PSU was contacted by the person responsible for taking the photos, who confirmed that they were actually snapped in a Target store in Florida, USA. The images were originally posted to a Facebook group known as Press X To Start.
According to a post on NeoGAF, the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy release date has broke two weeks ahead of schedule, with one lucky gamer managing to lay his hands on a copy of the highly anticipated PlayStation title.
While it isn’t 100 percent confirmed where the photo originates from, the poster speculates that it is most likely Kuwait, and reckons the game will be sold ahead of its release in UAE territories within the next few days.
Crash Bandicoot doesn’t officially make his PS4 debut until June 30, although we imagine this won’t stop other retailers from leaking the game ahead of its intended release date. The bundle includes the first three Crash Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped) games fully remade for Sony’s flagship console, complete with enhanced graphics, sound effects, and a unified checkpoint/save system. Oh, and there’s a pretty cool Uncharted easter egg hidden in the game to boot.
While fans have been calling out for a brand new instalment in the venerable platforming franchise, there are currently no plans to see a full-fledged return for the crate-bashing marsupial just yet. However, developer Vicarious Visions has hinted that it may create more remakes of older titles, citing Crash Team Racing as a perennially popular choice among gamers.
