Retailer commissions exclusive Aku-Aku case
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy's special edition has leaked – except it hasn't. Once again the games media finds itself unable to perform even the slightest atom of research, as the pictured Aku-Aku case spotted at Italian retailer Show Game is something that the store has commissioned itself...
Spin to win
Sony has revealed that if you pre-order Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on the PlayStation Store, you'll nab yourself the 'Sunset Vista Pack', which features a bonus dynamic theme and avatar set. The theme consists of our furry hero jogging through a selection of stages from the remake, complete with some suitably bouncy background...
Activision's slowly pumping out plenty of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gameplay footage, and it tends to look better with each new clip. This video focuses on the original's fifth level Upstream, and delves into some of the visual tells Vicarious Visions has implemented to help make the stage's platforming that bit more intuitive...
Here's an activity for your whole family to enjoy this Easter weekend: hit up your local games retailer and have a play on Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for the PlayStation 4. Word on the street is that Sony's pushed out an update to retail kiosks this week, adding a demo of the remake to machines. Obviously your mileage will vary, but...
There were some complaints when the gameplay was first revealed at PSX 2016 last year that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy looked a little flat and washed out, but the presentation has come a long way since then. It looks like Vicarious Visions has been busy tweaking the title's lighting, colouring, and even textures as the 32-bit love-in...
Crash Bandicoot is one of the most animated protagonists in games – it's part of the reason we all love him so much. And one of the best things about upcoming PlayStation 4 remaster N. Sane Trilogy is that it appears to have captured the irreverent hero's mannerisms for a brand new generation. But now Activision's giving you the...
Champing at the bit for more Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy gameplay? Of course you are, you Wumpa fruit loving lot! Sony's uploaded some brand new footage from Crash Bandicoot 2's 'Hang Eight' stage – and yes, it includes the hidden crystal and bonus level. Watch on below.
We told you so
For months, we've been telling people to be wary of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy supposedly being exclusive to the PlayStation 4. Yes, it was announced at Sony's E3 press conference, and yes, Crash is obviously a classic PlayStation character, but the remade trilogy is being published by Activision - the company that currently...
Can't stop the 'Coot
We've never shied away from the fact that Crash Bandicoot is a big performer here at Push Square; the fact that we're bothering to write this article at all is a testament to that. But we thought it was interesting just how thirsty the market appears to be for the marsupial, with N. Sane Trilogy currently second in Amazon UK's
Crashtastic or Crash and burn?
In case you missed yesterday's news, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy now has a confirmed release date; it's set to launch for PlayStation 4 on the 30th June. Now that we know when the remade package is coming, though, we've started questioning just how excited we are for the return of everyone's favourite furry mascot...
Crash is heading home baby, and Activision's just revealed when we can expect him to come spinning back into our lives. As teased yesterday by the publisher, it's gone ahead and announced the release date for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy; it'll be launching for PlayStation 4 on the 30th June. N. Sane Trilogy includes the first...
Whoa, this came out of nowhere didn't it? Activision's taken to Twitter in order to tease a release date for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PlayStation 4 - and the best part is that it's being revealed tomorrow. The tease itself features a three second looped video, which shows our furry friend pulling a dumb face beneath six...
In a year that's so flush with PlayStation 4 games that it's honestly becoming difficult to keep up, you may be forgiven for forgetting that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is still on track for release this year. But just to remind you, Activision has deployed a new batch of screenshots, this time centring on the second game in the series,...
It's not getting brandished around quite like The Last of Us: Part II or Horizon: Zero Dawn, but make no mistake, Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy is going to be a big seller on the PlayStation 4. And with that in mind, we figured that we'd put together a video previewing the forthcoming compilation. This clip outlines everything that...
Taken for a spin
We've all seen the announcement trailer, but now it's time for some proper gameplay clips of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. PlayStation's published a four minute video for the upcoming remastered collection, and it's made up of nothing but our favourite bandicoot smashing through crates and precariously leaping over hazards. Oh...
A generational leap, you might say
We already know that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy looks great. When the PlayStation 4 package was shown off during the PlayStation Experience last week, it actually looked way better than we ever thought it would - and that's because developer Vicarious Visions is rebuilding most of it from the ground up...
A faithful reproduction of a classic
At the beginning of this year, Sony reinvigorated the Ratchet & Clank franchise with the surprisingly excellent PlayStation 4 remake of the first Ratchet & Clank (and a rather unfortunate feature film). That Ratchet & Clank remake proved that there was a high demand for re-imagined old games, and it...
Spin to win
Having appeared at Sony's PlayStation Experience 2016 showcase over the weekend, it's safe to say that one of PlayStation's original mascots is back with a bang. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy looked even better than we had hoped it would in its very first gameplay trailer, which prompted us to say that the current-gen package looks...
N. Sane Trilogy gets first gameplay trailer
Crash Bandicoot is back, baby, and he looks... well, he looks better than ever, to be honest. Sony unveiled the first gameplay trailer for the remastered original trilogy of Crash titles at its PlayStation Experience 2016 press conference, and from where we're sitting, they look more like remakes than...
We all collectively rolled our eyes when Crash Bandicoot was confirmed for Skylanders: Imaginators – after all, we all know how Activision treated fellow PlayStation favourite Spyro when this series started. But it looks like it's learned its lesson this time around: the Thumpin' Wumpa Island level that will appear as a timed...
One of Activision's own studios
Crash Bandicoot is on the cusp of his big comeback moment, courtesy of the Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Remastered set for the PlayStation 4. The game – which was announced at E3 2016 and will feature souped-up versions of all three original PSone titles – will be developed by Vicarious Visions, one of Activision's...
Crash is almost back, kinda
Crash Bandicoot will return in 2017, Sony has confirmed. The furry hero doesn't have a new game coming any time soon - boo! - but his first three original PlayStation outings are being remastered for PS4. We're not sure how you remaster a bunch of PSone games, but we're reasonably excited to replay those gems all the...
And yes, he's in Skylanders
If you've read this particular author's Push Square bio under the staff page, you would know that we've been waiting for Crash Bandicoot to return in true form for over a decade. Well, we can say that this dream has been, er, sort of realized. Our favorite marsupial will be gracing the PlayStation 4, but will do so in a...
Crushing disappointment, readers – crushing. It looks like all of the Crash Bandicoot teasing is going to come down to this: a PlayStation 4 version of Skylanders: Imaginators including the iconic character. We reported earlier in the week that a special edition featuring the 'Coot had been spotted on a Singaporean website, but we didn't...
Worse than Shawn Layden's shirt
Not like this – please, not like this! While your humble host was warring with faulty pre-E3 2016 hardware, a Singapore-based retailer named Qisahn has been busy listing a PlayStation 4 exclusive version of Skylanders: Imaginators – which will supposedly include Crash Bandicoot. As the Kaiser Chiefs once sang,...
By our reckoning, the three year Crash Bandicoot conversation is about to come to a conclusion, and this saga can end one of two ways: the iconic PSone protagonist has been broken out of his Activision penitentiary – or, well, he hasn't. Whichever side of the 90s baditude camp you currently reside, there's no question that the...
But it proves nothing
An early E3 2016 leak or a retailer responding to rumours? This could be a case of both, in all honesty. While there's real reason to believe that something is going on with the Crash Bandicoot brand, the fact that Swiss retailer Alcom has listed a new entry for the PlayStation 4 is not evidence of anything at all – the...
Good old Jim Ryan
We sincerely hope that Crash Bandicoot puts in appearance during Sony's E3 2016 press conference, because we're getting a bit sick of writing these filler stories. In the latest issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine, there's an interview with Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe president Jim Ryan, and in it, the always...
There's been no shortage of Crash Bandicoot craziness over the past couple of years, but we get the distinct impression that things are about to heat up on Wumpa Island. According to a NeoGAF post, Lex Lang – who voiced Dr. Neo Cortex in the more recent Crash titles – has been asked to "resurrect" a "doctor" from a game gone by. We can't...
Add another to the list
Y'know the saying 'cock tease'? We can definitely see a future where the same definition is attributed to the phrase 'Crash tease'. Sony either knows something, or it's being utterly reckless at this point, as now PlayStation Latin America has pumped out a picture of the iconic platforming badass. It attached the hashtag #TBT...
Aku Aku approves
We've laid our eyes on many a customised console over the years, but every now and again, you spy a machine that really goes above and beyond what you expect. With mod jobs being a hot topic these days, we're always on the lookout for some cool designs, and we reckon that this Crash Bandicoot inspired PlayStation 2 is absolutely...
There's too much smoke now surely? Hot on the heels of Shawn Layden's t-shirt tease and all of the social media hints, NECA Toys' Randy Falk has suggested that Sony's bringing Crash Bandicoot back. Speaking at the New York Toy Fa
Here we go again
At what point does smoke signal a fire? Crash Bandicoot has been hinted heavily for the PlayStation 4 ever since the start of the generation, and while Shawn Layden's shirt troll was the biggest tease yet, the platform holder is showing no signs of stopping this trend. It's the social media team of PlaySt
Boo this man
Not like this, Shawn Layden! We were starting to really like SCEA's new president, but you absolutely can't walk on stage at a PlayStation press conference wearing a Crash Bandicoot t-shirt if you're not going to… Y'know, at least announce that the orange furred favourite is making a comeback. Our live chat was absolutely packed...
It'd look a lot like this
It's nice to see the Rockstar editor being put to good use. Over on YouTube, user Pinkman has created a gritty Crash Bandicoot reboot using Grand Theft Auto V. In the clip, we see the 'coot smashing some human crates in order to grab some Wumpa Fruit, before indulging in some Crash Team Racing-esque high speed pursuits. Thi
You can't have your cake and eat it
Look at that cake. Just look at the bloody thing. Celebrating PlayStation's 20th anniversary in Europe, Sony's had the delightful desert whipped up in celebration - but did it really have to sit Crash Bandicoot on top of the edible consoles? PlayStation's original orange mascot is now owned by Activision, but...
"Play our game and tell your friends so we'll make lots of loot"
Crash Bandicoot turned out to be one of the biggest brands of the 90s, but Universal Interactive Studios had even bigger plans for the property before Sony licensed it for its legendary PSone platforming trilogy. During the early days of development, the publisher was knocking around...
Discussions definitely took place
Well, this would have been a mind-melting moment, wouldn't it? Speaking as part of an interview with A.V. Club, Bruce Straley has hinted that Naughty Dog wanted to put Crash Bandicoot into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The senior employee, who's serving as the game director on the forthcoming PlayStation 4...
We wished it was
This time every year the Internet goes stir crazy over rumours that make very little logical sense. We saw glimpses of that earlier in the week with Shenmue, but this Crash Bandicoot image is even worse. Once again, it revolves around a fuzzy photograph of a projector screen featuring everyone's favourite Converse-wearing rodent...
At one time, Crash Bandicoot was the face of the PlayStation brand, but through licensing headaches and the creation of other characters, the spunky star hasn’t quite gone on to fill the role of Nintendo’s Mario or Microsoft’s Master Chief. However, the hero’s titular game remains a signature PlayStation classic that served...
No tribal tattoos, ok?
Sony seems ready to restart the Crash Bandicoot cycle all over again, as group president Andrew House has admitted in an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph that the platform holder’s open to bringing back old mascots such as the Naughty Dog spinster. There were
If the rampant speculation that Sony had reacquired the dormant Crash Bandicoot franchise earlier in the year got your hopes up, then we can only apologise. For a split-second, the stars seemed to align, and we genuinely believed that the mascot had come home. Then, of course, Activi
