Here is an overview of the game, via Activision:


Crash Team Rumble takes Crash Bandicoot in a brand new and unexpected direction, placing the series’ iconic heroes and villains into a four-versus-four team-based competition. In each match, the two teams are tasked with capturing more Wumpa fruit than the other. Players will dash, jump, slide, and bounce across diverse and dangerous maps as they race to be the first team to collect and bank enough Wumpa to claim victory! Each hero has unique skills and abilities that players can bring into a match paired with a special power. Teamwork is integral to every match, as players need to work together to collect and score the most Wumpa fruit, capture key gems to boost their score, and block the opposing team from scoring.

Collect and drop off Wumpa fruit before the other team across a variety of maps, along with the heroes and villains of the Crash universe; all bringing their own unique abilities to make their team “wump” up more fruit than the competing team.
