Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy currently listed for Switch on Keymailer

Posted on October 16, 2017 by (@tylerlelliott) in General Gaming, News, Switch

Update: The dream is dead, for now anyway. Keymailer’s co-founder says the listing was an error.

Keymailer co-founder here. This was news to me when I saw this thread. I reached out to the management team and apparently this is, sadly, an error on our side. The game was incorrectly tagged when we imported the upcoming releases.

Apologies on behalf of the company for any disappointment on this, as a Switch owner and a fan of Crash Bandicoot, I would have been as excited to play this.

Original: Keymailer is a company that connects YouTube and Twitch content creators to games publishers and developers via review codes. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is currently listed for the Switch on Keymailer’s site. While this is likely an error, this would not be the first time the Crash Bandicoot series has appeared on Nintendo hardware, and there has been some inconsistent information whether the title would be a Sony exclusive.

    A Pc or Xbox version was teased so is a possibility, also there is no “only on Ps4” label…So…

    • mistnik

      That label means nothing. Dragon Quest Builders has that label and yet it’s coming to Switch.

      • Tide

        Playstation Ireland as made sure to clarify that it was coming to playstation first, not exclusively.

        • MajoraMan28

          Just to be sure, that Tweet is refering to Crash or DQB?

          • Tide


          • MagcargoMan

            Oh for a moment I thought they were just taking about Dragon Quest Builders.

    • dathip

      Same with Nioh and Toukiden, Didn’t stop it from coming to the pcmasterrace!!

      • Paddy Alfan

        100gb glory!

  • Ardisan

    Um wut

    • amak11

      Sony doesnt own Crash, Activision owns crash… Activision is well… Activision

      • hi v3.0

        Love the way you said it lmao

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I’m wondering if Universal still has a share in it? Maybe even a little?

  • Dunnington

    That would be awesome and I’m almost 100% sure that it would be worth it for them.

  • Tlink7

    Seems like an error, but it would be nice ofc

    • Angelus

      It is an error.

  • Blake Good

    I want this for the Switch, really badly!

    • Adilson

      What rock are you living under? Switch is getting a surprising amount of 3rd party support and with the sale numbers increasing it will likely get more.

      • JasonBall

        But it’s not many of the games people associate as gamer games, the big AAA 60 dollar games on Xbox and PlayStation.

        • Adilson

          To be honest as of lately Xbox is missing more multis than the Switch.

          • JasonBall

            That’s a stretch

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            lol Xbox ain’t getting Japanese support ever. Switch is. No stretch there at all.

          • JasonBall

            That’s true. I still say it has more big games than Switch. Which may or may not matter, I’m just saying.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Even if they are old ports with lower performance, Switch just got DOOM and Wolfenstein 2. And if those do well in spite of those shortcomings, imagine what that could mean for future third party support.

          • JasonBall

            That’s right, it could get better. I’m agreeing with you.

        • MajoraMan28

          Doom and Wolfenstein II said hi

          • Both of which are late ports.

          • MajoraMan28

            Doesn’t matter, if the games are there, they are part of the library. Also, having them portable is something you won’t find elsewhere.
            Btw, we don’t know how far off Wolfenstein II is, which isn’t even out yet, so its port wouldn’t be that much “late”

          • Hylian Ticipated

            Just like Fifa 18 was a late port. Just like Sonic Mania was and Sonic Forces will be a late port. Wolfenstein II is a new game yet to be released so it coming within 6 months of the others is reaching for straws calling it a late port when essentially multiplats are built on PC and then ported to consoles. So they’re all ports!!

          • Fifa 18 is a reskined port of Fifa 17. Check Digital Foundary.

            Sega almost always supports Nintendo.

          • JasonBall

            Yes, there are a few. I never said they’re weren’t any. I said there weren’t many.

        • Sano

          It’s more than enough, so your contention that it’s not many is both idiotic and irrelevant. Switch doesn’t even *need* any notable degree of 3rd party support to be a success as it’s own fundamental design hook and its wealth of consistently incredible 1st party games not only render it a far superior system to both Xbox and Playstation, both of which absolutely need the 3rd party support to stay afloat unlike Nintendo(especially Xbox). Your comments are just as much a load of idiotic, misguided bull s**t as the thread starter’s. permaleaving

          • JasonBall

            *slow clap*

            Truly, you’ve uncovered my master plan to be an idiot.

            Nothing I said even contradicts with your opinion. You’re arguing with the air. I’m actually agreeing with you.

          • Drybonekoopa85

            I hate this mentality that Nintendo doesn’t “need” third party games to be a good console. The Switch was built for playing video games not just Nintendo games but all kinds of games. I’m picking up every third party game that is coming out this holiday and beyond. I don’t care if it’s late port or not. I’m throwing them into my Switch library.

        • Hylian Ticipated

          Unfortunately, people are arguing against your stupid statement.

          • JasonBall

            I’m sorry, what?

      • Blake Good

        Really, where the hell are games like Undertale, A Hat in Time, and The Disney Afternoon Collection (VC maybe!?)

        • ChuckyGuy98

          On the computer where you can get them. Are you that depended on the VC or are you that f***ing lazy. No wonder why you have the gut that you have.

          • MagcargoMan

            Geez, who peed in your cheerios today?

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Um, I want those on Switch too.

        • Blake Good

          While we are at it guys…… if I can be honest with all of you….. I … well… I like little boys. That is why this was my old profile picture. I am literally getting hard just looking at this just….. oh my god they are so hot!

          • JacksomLOVESNintendo

            Nani the literal frick is this…

          • Blake Good

            I rather admit it to all of you instead of hiding it any longer!

          • JasonBall

            Are you ok?

          • Blake Good

            Yes I am okay you bigot! Why is everyone so weirded out that i like little boys it’s just as normal as being gay. Jeez the world is better without people like you.

          • JasonBall

            No, its not normal. It means you’re a pedophile which is illegal and/or disgusting, and the world is better without YOU. You should be reported.

          • Blake Good

            Shut it. You are just too close minded how beautiful it is to love a younger boy.

          • Blake Good

            It’s normal you bigot. Learn to accept me for who I am!

          • JasonBall

            Ohhh I understand now. You got so sick of that Blake Good guy and how weird he is that you created an impostor account to make even more fun of him and make him look even worse. Well played. It was believable because he’s already so weird your own additions seem just like him.

          • Blake Good

            What are you talking about? I am the real Blake Good! That other guy is some imposter trying to make me look bad. I hope her goes to the 7th layer of he11 for this!

          • JasonBall

            This whole situation is hilarious. You both suck.

          • Blake Good

            No, you suck! PC Principle, although I hate him for beating up Cartman. Should beat you up for not accepting us men who love little boys!

          • JasonBall

            Yeah uh-huh

    • Anon Anonimo


    • Blake Good

      Same. But can you stop it! I am asking nicely this time

  • ronin4life


    On a slightly off-topic note, Having been playing Donkey King Country quite a bit this past week thanks to the SNES Classic Mini, and recently watching a let’s play of Crash N Sane trilogy, I am amazed at just how much Crash took inspiration from Donkey Kong… and the fact that despite owning both as a kid I never noticed it before. Lots of level design and gameplay elements are clearly taken right out of DKC playbook.

    • MagcargoMan

      I’m a big fan of DKC and Crash and I don’t really see the connections. Mind explaining them?

  • BananaJama

    Doubtful, unless Activision are willing to pay Sony royalties.
    Sony may no longer won the rights to Crash Bandicoot, but they still hold many of the design patents from the first three games.

  • YoungTheFish

    … Mario and Crash at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics?

  • Adrian Brown

    I wouldn’t care, but of course the more games come to Switch, the better.

    Cuphead, on the other hand…

    • MajoraMan28

      Cuphead was made with M$’s own money invested in Studio MHDR. There’s no way it would land on the Switch or PS4

      • bugman83

        No it wouldn’t but a sequel is a possibility to land on other platforms.

        • Stuart

          Yes. Microsoft owns the game since it is Microsoft’s money that was invested, but they don’t own the IP. Just like Nintendo with Bayonetta 2.

      • Adrian Brown

        well, MS owns Minecraft and that is released everywhere.

      • Justin McQuillen

        Microsoft has put in-house developed games on Nintendo handhelds multiple times in the past. Minecraft is already on Switch, Wii U, and 3DS even.

  • Διονῦς84

    I’d love to play that on the Switch!

  • Snackster1001

    Please let this happen

  • Princess_Eevee9


  • Ninty Kad

    I don’t know how I’d feel Playing the remake on the Switch

  • Kikiki899

    It’s the first time I’m glad that activision is activision.

  • Roto Prime

    I hope they add Crash Bash to the Nintendo Switch version with single joy con option gameplay fun time with friends mode!

    • Claire Farron

      Nope, will never happen! It´s PlayStation exclusive!

      • Cesar Miyamoto

        Crash is an Activision mascot , is not a playstation exclusive

        • Claire Farron

          It dosen´t matter! Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will not coming on the Nintendo Switch! ^^

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Man, you’re gonna look dumb as heck if it does. :p

          • Gregory Weagle

            That would also imply Activision is not an idiot. I mean; when is Activision finally going to release more than one game on this platform, again?

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Activision loves to port to everything, even Wii U once upon a time. If Crash goes multiplatform, I highly doubt it won’t be on Switch.

          • Claire Farron

            keep dreaming, your salty Nintendrone! ^^

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            lol How is that a Nintendrone comment? You’re the one asserting without any shred of doubt a prediction that could very well be wrong. I’m just pointing out how silly you will look if it comes to pass.

  • Really?? I personally don’t want it and wouldn’t play it, but I’m still surprised.

  • Tegra pokemon

    Oh yea!

  • Stuart

    If that happened,we would have on the same platforms games of:
    -Shovel Knight

    Bring back DK and Megaman and the Switch would be the new ultimate console for mascots.

    • Reggie

      Add Doom Guy to the list.

    • MajoraMan28

      All that is left is FFVII Remake.
      Then Switch would be the unbeatable console. All of the classic characters united in a single platform

      A man can dream…

    • MagcargoMan

      Don’t even imply Yooka and Laylee are on the level of those others.

      • RoadyMike

        Or worms. wtf. If anything, Earthworm Jim would be better instead of generic ones

        • Radish

          I have Earthworm Jim on my SNES Classic. Such a fun game!

  • jimmy

    Although the series started on PlayStation, I would actually prefer to play this on Switch. I hope it happens.

  • Travis Touchdown

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

  • Paddy Alfan

    The equivalent of that bully in elementary school that you hate so much and make your life miserable is now your in law and banging your sister.

  • Coonfoot

    I wouldn’t mind double-dipping with this game if it gets ported for the Switch.
    (my PS4 died after a lightning storm anyway…)

  • Airsh Bornely

    Oh hell yes if so! This was going to be one I’d get if I were to get a PS4. Coming to the Switch would be perfect!

  • Padre

    Why would anyone want these games on Switch? They are really bad, they were really bad back then also.

    • MagcargoMan

      1/10 bait. Made me reply.

  • HvnlyDaze

    Huge if true.

  • Carlos Diaz

    That would be such a burn on Sony if this came to Switch and sold better there than it did on PS4.

  • MagcargoMan

    I mean that one employee accidentally leaked an Xbox version of the game through a screenshot on her portfolio, so I don’t see why it wouldn’t come to Switch as well.

    Also speaking of Crash and Nintendo I think it’d be kinda neat if they remade the two GBA games (not counting Fusion since it was mostly a mini-game collection) in the N. Sane Trilogy’s engine. Most of the level themes from those games were borrowed from 2 and 3 so they could easily recycle a lot of assets.

  • Angelus

    This was disproven on Reddit. It was an error.

  • Hylian Ticipated

    Of course it’s a mistake. Releasing that on anything is a mistake.

  • R.Z.

    That was too smart a move from Activision to be true.

  • 30011887

    I will keep hoping for a Pc version 🙂
