransactions are a part of Toys for Bob’s latest, it’s likely they’ll be in the form of additional cosmetics.

“New abilities? Check. More playable characters? Yep. Alternate dimensions? Obviously. Ridonkulous bosses? For sure,” the listing continues. “Same awesome sauce? You bet your sweet jorts. Wait, are they actually jorts? Not in this universe!”

Maybe we’ll get jorts as DLC?

Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time heads to Xbox One and PS4 from 2 October.
