Activision today released new gameplay footage for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, a compilation pack that includes updated versions of the first three games in the series.
This newest gameplay video shows off the first game’s fifth level, Upstream, which sees Crash making his way up a river. As you’ll see, new features have been added, including a more advanced water system that shows ripples in the water as a lillypad is about to sink, providing a cue for the player for when to jump. The video also spotlights the game’s bonus missions. Take a look (via DualShockers):
The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy includes three old-school Crash games: Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. They were all originally made by Naughty Dog, while Activision’s Vicarious Visions is making the PlayStation 4 game.
Vicarious Visions used the original games’ level geometry, but the gameplay is rebuilt from scratch. Some new features for the updated versions include a unified checkpoint and save system (including manual and auto-saving), as well as a unified menu system. There will also time trials available for each game.
The collection launches for PlayStation 4 on June 30, though it may not be exclusive to Sony’s console. The original three games included in the pack, plus racing title Crash Team Racing and party game Crash Bash, were all exclusive to PlayStation in their original releases, but subsequent games in the series have appeared on multiple platforms.
