Switch Version of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Removes Naughty Dog References

Nintendo fans were delighted to know that the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy would be coming to the Switch. It was later revealed that the trilogy would also be heading to Xbox One and PC, so everybody gets to play it. The system is perfect for platformers, as Super Mario Odyssey has proven, and it should be perfect to play on either handheld or TV mode.

However, there are some changes being made that might upset hardcore fans of the series. According to My Nintendo News, all references to Naughty Dog will be removed from the Switch version. This will also likely be the case on Xbox One and PC.

Before Activision had the franchise, Naughty Dog were the ones responsible for making Crash a gaming icon. Now known for Uncharted and The Last of Us, Naughty Dog worked on the first three games and the excellent Crash Team Racing, which is in need of an N. Sane Trilogy-like remaster.


While the crew will likely be thanked in the end credits, the references to Uncharted will likely be removed from the Switch version. This does make sense since the Uncharted series is owned by Sony. It will be interesting to see what images replace the Uncharted ones.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available now on PS4. The Switch, Xbox One, and PC versions come out on July 10.
