Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Release For Xbox One, Switch, & PC Moved Up Two Weeks

Excited players won't have to wait until July to get their hands on the collection.


We reported in March that Crash Bandicoot would be making the leap to other platforms, most significantly the Nintendo Switch. Activision is so excited by the fan response, the publisher has announced that the release date for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has been moved up two weeks to June 29, 2018.

 The HD collection was originally slated for a July 10, 2018, launch for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The news was revealed on the official Activision blog.

The N. Sane Trilogy collection includes Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped, which we revisited last year. The games include improved visuals, an improved autosave feature, and other quality-of-life updates. The first two games also feature an unlockable Coco, who made her debut in the third game.

The preorder for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC is live on the official website and carries a $39.99 price tag. Stay tuned to Shacknews for more updates.

          Yeah they where cool, I was a fan. I am fine with it, and it doesn't really bother me but I know what you mean in those sections it is sort of weird(and has a claustrophobic vibe).

          The good thing is for the majority of the games you are always going forward anyways away from the camera so it is all good.

          I think it be pretty epic if they went full open world 3D next time and with a full rotating camera, that be pretty amazing!

      Hopefully it's not 30fps on the switch
