In the middle of all the hoopla and excitement that we’ll be seeing a Crash Bandicoot title appear on a Nintendo console, a few minor details of how that was going to happen got overlooked in the process. One of those being the fact that Vicarious Visions, who was the company that worked on the remastered version of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, is not the company that will be working on this version. According to Nintendo’s official listing for the game, it will still be released by Activision, but the development is being handled by Toys For Bob.
You might actually recognize Toys For Bob if you’ve paid close attention to some PS4 titles over the past few years, as they were the group behind the Skylanders titles. In fact, they’re the company who helped bring Crash into Skylanders: Imaginators back in 2016, so they know the source material. What does this really mean for the Nintendo Switch version? Not much, really. The company appears to be keeping the original remake intact for the most part, so it seems this is more of a move to a company that probably has free time to make the port work, as we’re sure Vicarious Visions are probably working on the Spyro demo someone found.
