The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy screenshot of Crash Bandicoot dancing

This might come as a bit of a surprise given that the information was about as easy to find as nuclear launch codes, but the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has been a timed-exclusive from the very beginning. With that in mind, I am extremely happy to say that the modern remasters of Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped will be coming to PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this July 10th!

In terms of improvements you can expect to see better visuals and support for modern resolutions, re-recorded dialogue and an improved soundtrack, a unified save and menu system, time trials for all three games, as well as a variety of tweaks to the gameplay mechanics. From what I've seen online most of these changes have been well received, though it does appear that the new jumping mechanics have made the original Crash Bandicoot even more unforgiving, as if that was possible!

I can't exactly offer you an objective opinion here given that the Crash series has been one of the very few games I owned as a kid, but what I will say is that you should at least check the N. Sane Trilogy out once it finally arrives. The originals are all great games, and if the remaster is as good as people say, then it is going to be well worth a spin for any fans of classic platformers.

You can learn a little bit more about the N. Sane Trilogy, or just follow the news leading up to its arrival, by heading over to either the official website or Steam. And since there is very little else to say, allow me to leave you with a brief gameplay video. It should give you a pretty darn good idea of what the 'new' Crash is all about. Enjoy!
