The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has been nothing short of a critical and commercial success since it was released on the PlayStation 4 a month ago. Now, if a hidden option on the remaster’s official website is to be believed, Xbox One fans may soon be able to enjoy the trilogy.
Over on the official Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy website, the current “Buy Now” section gives fans the option to select their country of choice to purchase the game. However, if the “display hidden content box” in the browser settings is selected, two additional options are revealed on the website. The first – and most interesting – option offers players the choice of platform aside from PS4, heavily suggesting that the Xbox One is available to choose from, while the other option offers up the choice between a standard and presumably a deluxe packaging of the compilation.
This isn’t the first piece of evidence suggesting that the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be heading to Xbox One. Just a month ago, Hungarian retailer SuperGamer listed the compilation on its website as having a release date on Xbox One, while Vicarious Visions artist Kara Zisa just recently published some Crash artwork suggesting that user interface work was done for Xbox One controls.
The two hidden purchasing options on the Crash website has only fueled more speculation that the trilogy is coming to Xbox One, but given lack of confirmation from Activision on the matter, it is best to take this information with a grain of salt for now until an official announcement is issued.
Should the compilation indeed come to Microsoft’s console, it certainly wouldn’t be a bad business decision. The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy managed to top PS4 sales charts for the month of July, and taking into account the respectable sales base of the Xbox One, it is certainly possible for the compilation to perform just as well commercially on Microsoft’s console as it did on PS4.
It remains to be seen whether the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will indeed make it to the Xbox One. However, seeing as how the compilation has managed to perform exceedingly well on just the PS4, perhaps an Xbox release isn’t too far-fetched given the sales potential on the Microsoft platform and the positive sales forecast of the upcoming Xbox One X.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is out now for PS4.
