Activision announced today that the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be coming to PlayStation 4 on June 30, 2017. The collection will cost $39.99 at retail and will have support for the PlayStation 4 Pro.
The collection includes Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped all fully remastered with new textures, animation, and lighting. Developer Vicarious Visions has also added a new checkpoint system, analog support, and a remastered soundtrack.
"This is a AAA remaster. We're giving this the love and attention to detail that we pay to all of our AAA games. We're building it using the original level geometry so that it plays as close to the original as possible. We've also referred to this as a remaster plus, as we are adding new features that we think the fans are going to love!" said game director Dan Tanguay on the PlayStation Blog.
"Generally, while we strive to recreate each level so it looks and feels like the original, we also want to make sure that environments are fun, colorful, and read well in the fast-paced action with the addition of the new technology we are using," added art lead Dustin King.
This marks the first major Crash Bandicoot game since Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 back in 2010.
