How to transfer Crash 4 save to PS5

The Crash 4 PS5 save transfer allows players to upload their PS4 saves to the newly upgraded native PS5 version. However, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time doesn’t let players know they can do that, which would be helpful since the new game has much faster loading. Here’s how to transfer a PS4 Crash 4 save to PS5.

Most trophies earned from the PS4 version will automatically pop once the save transfer is complete. Many of the level-specific ones won’t pop, but most ones tied to progression and killing bosses will. Thankfully, players shouldn’t have to get previously attained collectibles — like that damn Blue Gem — again.
