Sony have released what seems to be a trailer for more or less finished product of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. The newly released trailer showed us a new, vibrant and up to date collection of Crash Bandicoot games in what appears to be a glimpse of Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes Back, level Hang Eight.
The game itself is sure to be an PlayStation exclusive, for now.
While it’s not known if we’ll see a multiplatform release, fans are still expecting an Xbox One version at some point. Speculation over the game platform was thrown into chaos when PlayStation Ireland appeared to delete a tweet that said ‘PS4 Exclusive’. The conspiracy theories have been rife ever since.
The newly polished, modern adaption of the Crash will feature original level designs from Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes back and Crash Bandicoot Warped. Everything about the game will see a return to what we know best about Crash Bandicoot.
Going on what has been showcased at PAX East 2017, it looks like a return to true form is on the cards. Activision have confirmed Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will launch on PlayStation 4 on June 30.
“Your favourite marsupial, Crash Bandicoot, returns on June 30th, 2017! He’s enhanced, entranced & ready-to-dance with the N. Sane Trilogy game collection. Now you can experience Crash Bandicoot like never-before in Fur-K. Spin, jump, wump and repeat as you take on the epic challenges and adventures through the three games that started it all, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. Relive all your favourite Crash moments in their fully-remastered HD graphical glory and get ready to put some UMPH in your WUMP!”

It’s great to see Crash Bandicoot back in action on the PlayStation 4 or any platform for that matter. A return to form will engage with old fans of course, but its yet to be seen if the market will shuffle over that little bit extra to allow new fans to experience one of gaming’s most vivid characters.
The outcome of this updated trilogy could see a return sequel for our manic friend.
Let’s hope so. Wump.
