Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

WHOA! The world is prepared for a colossal Crash event as everyone's favorite marsupial misfit has returned with three remastered classics that made Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy one of the most anticipated games in the summer while stirring up some childhood memories we love about one of the most iconic video game characters in history.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Yes, after a long period of time, the iconic Crash Bandicoot is back with this fresh new take on three iconic installments everyone will enjoy ranging from the original Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot WARPED. All three of these classics have been beautifully recreated and remastered in what they called it "N. Hanced Fur-K." That's Enhanced 4K to you if you got your PS4 Pro with you at home, but it's not just the beautiful recreation we're looking forward to, aside from the new cinematics, animation, lighting, and the music returned and recharged for the N. Sane Trilogy, because what we're looking at here is a revival of the trilogy and everything we know about these will get thrown out into hyperspace and we are going to play our familiar classics the next-generation way!

Playing with these games is like a step back to nostalgia. Like you and I, fans got hooked over exploring through beaches, ancient villages, tundras, pyramids, Ancient China, underwater, the future, heck they get even chased by giant creatures or ride cute little critters like the polar bear and the cute little tiger named Pura. They even also battle some of the rogue gallery of villains like Papu Papu, Ripper Roo, Pinstripe, the Komodo Bros., Tiny Tiger, N. Gin, N. Tropy, you name the rest, especially Crash's archnemesis, Dr. Neo Cortex. With this N. Sane Trilogy, it's like they're doing this stuff over and over again, even better, and when we say better, they really mean it. 

In addition to recreate some of the stuff we love about Crash, it comes with special extras such as full analog stick support, unified save and checkpoint system so you won't forget where you did it when the inevitable hits you from nowhere, improved bonus levels, and time trials. If you recall WARPED, there was a time trial segment where you have to beat the clock to score a relic, am I right?  But this is more than just relic hunting because no matter the game, all these levels had a leaderboard system to see how fast you cleared a level in addition to finding crystals and gems (once you cleared all the boxes, including those that you're not supposed to bump into such as TNT and Nitro crates).

There's more! Back in WARPED, you can only play as Coco in levels where you have to ride a tiger through Ancient China and jetski, but with this one, you can play Crash's sister, in all three games! Yep, you heard that right, all three games. Just add some twist to this classic series.

So, after years of waiting for this to return for next-generation console gaming, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is the one game we've been longing for one of the classic game icons desperate for a comeback and it's a clear example of what do you get when classic franchises that were dormant for so many years have been summoned again to do one last job. Most of the long-time fans of the series are having tears of joy, knowing that their favorite marsupial hero is back for one last job to keep the fans happy and I know that. Let's hope the forgotten ones will do the same as Crash for the sake of nostalgia and by making reborn classics better, the end result is a nostalgia all spiced up for those who are new to the classics. Nothing says making it more accessible to anyone than this.

If you are familiar with Crash Bandicoot, buy one now before anyone else does and see if the N. Sane Trilogy brings back the stuff you love about the games as well as the places, the sound, villains, and the WHOA!!!
