[UPDATE] Regarding Keymailer’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Listing (Platforms)


UpdateKeymailer’s co-founder has spoken about the matter on Reddit via a comment, here’s what he had to say:

Hey guys,

Keymailer co-founder here. This was news to me when I saw this thread. I reached out to the management team and apparently this is, sadly, an error on our side. The game was incorrectly tagged when we imported the upcoming releases. 

Apologies on behalf of the company for any disappointment on this, as a Switch owner and a fan of Crash Bandicoot, I would have been as excited to play this.

Recently, due to a post on the Nintendo Switch’s Subreddit by 4k60fpsHDR, some news outlets have been spreading the news of “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy listed for the Nintendo Switch”, which in the listing itself by a review code provider site “Keymailer.co”, did not clearly clarify the reasoning behind this inclusion on their website but did say that “the publisher [Activision] for that product is not on KeyMailer”, aside from the fact that it was first posted about on the Crash Bandicoot Subreddit a month ago by II_JumPeR_I, rugged under due to its inconsistency, doubted of trustworthiness or possible error on the site.

It is important to note that this post is to debunk the dubious notion about some “proofs” about the status of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s PS4 Exclusivity, somewhat inconsistent but still remained set in stone for the time being communication of it staying that way, in no way or shape that is about the platform favoritism or elitism, even with arguments about brand awareness being linked to its value of being on a single platform.

Examples range from the earliest posts on NeoGAF by Infinitemadness way back in June 2016, to the Best Buy Canada Store Banner that was claimed by a store staff as “outdated and incorrect”. Retailers around the globe also got somewhat mixed messages about the exclusivity from Sony and Activision, leading some social media profiles like PlayStation Ireland to claim that it’s a “timed exclusive” after them saying it is “exclusive”, whereas some promotional material claimed that the game is fully exclusive.

Regardless of how this unfolds, please keep in mind that unless otherwise confirmed directly by Activision, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remains a PS4 exclusive for the time remaining, taking things like this with a grain of salt.

My personal take as an author on this is: unlikely to happen, unless proven otherwise officially by Activision or with a more substantial proof of a leak.

Sony, Bring Back Crash camping + opinion about it



I have seen this camping before, to be honest, I don’t think it is going to take off regardless of number of supporters because Sony technically only has rights to publishing and using some of crash stuff, but does not own the IP, so chances of having a new game directly from Sony are very slim, UNLESS it is directly published by activision and co-published by sony, that would make more sense to me, but it is not viable due to the fact that Activision currently owns the IP

Anyway, I don’t think you should lose hope over my opinion if you are keen about this camping, or if you are a supporter of it, so go ahead and support it if you would like.

Also, those who may get upset or worked up about this camping, please not that I am just spreading by request by a couple of readers who requested me to spread this camping.
You can see more info at the link above though..

[MAJOR UPDATE] Crash isn’t and will never be a “Skylanders” toy, ever.


MAJOR UPDATE: The impossible happened, Crash Bandicoot is coming as a guest (PS3/4 Exclusive) Starter Pack to Skylanders Imaginators

Hey, hear that whining of fanboys complaining over this picture, saying he is going to be a “Skylander“?

Well, VV themselves debunked this thankfully, unfortunately, no new Crash game has been confirmed..

Quoting this interview from Metro, about the new Skylanders: Swap Force today, they were asked about the picture that was in their FB album, they said “Its nothing…Crash is different in personality”

GC: Oh, and is there anything you can say about Crash Bandicoot?

GB: [laughs] You’re talking about that photo with the poster on the wall?

GC: Yeah, I think there was some speculation you might be working on a reboot for Crash?

GB: Well, there’s nothing for me to say about Crash Bandicoot. [laughs] I mean I love the games, we’ve made some of the party games…

GC: Is there any reason why he couldn’t appear in a Skylanders game?

GB: Well, Crash Bandicoot is a very different personality to Spyro…

GC: But if I was Activision and I wanted to bring back Crash Bandicoot I would’ve thought a cameo in Skylanders would be a pretty good start.

GB: I think the best way to think about that is the same question you asked about Transformers and Spider-Man. Because the way I think about it personally is that Crash Bandicoot is a great IP, that’s had great game experiences in the past, but it’s very different than what Skylanders is today. That’s the way I think about it.

GC: Thank you, that’s great.

Oh, and I can tell you that Toys for Bob also back when they were choosing which series will be what resulted as “Skylanders” between Crash and Spyro, they choose Spyro and let Radical Ent. Develop Crash Landed (Which is the cancelled 2010 game, along with the CTR 2010 game)
