You can check out more information about this controller from our previous reveal article, the new thing here is the packaging box from front and back. GAME UK is currently selling this as a preorder for £24.99 GPB, coming June 29th 2018.
So, the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC Steam is approaching very fast and if you happen to not have any of those consoles or even a PS4 prepared for the bandicoot, then there’s some good news if you shop at Argos for your video games and consoles.
There’s now a bundle that contains the game, the Nintendo Switch hybrid console and some accessories like a sleeve bag, a screen protector, cleaning cloth and a battery pack that can help keep you going on the go outside of the house. This bundle costs £327.99 GBP and is coming on release day.
Looks like HSN (Home Shopping Network), of all places in North America and the least I personally have expected to carry any kind of console bundle specifically for Crash Bandicoot for the country, happens to be selling an exclusive Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy with an Xbox One S White Console Bundle with extra goodies. Those goodies include 3 months of both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions in addition to an ugly black controller sleeve for some reason.
All of this costs $519.99 USD and you can pay for this right now, assuming this arrives to your doorstep on June 29th 2018 with several options: Single Payment, Two Payments of $259.98 or with a credit card VIP financing for 9 months if you are willing to make the sacrifice for the bundle.
Looks like we’re getting even more merchandise and this time, it’s from a company called UCC Distributing Inc., which sells plushies, stress balls and other variety of items for licensed brands and merchandise in stores like GameStop, EB Games and more. It seems like we’re getting a taste of what’s to come beyond the upcoming months with the barage of items coming from coasters, figures, mugs and more. The Crash Bandicoot Mystery Pack and Box is being distributed under the SquishMe brand, in which is a collection of squishy stress balls that’s commonly found in said stores above, the upcoming mystery collection has 8 variations starting with 2 Crash Bandicoot heads, Coco Bandicoot, Neo Cortex, Aku Aku, Uka Uka, an Extra Life Crate and a Wumpa Fruit.
These are just renders of what’s to come, we will be seeing them in the final form over the coming months, these cost $6.99 USD each, a whole box costs $109.99 USD, in which both are now available for preorder and shipping around October 2018.

There’s more Crash Bandicoot merchandise coming than what meets the eye for most fans craving for some extra additions to their collection, because PowerA, the same company that is releasing the branded cyan Nintendo Switch controller, is also going to release a special set of Heavy Metal Statues with coins included for Crash Bandicoot, Neo Cortex and Aku Aku. The Amazon listings reveal that these will be priced at $19.99 USD coming on July 15th 2018. More stores could potentially list this as time goes on and you can preorder yours now from the links below.
Thanks for the tip, Pat.
