Earlier this week, an interview in Licensing Source Book Europe with GB eye, a European supplier of licensed merchandise, stated that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was coming to Switch this year. It also made mention of a brand-new Crash game in 2019. It was surprising to see this info let loose in a random interview, as Activision hasn't made a peep about any of this. Now it looks like the info might have gotten out before Activision wanted it to.
The online version of the interview has now been edited, and all mentions of Crash on Switch, as well as the new game in 2019, have been removed. No reason for the retraction was given, and no comment from Activision was made. I'm thinking this doubly confirms the news. If it was just incorrect info, Activision would have released a statement. Instead they remain quiet, and the blurb disappears.
RUMOR of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy coming to Switch pops up again, as well as a brand-new Crash game
Here we go again, boys and girls. Round two on this rumor, but this time around we have some more substantial evidence.
Max Arguile, Licensing Manager of GB Eye, a licensed merchandising company in Europe, has an interview in the latest "Licensing Source Book Europe" from DHX Brands. In the interview, Arguile flat-out says that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is coming to Switch in 2018, and also makes mention of a brand-new Crash game in 2019.
I mean it doesn't get anymore cut and dry than that. No mincing of words or anything like that. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy coming to Switch, and another new game in 2019. As a fan of Crash from day one, I'm certainly down with all of this!
Random Time! - Playing Guitar Hero III's "Through the Fire and Flames" perfectly while blindfolded...and in expert mode
I've never even come close to passing this song on normal difficulty, and now we have someone blowing through it on expert difficulty while blindfolded. Well, guess I'm never going back to Guitar Hero!
This blurb comes from Nintendo's press release concerning Switch record sales, which we posted earlier today...
Fans can also expect continued support from major publishers such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, SEGA, Take 2 and Bethesda, plus a growing catalog of quality content from indie developers.
As far are EA goes, this could mean one of two things. Nintendo could be talking about Fe, which is being published by EA. They could also be talking about more support than what's announced, which would be new info.
When it comes to Activision, that's definitely a new bit of info. We haven't seen anything on Switch from Activision outside of Skylanders. Wonder what the company is bringing Switch's way!
I mean, this is an absolutely insane deal. If you have a Wii U and haven't played Skylanders Superchargers, I can tell you that it's 100% worth $2. Plus you get that fancy Donkey Kong Skylander/amiibo!
UPDATE - As we speculated, it turned out to be an error.
Keymailer co-founder here. This was news to me when I saw this thread. I reached out to the management team and apparently this is, sadly, an error on our side. The game was incorrectly tagged when we imported the upcoming releases. Apologies on behalf of the company for any disappointment on this, as a Switch owner and a fan of Crash Bandicoot, I would have been as excited to play this.
Have you ever heard of Keymailer? I didn't know a thing about it until about 5 mins ago. Let's give the quick-and-dirty breakdown of what it is.
Keymailer is a one-stop-shop for content creators to get game keys directly from publishers and developers, plus it’s a bulletproof way proving who you are without laying yourself wide open to spamming.
In other words, a way for press/creators to get games. Why are we talking about this on here? Well it turns out the site has a listing for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on Switch. Now we're not quite sure where that info comes from, whether it's Keymailer typing in info themselves, or Keymailer updating their database when publishers reach out with news. It's a very slight hope of something, but let's hope it's true.
Spyro, Stealth Elf and Eruptor return for a new action-packed season of SkylandersTM Academy as they train under the watchful eye of Master Eon and travel the vast Skylands universe protecting it from evil-doers.
Yes, children...there was a time when the Tony Hawk games were not only good, but great. Gamers looked forward to each release, as they knew they'd be getting a quality experience. For years everything seemed fantastic, and then Tony Hawk's Underground was revealed.
Fans were worried it was too different from previous entries. It was going to mess up a tried-and-true formula. It was trying to do too much. Turns out those fears were unwarranted, as Tony Hawk's Underground sits as one of the best entries in the franchise.
If you want a look into how the game came together, you can hit up the link below for an exhaustive 4-part feature jam-packed with dev team interviews. There's so much insight into the project, and some of it is quite surprising!
Coming from a Reddit AMA with Sledgehammer Games...
Reddit user ThePCGamingNoob: Yes or no? Is Call Of Duty WWII coming to Nintendo Switch?
Sledgehammer Games: No.
I mean, you can't get anymore clear-cut than that. It's a direct answer, nothing wishy-washy about it. I'd say it doesn't get any more definitive than that.
