Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has debuted in first place on the U.K. All Format Chart, becoming the biggest single-format release of 2017 so far.

Crash Bandicoot PS4 sales are impressive

The collection, which is available exclusively on PlayStation 4, came in second only to Ghost Recon Wildlands as the best launch of the year so far. In fact, the game was so successful upon launch that it even managed to beat fellow PS4-exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn, which launched to great success in the U.K. back in March.

Elsewhere, the standalone release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered barely managed to dent the top 40, entering the charts at a lowly 32.

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy was released on June 30, 2017 and features full remakes of the first three titles in the franchise: Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. Aside from a full visual makeover that brings the retro-tastic platformers into high-definition territory, the games also include enhanced sound effects and a unified checkpoint/save system. 

There’s been speculation that Vicarious Visions may work on another Crash remaster at some point, possibly the fan-favorite Crash Team Racing. The studio has also expressed interest in developing a brand new instalment in the venerable platforming series, although nothing has been confirmed at this point.
