Activision has just officially announced what the bandicoot fans are in for store for the special offers and bundles at the holidays this year. Here’s the following:
- Special Pack-in Black Friday Bundle from GameStop with the “N-Sane Socks” bundle that includes the game and the new socks exclusive to the bundle, similar to the new socks that have been rolling out.
- Walmart’s own Black Friday Bundle of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy that includes Stormy Ascent, presumably the game with the patch 1.01 and the DLC included on-disc (don’t quote us on that).
- Finally, fans will be happy to know that more outfittings and clothes will be rolling out to major clothing and department stores from Walmart, Amazon, Spencer’s and Urban Outfitters.
Of course, fans can also get First4Figures PVC figure and the Numskull merchandise directly online, pre-order the Funko Pops of the franchise as well. Anyways, that’s all for now for the news. Stay tuned for online listings of the two new bundles of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

Earlier today at 4:30PM EST, Activision Blizzard have begun their Q3 Results Conference Call for their performance before the big release day of Call of Duty: World War II tomorrow, it mentioned the success of Destiny 2 and rise of Candy Crush Saga despite failing to meet expectations. On that note, Crash Bandicoot was mentioned in the call without any total units sold (as expected) but was vaguely noted to have had “strong performance” alongside Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered and StarCraft Remastered in their “Remastered” library effort.
Last time we’ve reported total units number, it came via ZhugeEX with the approximation of more than 2.5 million units worldwide since the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on Friday, June 30th 2017.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
Today’s the anniversaries of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (1997) and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (1998) releases in North America!
News has been quite slow for the marsupial bandicoot as of lately, as everyone is already anticipating for what’s next around the corner in the coming months, especially with Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience 2017 coming up, who knows what those could hold inside…
Anyways, while browsing for some VG Magazines on Issuu, I found a new unseen Crash Bandicoot render on the Activision Consumer Products advertisement on some of the MCV issues. This pose can also be seen in the launch trailer of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the unused First 4 Figures PVC Model Render.
