Toys for Bob, the Activision studio that developed Crash Bandicoot 4: Its About Time, made a nice animation who posted on Twitter. In this we can see Crash and Coco Bandicoot playing Uncharted, the Naughty Dog saga.
This little wink has liked the fans since it is the Sony studio that developed and created Crash and company more than 20 years ago. The first three marsupial games were the ones that made Crash a star pet and Toys for Bob had the mission to continue the trilogy with Crash Bandicoot 4.
A wink within another
Additionally, the wink refers to a scene from Uncharted 4 (developed by Naughty Dog) in which Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher play on the couch with a PlayStation One console. The scene shows them both playing the original Crash, so Toys for Bob has done the same to, in some way, return the gesture.
Ahahaha. ❤️ https://t.co/mcmKT2V8Gx

Current Naughty Dog Vice President and The Last of Us creator (along with Bruce Straley), Neil Druckmann, commented on the animation with a laugh and an emoji. Remember that these Crash rights no longer belong to Naughty Dog so these gestures are merely a diversion and we do not believe that they hide a second intention or something like that.
The gaming community has also reacted well and we can see as a renowned artist from the world of Crash, KempferZero published his own version of the joke with an image that will bring a smile to the players of both franchises.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time debuted on October 2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, received good reviews and recently players have discovered the first secret that refers to a new installment, although to see it you have to have completed the game at 106 %
