About the game
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a platform video game compilation developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision for PlayStation 4. It is a collection of remasters of the first three titles in the Crash Bandicoot series: Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped, which were originally developed by Naughty Dog for PlayStation in the 1990s. The game was released on June 30, 2017, receiving generally favorable reception from critics, who praised the game’s faithfulness to the original trilogy. By 2018, it had sold over two million copies worldwide. Ports for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows will be released in July 2018.
N. Sane Trilogy is a collection of remasters of the first three games in the Crash Bandicoot series, Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped, which all feature Crash Bandicoot traversing various levels in order to stop Doctor Neo Cortex from taking over the world. Like in the original games, Crash uses spinning and jumping techniques to defeat enemies, smash crates, and collect items such as Wumpa Fruits, extra lives, and protective Aku Aku masks. The trilogy adds new features across all three games, including unified checkpoints, pause menus and save systems, including both manual and automatic saving, time trials, which were first introduced in Warped, and the ability to play most levels in each game as Crash’s sister Coco. It also features remastered audio and cutscenes, including new recordings of the games’ dialogue given by the franchise’s more recent voice actors.”
In this way, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is no longer exclusive to PlayStation 4 and the marsupial returns to a Nintendo console, after Crash: Fight of Titans, Crash: War to the Coco-Maniac and Crash Boom Bang!
