Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy finally launches on Xbox One and PC

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is finally available on Xbox One and PC for $39.99. The game was originally announced as a PlayStation 4 exclusive many months ago.

The collection includes the original Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. All three of them are regarded as some of the best platformers out there.

Crash Bandicoot

Dr. 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. Unfortunately, Crash Bandicoot's girlfriend just happens to be one of his victims. Players take control of Crash as he runs, jumps and spins through thirty levels of intense action on three different Australian islands. Only you can help Crash save the animals, his girlfriend, and foil Dr. Cortex's plan.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

The evil Dr. Neo Cortex is back but this time 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? Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back features larger environments, new animations, and a whole lot of colorful characters. One of the biggest additions in this game were the jet packs that let Crash navigate zero-gravity levels.

Crash Bandicoot Warped

Unlike the previous games, Crash Bandicoot Warped is a time-traveling adventure. It features new gameplay like scuba diving, riding a motorcycle, and even going airborne in a plane. You can also play as fan-favorite character Coco! You can gallop along the Great Wall of China on a tiger or go extreme on a ski. Players must prove their skills with new abilities like the "Body Slam", "Super Slide", and "Death-Tornado Spin". Lastly, all new enemies include bosses like Dingodile and of course, the return of some favorites like Tiny.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy supports Xbox One X and achieves "4K Ultra HD" resolution according to the listing.

  • Got this, along with preordering the Gekido sequel, this morning. Can’t wait to get out of work and play this (and continue playing Nier).
  • Heck yes! Will be downloading it ASAP!
  • I dunno what happened, but somewhere along the way the dev team fiddled with the controls, and it doesn’t feel the same as the original PS versions of the games. It’s actually harder to gage jumps, and the controls don’t feel as precise.
  • I experience the exact same thing. The jumps that I was able to make via muscle memory on the PSX all of a sudden threw me off.
  • I dunno why devs continue to try to fix things that aren’t broken in remasters and rereleases of games. All they had to do is put a fresh coat of paint on the game and it would’ve been fine. Instead, they fiddled with the controls and broke them in the process.
