After years of rumors, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is coming in June to PlayStation 4 to bring the famous marsupial back into action.
Will it be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, though? There have been conflicting reports on this matter. PlayStation Ireland's Twitter account had mentioned that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy would be an exclusive for Sony's latest home console. However, shortly after that, they rectified such info with wording that suggested a temporary exclusive; the former tweet was also deleted.
will launch on 30th June 2017. To clarify our earlier post, it will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro first.

Earlier today, though, Sony sent out a newsletter containing many of the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusives and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was among them.
This is made even more confusing by the fact that an Activision representative passingly mentioned a PC port last month during PAX East. Is it a console exclusive, a full exclusive or just a timed exclusive? Activision will have to clarify that eventually.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a collection of remasters of the first three titles in the series: Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strike Back and Warped. Originally made by Naughty Dog, this collection of remasters is being developed by Vicarious Visions.
The game will feature Physically Based Rendering, 4K resolution (on the PS4 Pro), rebuilt characters, levels, cinematics and remastered audio. Vicarious Visions also announced the following new features:
- Unified checkpointing & save game system. This includes manual and auto-saving. (Yes, the first game now has a proper save game system)
- Unified menu system.
- Time Trials in all three games!
Take a look at this new gameplay video captured at 4K@60FPS from PS4 Pro to check how good Crash looks now.
