To my fiancee’s joy, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is headed to Nintendo Switch on July 10th! (and also Xbox and PC but it’s Nintendo’s day today). It was announced on their March 8th Nintendo Direct event. You can find the announcement trailer below.
The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy includes the remastered versions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped and first debuted exclusively on PS4 on June 20th, 2017.
This marks the first time the original trilogy has ever been available on a Nintendo platform which is actually a BIG deal.
With game exclusives becoming more and more coveted by game companies, putting Crash on competing consoles creates a precedent for more games being available to more gamers on more platforms. Could this be the beginning of a new trend in the gaming industry? Hopefully, but only time will tell.
Even more interesting, there are rumors of a new Crash Bandicoot game coming in 2019! But for now, we’ll keep you updated on all things Crash Bandicoot as more info becomes available.
