Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

I've had a lot of fun recently introducing my kids to one of my favorite video games characters from the '90s, Crash Bandicoot; who was recently added to the Skylanders video game along with his arch-nemesis Dr. Neo Cortex as part of the new Imaginators edition's lineup of Sensei characters as fully-playable toys.  Now I'll be able to replay the zany marsupial's classic video games with my kids as well because Activision is releasing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy which is a fully-remastered high definition collection of the Crash Bandicoot™, Crash Bandicoot™ 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot™ :Warped video games from my youth.  Spin, jump, and wump your way through the epic challenges and adventures that started Crash Bandicoot mania when the updated video game collection is made available for Playstation4 launching globally on June 30, 2017 for $39.99.

Crash Bandicoot® N. Sane Trilogy has brand-new lighting and recreated cinematics in stunning “N. Hanced Fur-K” and PS4 Pro HD.  New animations, visual effects and environmental details let players spin, jump and jet pack their way through the lush—and furriest—Wumpa Island yet!  Here are a few more updates that highlight how these revisions are enhancing the games:
Bringing Back the Beat – The new collection features a fully-remastered game soundtrack, packed with all the didgeridoos, xylophones and thumpin’ bass lines fans can handle!
Original Story, New Tech – Full analog stick support, a unified save system and unified checkpoint system make it easier than ever to enjoy the classic adventure. Plus, improved bonus levels and time trials everywhere will make this an epic trilogy for the hardest of the ‘Coot core!
New Cinematics – All the beloved cinematics in this trilogy are being lovingly re-crafted. In the intro cinematic, Crash Bandicoot’s origin story shows our villains, Dr. Neo Cortex and Dr. Nitrus Brio, try to evolve Crash into an evil mutant general, but it doesn’t go quite as planned!

Say What? – Fans of the Crash Bandicoot games may recognize some familiar voice actors appearing in Crash Bandicoot® N. Sane Trilogy, such as Jess Harnell and Lex Lang

For those of you who may not be familiar with the original Crash Bandicoot games here is a summary of what you'll be experiencing when playing them in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy:

Crash BandicootDr. Neo Cortex has a plan to take over the world, and he wants to create genetically engineered animals to do his bidding. To create his minions, Cortex kidnaps as many animals as he can; Crash Bandicoot’s girlfriend just happens to be one of his victims. Take control of Crash as he runs, jumps, and spins through 30 levels of intense action on three different Australian islands. Only you can help Crash save the animals, save his girlfriend and foil Dr. Cortex’s plot.
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back The evil Dr. Neo Cortex is back…out this time to save the world? And he’s asking for help from his arch nemesis, Crash Bandicoot? Is this just a conniving plan to lure Crash into Cortex’s next dastardly experiment? Can Crash win again or will he join Cortex’s mindless zoo? Bigger free-roaming 3-D environments, all-new animations and a whole host of colorful characters – watch as our hero Crash, ice-skates, rodeo-rides a polar bear and jet-packs through zero-gravity in the continuing adventures of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back – This time he ain’t joking!

Crash Bandicoot Warped Oh yeah…he’s back…AND he’s ready! It’s a Whole New Time-Traveling Adventure! All new-style gameplay action – scuba dive, ride a motorcycle or a baby T-Rex and go free-roaming airborne in a plane! Play as Coco! Gallop along the Great Wall of China on a tiger, go extreme on a jet-ski and other high-flying surprises! Prove your skills with the new Super-charge Body Slam, Super Slide, Double Jump, Death-Tornado Spin and a Laser-Guided Bazooka. All new enemies include a new Big Boss, Uka Uka, N. Tropy, a menacing Dingodile and of course, the return of some favorites like N. Gin and Tiny. More Action. More Fun. More Puzzles and Secret Levels. And you didn’t think it could get any better!

Don't miss out on the looney, wacky, fast paced fun Crash Bandicoot's video game adventures when they become globally available to play on Sony's Playstation4 beginning June 30, 2017.
