Just before E3 I was hit with a ton of PR about upcoming games. While I don’t have a PS4 and will probably not get a PS4, I do like the character of Crash Bandicoot. This is due mostly to his being voiced by Jess Harnell of Rock Sugar. I do get to play as Crash in Skylanders Imaginators to that is cool. What is also cool is that the Crash Bandicoot games have been digitally remastered and are soon to be available on the PS4 as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Really soon, actually. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will launch globally on June 30, 2017 for $39.99.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy contains three full games from past adventures with more than 100 levels to explore. Players can relive all their favorite Crash moments in stunning HD glory and enhanced 4K viewing. The fully-remastered game has something for both new and existing fans to enjoy.

You can see the trailer here.

In other Crash news, the game will also feature another playable character, Coco, Crash’s sister. More details about that below in the press release.

For the First Time, Fans will be Able to Play as Crash’s Sassy Sister in All Three Games

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 13, 2017 – It’s going to be an epic blast from the past, as both your favorite marsupials from Crash Bandicoot™ are back! Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), announced today that for the first time Crash’s smart and spirited little sister, Coco, will be playable throughout the Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy. In Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, players can take a visually stunning, nostalgic ride as Crash or Coco in all three Crash games that started it all: Crash Bandicoot™, Crash Bandicoot™ 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot™ 3: Warped. E3 attendees can take the famous duo for a whirl by visiting the N. Sane Crash Experience in the lobby of the South Hall, where Activision is rolling out the orange carpet with hands-on demo stations and daily giveaways to welcome Crash Bandicoot fans and new players alike.

“We are so excited to give players the ability to play as Coco in all three games in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy,” said Jennifer Oneal, studio head for Vicarious Visions. “She’s not just Crash’s little sister, she is a force to be reckoned with. Our vision was to create a modern Coco for Crash fans and newcomers, and we think they’re going to love playing as her.”

In the remastered Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Coco has decided to hack into the Time Twister to travel back in time to help Crash in his previous adventures. Now as a fully playable (and a bit sassy) character across all three games, fans can switch between playing as Crash or Coco. Both characters have an N. Sane set of special attacks – each with their own style! Where Crash body slams enemies, Coco takes them out with the impact of a double leg drop! Fans will love to see all her new moves and animations, including idle moves like dancing with Crash.

“Activision recently left a nearly complete build of the remastered Crash trilogy at Naughty Dog, and I’ve played all three games,” said Evan Wells, President, Naughty Dog. “Vicarious Visions took amazing care in maintaining the feel and soul of the originals but brought the visuals up to modern day standards and added a number of new features that’s made them even more fun to play than remembered.”

Fans will enjoy seeing their beloved ‘90s video game icons like never before in this fully-remastered game collection. Developed by Vicarious Visions, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy takes advantage of PlayStation 4 features and offers brand-new lighting, animations, textures, models and recreated cinematics—all in dazzling “N. Hanced Fur-K” and PS4 Pro HD.

Full analog stick support and a unified save system and checkpoint system will make it easier for new fans to enjoy the classic adventures. And improved bonus levels and time trials in this epic trilogy will challenge the hardest of the ‘Coot core! Fans will enjoy seeing how they stack up against their friends and other players around the world via the online leaderboards.

Activision and Vicarious Visions are honoring the heritage of Crash throughout the trilogy in a variety of ways, including a fully-remastered game soundtrack packed with all the didgeridoos, xylophones and thumpin’ bass lines you can handle, as well as newly recorded dialogue from some of the familiar voice actors who appear in the original Crash Bandicoot games, including Jess Harnell, Lex Lang and Debi Derryberry, among others.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is slated to spin, jump and wump onto store shelves on June 30, 2017 and is available now worldwide for pre-order on PS4 and PS4 Pro for the suggested retail price of $39.99.
