Despite recent reports suggesting that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane trilogy would be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, it looks like that is no longer the case. The PlayStation Ireland Twitter account recently suggested this game would be available exclusively on PlayStation 4, but they have since deleted the tweet.
Now, they have posted a new tweet that reads, “To clarify our earlier post, it will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro first.” While they didn’t come out and confirm what other platforms the game will be coming to, this definitely seems to mean that PlayStation 4 won’t be the only platform. It makes sense, seeing as Sony no longer owns the Crash series and Activision will want to get the game purchased by as many gamers as possible.
While the game is a remaster of the original PlayStation games, it’s much more than a simple polish job. “This is a AAA remaster,” says Dan Tanguay, Game Director for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. “We’re giving this the love and attention to detail that we pay to all of our AAA games. We’re building it using the original level geometry so that it plays as close to the original as possible. We’ve also referred to this as a remaster plus, as we are adding new features that we think the fans are going to love!”
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was originally announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, though there had been hints prior to that suggesting that something Crash-related was in the works. The original games were known as some of the best platformers of 90s, though things didn’t go so smoothly for the series beyond that point. Whatever other platforms it may or may not end up coming to, we do know that it will be launching for PlayStation 4 on June 30th.
