Activision brings back classic 90s commercials to promote the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which offers remasters of the first three games in the platformer series, giving fans a triple dose of nostalgia.
When Crash Bandicoot landed on the scene in the 1990s, Activision marketed the game with some rather silly adverts showing the marsupial in day to day life. Fans loved the commercials and so it was only fitting that the company brought them back for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, showing Crash working up a sweat in the gym and getting a haircut to make sure that he looks his best for the remastered games. Crash may have been incredibly cool when he first landed on PlayStation, jorts and all, but now that he’s back he is buffer and flyer than ever.
Crash Bandicoot fans are over the moon with the throwback, saying that it really captures the nostalgia. Even though the pun about ‘fur-k’ (4K) is more than a little cheesy, fans are excited to see how Crash Bandicoot looks even better on PS4. Activision has already compared the remastered trilogy to the original games in a previous trailer, but any additional looks at Crash’s new and improved style are welcome.
Activision and developer Vicarious Visions will be counting on this nostalgia to make Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy a huge hit, but fans will also have their fingers crossed that the remasters will do well. Vicarious has previously stated that a brand new game could happen if the N. Sane Trilogy does well, as the companies involved will have proof that fans are eager to play through more of the charismatic character’s adventures.
The possibility of a Crash Team Racing remaster has also been floated by the developer. Fans were a little disappointed to see that it would not be included in the N. Sane remaster plans, saying that the iconic racing game is as important to PlayStation as Mario Kart is to Nintendo.
Again, if the remasters of the three original Crash Bandicoot games do well then surely there will be room for a CTR remaster too. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be out incredibly soon, so fans will want to keep an eye on the sales figures.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be available June 30 on PS4.
