It seems Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy might be coming to PC and Nintendo Switch, on top of a brand new game in 2019, if a new possible news leak is to be believed.
The Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was massive when it came out. It tore up the charts in a huge way, surpassing even the wildest dreams the game could’ve had. It really was a bit of a monster on the charts and it proved there is definitely a huge appetite for Crash still. It’s unsurprising then that it seems he has a promising future.
News has come that the N. Sane Trilogy might be about to find a few new homes. This comes by way of manager of merchandising company GB Eye, Max Arguile, who wrote in DHX Brands’ Licensing Source Book Europe (via IGN), who seemingly let slip that there were PC and Nintendo Switch versions of the game(s) on the horizon (there is no mention of Xbox). What’s more than that, its said that a brand new game will be coming in 2019. The excerpt reads:
The new game was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be another game in 2019.
For those wondering, Crash Bandicoot, while initially being a Naughty Dog and PlayStation game, is now under the roof of Activision. Obviously, this means the games don’t have to be exclusive anymore and are free to go on any platform they choose. This is good to see; it seems a great fit for Switch in particular. The Xbox One snub is weird, especially as the character has appeared on the brand previously, but maybe Sony worked something out. Or maybe it was just omitted. Or maybe none of this is happening. We will have to see, but the source of the leak seems legitimate.
