The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is slated for 2017, much to the excitement of the original version?s fans. The announcement of classic game?s remastered version for PS4 took place earlier this month at the PlayStation Experience event.
The collection will consist of rebooted versions of the PlayStation One titles. They are Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy release date
There are still no exact details about when the game will arrive.
Online rumors followed by Expert Reviews all pointed to a first quarter launch date. Brazilian retailer website Zilliongames also recently put a placeholder for Crash Bandicoot?s remastered version. The date alongside the game art was February 28, 2017.
Furthermore, the release is likely to happen soon since Amazon already has a pre-order for the title. It is said to be priced at ?49.99 and has the usual price guarantee.
Crash Bandicoot?s remastered version has raised questions about the game?s improvements. Developers from Vicarious Visions narrated that a lot of the original codes and assets were practically unusable. This is because of how technology has advanced a lot since its release 20 years ago.
However, they clarified that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is not a remake. Reps said they did not want to fully re-create the game so as to keep a lot of the original elements that old-school players love.
?The N. Sane Trilogy is a remaster-plus,? they specified.

If online rumors are to be believed, a lot of original elements were definitely retained. However, Crash Bandicoot for PS4 will inevitably contain new features related to its gameplay.
?The first new features we?ve worked on take the best of each of the games,? said reps form Vicarious Vision. ?Then we applied them to all three titles in the N Sane trilogy.”
Among the new features include a unified checkpoint and save game system. This will have both manual and auto-saving. A unified menu system and Time Trials will also be integrated in all three installments.
