IGEA: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy takes the #4 spot in Australia and New Zealand (Week 38)

Looks like we’ve got an update on how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is performing so far in Australia and New Zealand according to IGEA after the major Multiplatform release for Week 38. We will be splitting them based on the base game and platform parity from both countries. This means that the charts will differ based on the sections.

Australia: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the #4 spot behind NBA 2K19, Spider-Man and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider overall in the charts. The Xbox One took the #5 spot and Nintendo Switch taking the #5 spot. The PC and PlayStation 4 releases are unfortunately absent.

New Zealand: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the #3 spot behind Spider-Man, NBA 2K19 and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider overall in the charts. The Xbox One took the #3 spot and Nintendo Switch took the #5 spot. The PlayStation 4 release from last year took the #8 spot, while the PC release is unfortunately absent.

PlayStation UK Access: Crash Team Racing Livestream on Saturday @ EGX 2018 & Vicarious Visions’s “Exciting new project”


At this point, we all know it’s going to happen, whether some people like it or not. However, although it is unlikely to have a CTR Remake revealed on a day like this, it’s still interesting to Livestream a game from 1999 in the middle of upcoming and newly released games at a major expo event, namely EGX 2018.

That’s what PlayStation Access, an official entity of PlayStation UK, is going to be doing on Saturday, as part of a 4-day live streaming #EGXPlayStation stage showcase from Thursday, September 20, 2018, to Sunday, September 23, 2018, with a slew of other video games to talk about it live. The EGX Livestream for CTR will commence at 12PM BST (or 7AM EST), with the description being the following:

Take on Rob at this karting classic!

He reckons he’s unbeatable – can you prove him wrong?

Also, JumpButton has just discovered that Vicarious Visions posted openings that involve multiplayer netcode engineers and server engineers, which involves coding and optimizing the online multiplayer component of a video game. These openings are to prepare them for an “Exciting new project”. JB says that he’s “not saying it means anything” but you never know what could end up happening…

We can’t wait to see more and more of this unfold in the coming months, stay tuned.

[LINKED] TGS 2018: SEGA’s Booth Floor Map, NST referred to as CB’s “Triple Exciting Collection”

This linked post is a continuation from the last post related to TGS 2018, regarding the booth that NST Switch will be playable at in SEGA’s Section at the event. The thing to note here is that the booth map refers to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy in plain English and its Japanese name “Crash Bandicoot: Three Bottoms!” differently somewhat.

In this case, it’s named “Crash Bandicoot: Triple Exciting Collection“, more similarly done to the global title “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy“.

Watch the on-going livestream for the event, they mention NST there…

Thanks again for the tip, Crash_FANjp!
