Crash is about to make his comeback with the Crash Bandicoot PS4 Original Trilogy Remaster! The PlayStation Experience that recently took place had unveiled a compilation of this classic. Titled the N. Sane Trilogy, it was announced back at E3, however, no details were given back then. As it turns out, it is a remaster of the original first three games.
These are the three original Crash Bandicoot games for the Crash Bandicoot PS4 Original Trilogy Remaster:
Crash Bandicoot (1996 – PlayStation)
Anyone who had owned the very first PlayStation during the era it was first released would definitely have fond memories of this game. Ask any gamer who had been playing since that era to name any PS1 title, and Crash Bandicoot would definitely be one of it.
The first outing of Crash, he is on a quest to save his girlfriend Tawna from the clutches of Doctor Neo Cortex and save the world along the way.
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (1997 – PlayStation)
The success of the first game spawned this sequel worthy of the name of the first game. This time Crash is with his sister Coco. Series villain Doctor Neo Cortex appears again but appears to have a change of heart this time, giving Crash the task to gather crystals in order to save the world from impending doom.
The sequel to the first game was also well received by fans of the first series. Generally it is even considered superior than its predecessor in overall terms.
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (1998 – PlayStation)
The story takes place right after the events of the 2nd game. An evil entity has been unleashed this time and its up to Crash and Coco to save the world from being enslaved as they travel through time.
Usually, a sequel or the third game of a series wouldn’t be as well received as its predecessors, but this isn’t the case with these games. It was just as well received, if not even more, that it even earned a reputation for being the best-selling foreign PS1 title in Japan!
The Crash Bandicoot PS4 would still retain the original gameplay and appeal of the original games, but this time with enhanced graphics. As mentioned in the Nerdist, despite being the same from the original, the game was rebuilt almost from scratch.
GameSpot had also stated that Loco Roco and Patapon are also slated to have a remastered release next year.
