Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy to remaster the original games for PS4

And there's a trailer showing off the updated gameplay and graphics.

Crash Bandicoot has been in hiding for the last few years, We got a tease that the series was being remastered into a package at E3, but not many details were released. Luckily, the PlayStation Experience this weekend revealed that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be coming some time next year.

The trilogy will take Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped and totally remake them for the PlayStation 4. The trailer below looks at the original games, then switches to what the same scenes will look updated for current gen.

The game is being redone by Vicarious Visions, with game director Dan Tanguay calling it a "remaster plus." It not only updates levels and character designs, but will add some new features as well, such as a unified save system and menu UI. There will also be time trials in all three games.

Check out the first remaster video below.

      I wonder if they have any plans to add PSVR support to this. I didn't think 3rd person action platformers would be the reason I would put on a VR headset, but Lucky's Tale is seriously one of my favorite games on the Rift.

        Crash would be a great candidate for VR support. Like you, third-person games wouldn't sell me on VR--I think they're inherently less immersive than first-person games--but Crash's world is so vibrant and fun that I'd love to trying romping through it.

          What I love about Lucky's Tale is that it feels like I'm in an interactive attraction at DisneyWorld more than a video game - especially the underground levels. I remember bits of Crash being like that and would love more platform games in VR. :D

        I was seriously impressed with the level of immersion in the PSVR robot rescue game--I'd love to have this or any other AAA platformer in VR. I even think shit like Uncharted would work great too, although the amount of development work to keep the camera from getting fucked would be a nightmare to design and implement unless the game were made from VR from the ground up.

      Played this on my PSP a couple years ago and it held up remarkably well. I don't have a PS4, but this (seriously) makes me want to buy one.
