It’s been a long time coming, but Crash Bandicoot finally made his reappearance last month to much success. The remastered collection quickly reached the top of both the US and EU sales charts, proving that fans wanted more of the orange mascot. Recent leaks indicate that Activision may not be quite done with Crash for those on other platforms. While the evidence continues to mount for an Xbox One version of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, a new retail listing page has appeared online seemingly confirming that the remaster is arriving for Microsoft’s console.
Over on base.com, the product page for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has been recently updated to include an Xbox One specific version. Both feature the exact same box art and price. While Activision continues to remain silent on the subject for now, the listing features a December 8, 2017 release date for the Xbox One remaster, a date which has been seen before in other leaks as well.
The retail related rumors really started around two months ago however, as a different retail listing first appeared online which showed off an Xbox One version that also had a planned launch date of December 8. Over on the official Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy website, the buy now section also gave fans an option to select a platform to purchase. However, for users that enabled the display hidden content box option in their browser settings, an Xbox One option appeared as well as a new deluxe option.
While Crash is predominantly remembered as a Sony-specific mascot created by the talented folks at Naughty Dog, this latest title wouldn’t actually be the first time the character appeared on Microsoft’s console. After the deal between Sony and Vivendi Universal ended in 2000, Traveller’s Tales moved in to the development role to create Crash Twinsanity which launched for the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox. Crash of the Titans came a few years later and appeared on almost every available platform including Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, and more.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available now on the PlayStation 4.
