A U.K. retailer has possibly leaked the release date of “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” for the Xbox One console.

While Vicarious Visions and Activision’s “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” platform video game has already become available for purchase for the PlayStation 4 console, there’s no official word yet on when it is heading to Microsoft’s Xbox One gaming machine. However, it appears a U.K. retailer has already leaked the game’s release date for the latter console.

Xbox One Release Date

On Monday, published the product page for “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” on its website. The U.K.-based company’s product page revealed that the platform game is set for release on Dec. 8, 2017, which is just a little more than five months from now. The page also revealed that the retail price of the game is £34.99 (U.S.$45.45), but the item has been discounted by £5, so it is up for preorder for only £29.22 (U.S.$38.96).

It isn’t known yet if the date leaked by is the official release date of “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy,” but it’s not too far-fetched to say that this could be it. Previously, it was believed that the remastered version of the first three “Crash Bandicoot” games is going to be a PS4-exclusive title only. The speculation arose after PlayStation Ireland announced on Twitter that the game is launching on June 30, 2017, and it will come to the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro first. Twinfinite claims the tweet appears to suggest that the remaster will be a timed exclusive for the two consoles first.

Despite the uncertainty on whether the game will make it to the Xbox One or not, many are hopeful that it will be released for the Xbox One and even for the PC and Nintendo Switch platforms. The leaked release date already seems legit though, with Express reporting that the game is expected to arrive in time for Christmas. Furthermore, the publication maintained that there appears to be no reason for Activision to not bring the remaster to the Xbox One console.

“Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” Explained

The upcoming “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy” is composed of the remastered version of the first three games from the very successful series. Thus, players are getting “Crash Bandicoot,” “Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Again” and “Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped” when they buy the new game.

The official description for the remaster reads: “Your favorite marsupial, Crash Bandicoot, is back and he’s enhanced, entranced & ready-to-dance! Now you can experience Crash Bandicoot like never before in fully-remastered and graphical glory.”

“Spyro The Dragon” Remaster?

Aside from “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy,” it appears fans of the classics can also expect a revival of “Spyro the Dragon” game after an easter egg for the latter was uncovered by YouTuber ThornsOfSerenity. After “Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy“ hit the stores last Friday, the YouTuber attempted to access a hidden feature that was previously found in “Crash Bandicoot: Warped.”

Back in the day, entering the combination of “up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right and square” on the title screen of the original “Crash Bandicoot: Warped” would play a demo for “Spyro the Dragon.” In the new “Trilogy” remaster, performing this while “Crash Bandicoot: Warped” is selected would remove the highlight on the New Game/Continue options—something that does not happen when “Crash” or “Crash 2” is selected.

According to, this could simply mean that developer Vicarious Visions could be hinting at something. That something is believed to be either the remaster of “Spyro the Dragon” or a new game. However, the former is the most probable at this point, given that rumors of a “Spyro the Dragon” remastered trilogy have been widespread since early this year.
