The Crash Bandicoot franchise has been popular ever since its first released on the original PlayStation. After it was announced that the first three titles of the Crash Bandicoot series, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and lastly, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, would be coming out as a remastered collection, there was plenty of gamers assuming it would release on both the Sony and Microsoft platform.
Originally, the Crash Bandicoot series has only been released on the Sony PlayStation platform and following its initial trend, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy which contained the first three Crash Bandicoot titles remastered with enhanced visuals, also launched only on the Sony PlayStation 4.
This has left plenty of gamers bummed that they would not have a chance to pick the video game collection up for the Microsoft Xbox One, one of the direct competitors against Sony. Well, it seems that a hidden option on the official Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy website unlocks a menu to choose a platform outside of the PlayStation 4, though it currently only offers a PlayStation 4 platform option at the moment.
Unfortunately, there is no specific menu available with the Microsoft Xbox One as a platform choice for a purchase, but thanks to a report by Gamerant, knowing that there is an option for platform choice menu may very well be a good indicator that the title will be available on the Xbox One soon if not also releasing on the PC and Nintendo Switch platforms.
Likewise, Activision, publishers behind Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, recently spoke up about the overwhelmingly positive response they had with the remastered collection release. Because of this, Activision made it clear that more remastered content and IPs will be looked at more closely in the near future.
Perhaps because of the positive response of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy could give some motivation for Activision to seek other platforms to release the remastered collection, although there is no official comment on the matter just yet.
For now, gamers who wish to play Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy can do so by picking up a copy of the video game for the Sony PlayStation 4 platform until Activision makes note of upcoming future releases of the collection.
