Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Released On Xbox, Switch And PC Today

Ever since it was released for PlayStation 4 last year, non-Sony users have been not-so patiently waiting for the re-release of the Crash Bandicoot trilogy and now the wait is finally over.

The N. Sane Trilogy, containing the first three games, is now available for the first time ever on platforms other than PlayStation, meaning you can get in on the fun if you own a Nintendo Switch, PC or Xbox One.

It was initially announced that it would be hitting other platforms on 10 July, but this date was brought forward slightly and now, 364 days after it was released on PS4, it's finally gone on sale.

The game features remasted graphics, which according to Activision include 'redone lighting and animations, newly-recreated cinematics'. There's also a couple of bonus levels to keep things interesting.

Fans are absolutely loving the nostalgia, plus the few extra features - such as auto-saving - of the trilogy, which contains the original Crash Bandicoot plus sequels Cortex Strikes Back and Warped.

The Activision games franchise has amassed an army of fans since it was first released in 1996 (feeling old yet?) but creators had been on a hiatus for six years, from 2011 to 2017. However, it seems as though a brand new game could be on the horizon.

In 2013, co-creator Andy Gavin told Official PlayStation Magazine: "There's an opportunity to reset the history, and go back to his creation story and the original conflict with Cortex.

"In that context, you could reprise classic Crash 1 and 2's settings and villains. It would make sense to use a more modern, free-roaming style.

"Given the current Crash games, people forget that he was once cool. Our Crash had a certain whimsical edge to him. Sure, it was goofy - but it wasn't dumb."

You can pick up the N Sane Trilogy here.

If this trip down memory lane has got you hungry for more, then here's some good news: a Spyro re-release Spyro might be just around the corner too.
