Sony doesn't own Crash anymore, just in case you forgot.
By Robert Marrujo:: Crash Bandicoot was once Sony's answer to Super Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. Mascots were all the rage back in the '80s and '90s console wars, so when Sony threw its hat into the ring with the launch of PlayStation, the electronics giant felt that it had to keep up with the Joneses and produce a mascot of its own. Not that Crash was a mere coattail chaser, as developer Naughty Dog did an exceptional job of churning out three delightful platformers starring the anthropomorphic marsupial.
Those three PlayStation games were recently remastered in the lovely Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on PlayStation 4. The gameplay and level design was all left virtually intact for the overhaul, but given a major graphical update in order to bring the visuals up to modern day standards. It was a nice way of honoring the legacy of the original PlayStation, but something that fans might not be remembering is that Activision, not Sony, is the owner of Crash's rights, these days.
As such, a recent listing on the Keymailer (a site dedicated to disseminating game review codes) website indicates that N. Sane Trilogy might finally be going multiplatform. The listing in question sites Nintendo Switch as one of the consoles the game might be potentially appearing on. Considering marketing seemed to indicate that PS4 would be the "first" system the game would be landing on, it's not out of the question that N. Sane Trilogy could wind up on Switch, Xbox One, or whichever platform Activision sees fit to call the game home.
