The successful release of the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has lit a fire in the hearts of Spyro fans, who hope the adventure series will be Activision's next remaster.
It seems what was once considered a pipe dream could be a step closer to actually happening.
Spyro the Dragon is a platformer that casts players in the role of Spyro, a young, purple dragon who is accompanied on his journeys by a dragonfly called Sparx. Here's a trailer for the first game in the series, released for the PS1 in 1998.
Last Friday saw Nintendo release a triple salvo of 3DS titles in the UK: Miitopia, Hey! Pikmin and Dr. Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training. The trio of games fared fair to poorly.
Nintendo Switch exclusive Splatoon 2 has had to settle for second place in the UK chart, behind the resurgent Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy.
After spending an hour in a profanity-driven rage, it's become clear why Naughty Dog removed the level Stormy Ascent from the original Crash Bandicoot.
The original 1996 Crash Bandicoot had a level in it so hard that developer Naughty Dog deemed it too difficult for human consumption. That level, Stormy Ascent, has finally been unearthed and released as free DLC to Vicarious Visions' recent remake Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy.
Crash Bandicoot developer Vicarious Visions has confirmed the remaster is harder than the original after fans spent the past three weeks trying to work out why it feels different to play.
A few days after the game came out, Twitch streamer DingDongVG created a video providing a visual demonstration of an apparent problem with the jumping in Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. The footage suggested Crash's jumping arc was sped up, which means he lands slightly quicker than in the original.
Writing in a blog post Kevin Kelly, editorial manager of Activision, said jumping in the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is not the same as in the original, particularly in the first game of the series. It turns out even though the developer used Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped as a starting point, it ended up individually tuning each game's jumping mechanisms.
Sony has the most appealing bargain this morning in Amazon's Prime Day sale - a PlayStation 4, spare controller, plus copies of megahits Overwatch and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy all for £180.
The impressive sales success of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy continues - it's now secured two weeks at number one in the UK chart.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy - the remaster of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped - is seemingly coming to Xbox One if Hungarian retailer SuperGamer is to be believed.
Fidget spinners were SO last week, right? Well apparently GameStop are still trying to ride the hype wave. From Friday, Gamestop Ireland are giving away a free fidget spinner to those who purchase the Crash Bandicoot N'Sane Trilogy, in return for trading in any game. Yeah, really.
Activision has released new footage of its upcoming Vicarious Visions-developed Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy - the remastering of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped - will launch on 30th June for PS4.
Developer Vicarious Visions (of Skylanders fame, also working on the next Destiny) has massively rehauled the games' graphics and sound effects for something that looks drastically better than the 90s originals, as can be seen in the following comparison video.
"This is a AAA remaster. We're giving this the love and attention to detail that we pay to all of our AAA games," said game director Dan Tanguay on the PlayStation Blog. "We're building it using the original level geometry so that it plays as close to the original as possible. We've also referred to this as a remaster plus, as we are adding new features that we think the fans are going to love!"
