Crash Bandicoot, ahem, crashed back into the modern gaming scene with the N.Sane Trilogy on PS4 last year – now, it seems Switch and PC players may be getting the game too.
This leak comes via the Licensing Source Book Europe, which is an unusual way of this news getting out. The 2018 entry of the book previously contained a quote from a licensing manager working for GB eye, claiming that the N.Sane Trilogy would be coming to Switch and PC in 2018. GB eye works with publisher Activision, which lends some legitimacy to this leak. As well as this, a brand new Crash Bandicoot game is mentioned for release in 2019 (the N.Sane Trilogy was a remake of the original 3 Crash Bandicoot games).
Since news has broken of this slip of the tongue, the book has been edited to remove word of N.Sane Trilogy ports or of a new game. However, the previous state of the publication was captured in a Eurogamer piece; you can see that image below:
Here is the quote containing the new information (also via Eurogamer): “The new game [N. Sane trilogy] was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be a new game in 2019. Activision have a five-year plan for this and GB eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.”
So, more Crash Bandicoot seems to be on the way. That’s all well and good, but let’s get to the heart of the matter – where is that Spyro remaster? Hm?
