In less than ten days, we'll be hitting those nostalgia vibes with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for Nintendo Switch, along with other platforms. But the Switch version may stand out on its own. That's not just because of the ability to take it with you; but also because its processing work was a lot easier than you may think.
Nintendo World Report recently posted a story talking about how the game's transition to Nintendo's platform was easier than expected. In fact, it took just one person to bring it effectively to it in working order (though obviously it's been tweaked by others since that time).
When the game released for PlayStation 4 last summer, an engineer over at Vicarious Visions (the developer behind the compilation) managed to spent his weekend porting the first level to Nintendo's handheld system. Not only did he do it, but he did it effectively, as the game ran like a charm.
Following that work, however, Activision realized that ports of the game would be a great service for fans, not to mention a financial boon for the company based on sales numbers.
The game has since been modified so that it runs at a smooth 30 frames per second, both in portable and TV mode; so players won't be missing out on any of the action. There will also be bonus levels, including the new Future Tense level (which is also coming to other consoles) and more.
So if you haven't picked up Crash Bandicoot yet and want the ultimate version for your portable or home gaming needs, the Switch one is worth consideration.
