The release date for Crash Bandicoot Remastered PS4 has been leaked online. Gaming experts are still split over the validity of the information.
At E3 2016, fans of the anthropomorphic marsupial were pleasantly surprised when Activision announced that Crash will be a playable character in Skylanders: Imaginators. The upcoming toys-to-life video game will hit shelves this Sunday, October 16.
Activision also stated that remastered PS4 versions of the first three Crash Bandicoot games will release in 2017. Recently, an online retailer from Finland known as VPD.fi. unofficially revealed the exact release date.
According to site’s product listing for Crash Bandicoot Remastered PS4, the game bundle will be available starting February 28, 2017. It will include remastered versions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped.
James Wright of Daily Star believes that the said release date is merely a placeholder date. He noted that PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn will also launch on February 28, 2017.
Highly-anticipated titles almost never release on the same day. It would be a bad marketing move if they did. Considering the hype surrounding their upcoming titles, Activision and Sony would surely want to have a release date all to themselves.
For now, Crash Bandicoot aficionados will just have to wait and see for future developments. More details will be unearthed as 2017 approaches.
Mobile & Apps expect Crash Bandicoot Remastered PS4 to retain the core gameplay mechanics of the first three Crash Bandicoot games. After “Crash Bandicoot: Warped,” the series took a turn for the worst.
Succeeding titles featured better graphics and in-game exploration, but they still failed to garner high reviews. This was because of the revamped free-roam system that wasn’t as enjoyable as in past iterations.
