Crash Bandicoot in 2019. What now? (CTR/New Platformer)


The success of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the return of Crash Bandicoot as a whole has been quite significant to many fans and people like me who had been hoping for years after the slow demise of 2010 and hoping for Activision to consider reviving the bandicoot when those prayers were answered in 2016. To us, the series is dear to many who have played the games and loved the characters and to Activision, is that there’s a viable market, even if it’s for “nostalgia”.

However, there has been some discussion on the upcoming rumoured 2019 game, on what it could be, what it might get announced and what it could set the precedence for the franchise.

GfK: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy #1 in the UK for the 7th week (Multiplatform)


Looks like the good news keeps coming for how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is performing in the UK according to GfK after the major Multiplatform release for the week of August 11.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the #1 spot overall in the charts, individually, it stood at #4 for Xbox One, #6 for Switch and #23 for the PS4 based on units and the #7 for Xbox One, #11 for Switch and #31 for the PS4 based on value. The Xbox One release took the #1 spot and Nintendo Switch took the #3 spot. The PlayStation 4 release currently stands at #8 and the PC release is currently at #26.

So, good stuff as usual from the UK, because it means that Crash Bandicoot with the N. Sane Trilogy being out already on the PlayStation 4 a whole year ago, still got brand power to sell and get buzz around the country overall with the continued streak, especially for those skeptical like me.

Support the movement, but please don’t harass Masahiro Sakurai. Thanks!

Author’s comment: Even though I don’t think Crash could be coming to Smash, I don’t think at least making a buzz about it would hurt in the long run and I fully support having him join. After all, I’ve been seeing lots of people wanting Crash Bandicoot to join SSB Ultimate’s roster.
