Crash Bandicoot Trilogy No Longer Exclusive, Coming To Switch

Released last year as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, remastered versions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped are coming to Switch on July 10.

The Crash Bandicoot series was a PlayStation exclusive when it debuted back in 1996, but these days a bandicoot's gotta stretch his legs. The Switch seems like a perfect place to play the remasters, which take the original level data from the original trilogy and layer on shiny new graphics.

Announced during today's Nintendo Direct presentation, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is due out on the Switch July 10.


    Woot. Crash on the go is awesome. Wonder if this means Xbox and PC might be seeing it come over now as well.

      From what other sites are reporting that's a yes it is.

        Hope they submit it as a XPA title so that I can continue enjoy it on my Alienware or Surface Pro when I'm out. Hope they also compile an ARM64 build so it runs on small size Win10 on ARM.

      It has been confirmed for both xbox and PC

    omg this is freakin awesome news... i was gonna buy a PS4 just for this game at christmas this year... so happy i can buy a switch instead and get so much more out of it =D

    This seems like big news. I thought Naughty Dog was a Playstation-exclusive developer. I'm interested in how this was made possible.

      Naughty Dog is, but Crash rights belong to Activision.

        Ah, gotcha. Thanks!

          Also Crash has already been on Nintendo before, back on GameCube.

            Actually, he was last on the Wii and DS with Crash Mind Over Mutant and Crash of the Titans.

    I seem to remember that is was only ever going to be a timed exclusive for the PS4, with at the very least an Xbox One release planned from day 1. Maybe that was just wishful thinking on my behalf.

      Someone found Xbox control art in the game files for the PS4 version.

        that's because when they test ps4 games they still use xbox controllers ;)

    Don't understand why almost every website does not specify that it also will come to the PC ?!
