Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy launched last month with a great critical reception from the critics and players despite it being harder than the original. Now, publisher Activision has shared some interesting news about the game. According to Activision, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was the top-selling physical console game worldwide in the month of June.
What makes it so interesting is that how quickly the game made it to the top after release as the game launched on June 30, 2017, giving it only two days on store shelves to make it to the No. 1 spot. This is according to the data from Activision Blizzard’s own internal estimates and other analytic groups.
Also, it is important to mention that there were not any other major releases in the month of June but, nonetheless it is an impressive accomplishment. Also, the game has consistently topped the UK charts ever since its launch.
In related news, Activision has left the door open for more Crash Bandicoot or even the launch of N.Sane Trilogy on Xbox One and PC. Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said that the company is seeing a lot of passion for Crash Bandicoot among the gaming community.
We are experimenting with Crash. We know there’s a vocal fanbase that wanted that to come back. But you never know if that is emblematic of a larger audience or just this niche, nostalgia-based community. So far, we are seeing some real passion for it, so that could lead to other things.
Also, Naughty Dog is the original developer of Crash Bandicoot games and the studio has been very impressed by N.Sane Trilogy. According to the game producer, Kara Massie, the development team on N.Sane Trilogy received an overwhelmingly positive review from Naughty Dog.
Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is a compilation of the first three games developed by Vicarious Visions exclusively for PlayStation 4.
