Remakes and Remasters are usually a hit or miss within the video game industry. As of lately however, they’ve been all the rage as it’s been proven more often than not that nostalgia sells, and companies are beginning to see that rather quickly.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is one of those more recent remasters which have been on the more successful end of the scale – even more so than Square’s recent Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which was a remaster of Final Fantasy XII on the PlayStation 2. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy features the first three Crash games all bundled into one, each of which is fully remastered. While I’m sure many people, including myself, would have much more preferred a brand new Crash game; a Remaster turned out to be exactly what Sony needed to re-spark interest in the franchise.
Sony has recently released their monthly list of top selling titles on the PlayStation Store, and Crash fans will likely be pleased to hear that the N. Sane Trilogy is topped at #1 on the chart for PlayStation 4 titles; with other remasters such as God of War III: Remastered, Modern Warfare Remastered, and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, placed at 3rd, 8th, and 11th on the list, respectively.
I don’t know about you all, but while I’ve never been the biggest Crash Bandicoot fan, I’m truly hoping that Sony takes this recent success they’ve been having with the Remastered Trilogy, and at the very least begin thinking about a new Crash title for either the PlayStation 4 or PS Vita.
