On June 30 of last year “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” (a remastered collection of the original three games) came to the PlayStation 4 and was a massive success. Since then people have been clamoring for this game compilation to come to other platforms, and the news we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” is coming to the Nintendo Switch on July 10.

Crashing the Switch

On March 8 Activision games announced on Nintendo Direct, Nintendo’s online presentation and announcement platform, that their remastered collection of the original three platformers: “Crash Bandicoot," “Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back,” and “Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped” will be ported to the Switch.

This announcement has confirmed rumors that “Crash ” would no longer be limited to the PlayStation 4 and would find itself on other platforms.

The development of “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” was handled by Naughty Dog, the series' original developer, and Activision’s sister company, Vicarious Visions, and despite being remastered, the game retains its original difficulty from twenty-two years ago.

So much so that some people have gone so far to compare the difficulty level to “Dark Souls.” This difficulty was increased further with the release of the Stormy Ascent DLC, a lost level that was pulled from the original series for being far too difficult.

A massive success

It’s no surprise that Activision has decided to port their game to other platforms considering the great success it brought the video game publisher.

With all the success Activison had last year “Crash” was one of their most successful releases. The remastered “Crash ” came to the PS4 on June 30 of last year and by the end of September it had sold 2.5 million copies. Activision also said that “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” was the top-selling collection in the history of PlayStation and is the fourth best-selling PlayStation title.

What’s next?

With all the success “Crash” has brought the company it wouldn’t be surprising to see other old classics revived and remastered like “Spyro the Dragon," “Crash Team Racing," and “Katamari Damacy.” However, would we probably have to wait for them to be released to PlayStation first before they came to any other platform.

That said, with how excited people are for the release of the compilation to the Nintendo Switch on July 10 it would be worth the wait.
