SEGA to publish former Sony exclusive Crash Bandicoot on Nintendo Switch in Japan

Giving a serious shock to all the ’90s kids, Sega will be releasing the Nintendo Crash Bandicoot in Japan. Isn’t that what makes your eyes wide open? Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was released in the West last year, and as expected, has dominated the charts.

Interestingly though, it is yet to be released in Japan. Sega is expected to make the launch on 18th October in Japan with the added bonus feature that is future tense. Now it will be really worth seeing, how the game scores there. Even if you love playing Draftstars for Android, we are sure you would like to see what Sega has to offer here.

The Nintendo Series, it might be remembered, was exclusive to the Sony’s Play Stations. In the 90s, when the video games were still new, these companies had stiff competition with each other. Coming back to the release, it is not clear for now if both the Xbox version and PC version will be released.

Both versions are equally popular in the countries where the game is already released. But in Japan, the case can be different. Xbox is yet to gain popularity there. So, from the business point of view, it seems likely that only PC version will be released.

The Top Things to Love as a 90’s Kid

It seems Sega has been trying to regain its lost glory that it once enjoyed in the gaming world back in the 1990’s. It’s why the company is trying to focus on the games that had worked before, and trying to regain market share.

Fortunately, that does work out for you as we are sure you would love some of the remastered games from yesteryear by Sega.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane trilogy made a comeback last year on PS4. If you are a 90s kid, you do remember that this game was what made PSX more fun. With the release news hitting the channels, as expected, all the old players rushed to grab their PS4. But the best news was that the game was being released on other platforms too.

This really took the calm away from people. No need to have PS4 when you have Xbox One, PC and Nintendo switch. It was because of this wide range of availability that the game became a hit as soon as it hit the stores. With its upgraded features and better visuals, it is a treat to the eyes. Not only that, the newer version successfully managed to keep the original theme. You can float in nostalgia while battling the modern challenges.

In the newly added features, you will find unified checkpoints, remastered audio and cutscenes, pause menus, and time trials. It was due to this that it sold over 2.5 million copies by September. It was released in June. Just the four-month reception proves the popularity of the game. The game even won the best remake/remaster at IGN 2017. Japan is eagerly waiting to get this iconic game among its players.
