Developer Vicarious Visions’ and publisher Activision have released a graphical comparison video, comparing the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy to the original series, or rather comparing the remastered version of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back to the original, 1997 PlayStation version.
The new footage shows original vs. remaster footage of one of the chase sequences in Crash 2, specifically one of the bear chase sequences. As you can see in the video, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy almost looks like an entirely different game when compared alongside the originals. Yet, all the charm and Crashness is also there.
The video also simply really drives home that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is not just a remaster of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, but a “remaster plus” as Vicarious Visions has put it. You can read more about how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is not just your average remastering, here. Or you can see how drastically it has been upgraded for yourself via the new video at the bottom of the article.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is set to release for PS4 on June 30, 2017 for $39.99 USD. Below, you can check out the new gameplay footage.
