Last year Activision and developer Vicarious Visions announced that the three Crash Bandicoot titles released for PS1 (the original, Crash 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash 3: Warped) were being remodeled from the ground up and would be remade in high-poly, HD modern glory, all in one package. What we didn’t know at the time was the street date, and as of the release of the video below, we can say it’s June 30.
They also let us know the price today: just $40! If you’ve never played any of the Crash titles or you just want a blast from the past, this is a great value that’ll last you a while. Check out Crash’s new trailer below, followed by official details.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, Crash Bandicoot® N. Sane Trilogy is being built from the ground up for the PlayStation 4 with brand-new lighting, animations, environments and recreated cinematics—all in stunning “N. Hanced Fur-K” and PS4 Pro HD. Fans new and old alike will enjoy seeing the beloved ‘90s video game icon like never before in this fully-remastered game collection.
What’s more, the trilogy will feature full analog stick support, a unified save system and unified checkpoint system, making it easier than ever for new fans to enjoy the classic adventures. Additionally, improved bonus levels and time trials throughout the games will make this an epic trilogy for the hardest of the ‘Coot core!
Activision and Vicarious Visions are honouring the heritage of Crash throughout the trilogy in a variety of ways, including a fully-remastered game soundtrack, packed with all the didgeridoos, xylophones and thumpin’ bass lines you can handle, as well as newly recorded dialogue from some of the familiar voice actors who appear in the original Crash Bandicoot games, including Jess Harnell and Lex Lang, among others (as appropriate).
