While 2020 has been a bit of a write-off for most, at least Toys for Bob and Activision have brought a little joy to our lives with Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. As the name suggests, this is the long-awaited sequel to 1998's Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped and ignores the convoluted timeline in favour of a direct continuation. With Crash 4 reinventing the franchise, there have already been questions about whether it will lead to Crash 5. Now, players think they've found a secret Easter egg that could've confirmed it.

Alongside snazzy graphics upgrades and an inventive storyline, Crash 4 introduced some brand new game mechanics in the form of time-bending abilities and the use of Quantum Masks. It's safe to say there was a lot of content to chug through, meaning It's About Time is particularly hard to polish off if you want to reach 100%. Now, we've got a whole new reason to complete everything (and then some) thanks to the exclusive Easter egg that hints at Crash 5


How to find the Crash Bandicoot 4 Easter egg

To find the super-secret Crash Bandicoot Easter egg, you'll need to have completed 106% of the game - yep, it's actually possible. To hit this impressive milestone, you need to conquer absolutely everything, including the N.Sanely Perfect Relics. It's only here's you'll get to see the second ending. After hitting 106%, head back to the very first level and use Crash to spin the TV.

The box should jump to life and flicker through logos from the first four Crash games, then flash with a mysterious symbol and turn off. Previously, the TV would just cycle through the old game logos without this added extra. Shared on Twitter by Kevin Fagaragan, it seems to be a pair of wumpa fruit surrounded by a swirl of orange and blue. It sent the Twitterverse into overdrive with fans trying to decipher what it means.


Crash Bandicoot 4 Easter egg: What does it mean?

Speculation was rife as fans quickly jumped on the Crash 5 bandwagon. Still, others pointed out it's surely too early to be thinking about the next chapter. Elsewhere, someone suggested the look of the logo looked a little similar to the Smash Bros. logo, guessing Crash could be coming to Nintendo's fighter series. This isn't the first time we've heard about Crash entering the Smash Bros. ring, but it's purely speculation.

Others claimed it could be some sort of Crash and Spyro crossover, which would definitely work considering they're both owned by Toys for Bob and have both found a reinvigorated fanbase with remastered versions of their most popular games. Another logical choice would be a Crash 4 DLC or PVP that would add new content. However, the most popular idea is a remastered version of Crash Bash that would bring the beloved party game to next-gen systems. Ultimately, we're left mulling this one over for now and simply wishing for what might never happen. Is Crash really about to come spinning back into our lives? Watch this space.
