Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, featuring remastered editions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped, will launch for PS4 on June 30, Activision and developer Vicarious Visions have announced.
"This is a AAA remaster," says game director Dan Tanguay. "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!"
Art lead Dustin King explains how the games have been updated to modern standards.
"The addition of real-time lighting in a PBR (Physically Based Rendering) engine, along with an increase in texture size, can sometimes make our environments look different than the originals," he explains.
"Generally, while we strive to recreate each level so it looks and feels like the original, we also want to make sure that environments are fun, colourful, and read well in the fast-paced action with the addition of the new technology we are using.
The games also boast analogue stick support, a unified save and checkpoint system, improved bonus levels, time trials plus a fully remastered soundtrack and newly recorded dialogue.
