Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has launched across all platforms, including Switch. To get a better idea as to how each version compares, Digital Foundry has conducted its usual in-depth analysis.

When docked, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy runs at 720p. The resolution drops to 480p when playing in handheld mode.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy reached new formats last week. Interestingly, it’s the fastest selling Switch game released this year. The £30 price tag may play a factor in that.

The Xbox One and Switch versions of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy came in at first and second on the UK charts this week. However, the Switch edition only sold 250 fewer copies.

We have a couple of other tidbits regarding the latest UK sales as well. Mario Tennis Aces’ sales dipped by 53%, though GamesIndustry says that’s “decent performance for a game in its second week on shelves.” Harvest Moon: A Light of Hope, which debuted in the UK just a few days ago, had 78% of its sales on Switch in comparison to 22% on the PlayStation 4.

We’ll likely have a better idea as to how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy holds up on Switch in the near future, but VG Tech states that it runs at 720p when docked and roughly 853×480 in portable mode. When playing in handheld form, the game apparently runs a bit better, though can still occasionally drop below 30 frames per second.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy launches on Switch later this week. Check out the first 15 minutes of footage below.

One interesting point concerns loading times. After Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy originally came out on PlayStation 4, Vicarious Visions looked at the feedback, and has addressed this on Switch. Fans can expect loading time improvements across the various levels.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is just a couple of weeks away from reaching Switch. When it does release, Prima will have an official guide ready to go.

Amazon provides the following overview of the guide:

Activision unveiled the new Future Tense level for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy today. Get a look at some footage below.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 11, 2018 – Just when you thought you mastered all the levels in Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is giving fans another reason to play CrashTM all summer long with the introduction of a brand-new level called “FUTURE TENSE”! On June 29, the Future Tense level will be included as a bonus in the Crash Bandicoot™ 3: Warped game of the Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy.

Developed by Vicarious Visions, Future Tense brings an extra layer of difficulty to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped’s Future world, as players dodge rockets, destroy robots and leap over lasers while ascending a massive futuristic skyscraper. This brand-new level pays homage to the unreleased Waterfall level from the original Crash BandicootTM game. Soon franchise fans (and speed runners) will have something BRAND WUMPING NEW in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy that will challenge even the most skillful Crash players.
