Here's a pretty good comparison of the new intro and the old one. Personally I think this new one did everything better, although hearing N.Brio's new voice and not instantly thinking of the Brain takes some time to get used to.

Also, interesting detail here: in the original, Cortex's model just teleports out of the castle when Crash is falling. He's only there for a few frames though.



But I did notice this in the new one, so there you go. A nice little throwback

While old Cotex was more menacing, Lang aboslutely nailed the comedy in the later Crash games so I'm fine with the change.

Tawna actually doing something in the intro is pretty cool. Tis a shame we won't be seeing her in the other two games.

I think it's better, the gargled mess tht are the cortex and brio voices in crash 1 can go.

I feel like they did play Brio a little too stupid/demented. But the intent seemed the same. I'm just worried for his portrayal in Crash 2 for the Gem collecting. Despite being a stuttering Igor, he played an intelligent foil to Cortex in the second game.

Wait what? Is this a brief flash of assets before the wall loads in? How'd you even catch that lol.

I dunno, Old Cortex just sounded generic, and too much like Old Brio for my taste. Lang is essentially just going for Brown's Cortex, AKA the best one. I feel his portrayal has a bit of menace to it.

I think this is zoomed in on a specific spot in the intro, but it's showing there's a bump where Cortex accidentally loads in the original.

Agreed. Clancy Brown's Cortex is so superior that I'd actually forgotten how generic the original Crash 1 Cortex sounded.

It's pretty similar to Vegeta's English voice change in DBZ: Brian Drummond was the original, but Chris Sabat is the GOAT.

That laugh and "You FOOL!" still have me shook to this day

on the other hand, imagine this opening if they get Nolan North back for N. Gin

Crash Bandicoot PS4 Remake vs PS1 Graphics Comparison


Looks very solid both graphically and performance wise so far! But have Vicarious Visions said anything regarding the final framerate? I know Crash originally was a 30fps game and keeping it that way is great for purists when it comes to timing jumps etc, but there should at least be an option for 60fps (I assume 60fps is possible being how the games got locked camera angles and have linear levels.)

I grew up on this series, so Crash Bandicoot is very dear to me.

The last one I played was Wrath of Cortex, and I actually enjoyed it despite the long loading times. But from there I fell off, and I regret having not tried out Crash Twinsanity.

Is the only way to play the old games to find the physical copies used somewhere for the different consoles?

Not sure if you guys have seen this already but in this video we can see yet another new gem animation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyw0r_GcdZM

So far we have
-Burp
-Out of his ass back pocket
-Hits head to get it out of his ear

Since there are so many gems in the game, I assume there will be plenty more animations for them.

It looks like this account just ripped Polygon's footage and reuploaded it. You can see their logo at 2:02 in the video.

I really hope the box art is the same as Crash Bandicoot 1. (with the new graphics ofc).

What is the estimate for when this will be released? I've got a bad feeling it'll be late 2017 :(

Just a heads up, Amazon.com put up their preorder finally, and it lists the game as "Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy - Standard Edition" -- so seems like we'll be getting a Special/Collector's Edition of some kind.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order on PSN then. I'll hold off and see if there is a collector's edition and decide if it's worth the money.

Really hope we get a different box art. I hope they go for something like the first three box arts.

The official website has that image file named as "standard-boxart-ps4", so I think maybe the cat's out of the bag at this point.
I like this box art.

I rarely ever buy special editions, they take up way too much space...but I have to get this one!! I'm hoping we don't get one release for the whole Europe though, I don't want an ugly USK logo on mine!

They need a reversible cover with a spoof of this on it



Where's that cool would-be Crash Landed cover art at?

EDIT: Found it

Tawna showing better personality in the remake in two seconds than she has for all of her existence.

Damn,that's the one negative thing about this port. And it's never coming to PC either :-(

The games are really slow paced anyway so doubt you'll notice the framerate, especially since they are rock solid 30fps.

If they hit 60fps for the final game then that's freaking great but 30fps is hardly a deal breaker.

In other news, watching some of the videos in this thread, I noticed the game demo shared to the media, etc, has at the very least, two builds.
