Activision just released the release date information for the remake of the original trilogy of Crash Bandicoot releasing exclusively on PS4.
This remastered version titled Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is going to release on June 30th 2017. The three games releasing on this remaster are:
- Crash Bandicoot
- Crash Bandicoot: Cortex Strikes Back
- Crash Bandicoot: Warped
The games will use the original audio, but will have visual enhancements as seen in the screenshots seen below. There will be a few new features to be added in such time trials, unified checkpoints and autosaving.
Why did you remake the soundtrack compositions, instead of reusing the originals?
We are recreating the original compositions to match the high-definition visuals and the updated look and feel of the game. The original music was brilliantly composed and arranged to get the most out of the memory and processing power of the original PlayStation. With much expanded resources, we are able to really improve sound quality and fidelity, while staying faithful to the original compositions.

Remaster or remake? It’s a remake isn’t it? It’s totally a remake? Please settle this.
This is a AAA remaster. We’re giving this the love and attention to detail that we pay to all of our AAA games. We’re building it using the original level geometry so that it plays as close to the original as possible. We’ve also referred to this as a remaster plus, as we are adding new features that we think the fans are going to love!
