Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy Becomes Fastest-Selling Switch Game of 2018

Within days after its launch, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy became 2018's fastest-selling Switch game.

After publisher Sony came up with remastered versions of first three titles from the popular Crash Bandicoot series on PlayStation 4 as Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy a year ago, it made a great comeback to modern consoles. Nintendo decided to introduce a port for this iconic '90s franchise into their next-gen gaming gadget Nintendo Switch a little later, just as they always do. Just as they launched the title on June 29, it became the fastest-selling Switch game of this year.

Although, Nintendo has dominated the video game market last year, they haven't been able to make it large this year yet but that has completely changed when Crash Bandicoot started cashing in some serious buck immediately after Switch debut. Aside from nostalgia factor, players are seriously hooked in for an improved gameplay and better graphics. Reportedly, the game is currently ruling the UK gaming charts and pushed another Nintendo game Mario Tennis Aces from top.

Lately, action-adventure first-person shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has been ported to Switch and doing considerably well. Despite Wolf 2 being an anticipated title on the portable console, it couldn't keep par with Crash Bandicoot. Xbox One edition of N. Sane Trilogy actually outsold Switch by 250 copies as it also saw release on PC and Xbox. Just as how immensely popular these titles were originally on PlayStation when it came out first, they still are today after two decades.

Since Nintendo have seen a huge drop at their stock prices following E3 2018, the success of N. Sane Trilogy is great news for the company. However, staying on top of gaming charts for long is quite the trick. Not having many upcoming first-party exclusive titles except Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo is still selling tons of third-party games to remain a dominant force. The publisher has shown that they can still make magic without their flagship series of Mario and Zelda.
