As you can see, Polar, along with the rest of the game, is getting a significant upgrade in visual fidelity. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will feature the first three games in the Crash series: Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot Warped

This remaster is far more than just a fresh coat of paint. Pretty much the only thing being retained from the original releases is the level geometry. Textures, gameplay and character models are all getting a modern makeover, and this trailer shows a small peek at what's in store for us.

You can get your hands on the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy on June 30 when it comes out on PlayStation 4. However, for those who want Crash on Xbox One or PC, you may have a bit longer to wait. The N. Sane Trilogy hasn't been confirmed for other platforms, but there is some hope that it will eventually make its way to other systems.
