After the immense success Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, it became pretty evident to Activision that remaster edition of classic games are something that can give tough competition to even newly released AAA-titles, leading to a major comeback of everyone's favorite purple dragon. One thing you should note is that if you are going to purchase a retail copy of the game, you will only get the first of the trilogy in a disc and will have to download the other two.
