Crash Bandicoot is poised for a long-awaited resurrection with the upcoming summer release of Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy. Gamers will be able to revisit the three iconic PlayStation games and return to each level with updated graphics and enhanced gameplay features. Many fans have been wondering just how good the new versions will look and we now have an extended look at some N Sane Trilogy gameplay footage.
The gameplay footage comes from the official Crash Bandicoot Facebook page and features a full play through of the Upstream level. Old school Crash fans may remember that Upstream is the fifth level of the very first Crash Bandicoot game.

Gamers who played Crash back in the day are likely having gem path flashbacks while watching this gameplay video. All the original features are definitely present and accounted for and the updated graphics look fantastic. Despite how fun it looks, this collection may still be a hard sale for some players who are sick of remasters. The game doesn't seem to bring a ton that is new to the table, but enough time has passed since these games were released that a straight up remake doesn't seem like a bad thing. That said, these games may be arriving a year or two late, as the current console generation is experience a serious bout of remaster fatigue. Hopefully for the sake of future Crash games, the franchise's loyal fanbase will help make this revival a success.
What do you think of the new look for this classic level? Does the game bring enough newness to the table to make it worth the purchase? Let us know in the comments.
Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy will be available on June 30th, exclusively for PlayStation 4. A PC port may also be on the way, but hasn't been officially confirmed or dated.
