Crash Bandicoot Nintendo Switch Retailer Listing Sighted, Even Pre-Orders

Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy gave many long-time fans a means to enjoy a classic within this generation of gaming. When it came out on the PlayStation 4 last year, sales were phenomenal and the Internet was in a haze of nostalgic bliss. Though there have been mentions of the remastered trilogy coming to other platforms, it looks like the sights weren't just set on the Xbox One.
The Nintendo Switch's library has grown exponentially since the hybrid console's release last year, with many surprising ports along the way. It looks like Crash might be added to that growing library, at least if the below retailer listing can be believed.
Like with all speculation and leaks like this, until the Big N or the publishing team themselves confirm it; take this report with a grain of salt. Still, the listing above was seen courtesy of Spanish retailer XtraLife with a placeholder date slated for this year. As of now, the listing itself has been taken down but what goes up remains on the internet forever. One thing that is interesting about this, however, outside of being able to take Crash on the go is that the listing itself took quite a few pre-orders allegedly. With the post now down, there hasn't been any word as to whether or not the pre-orders will be honored or if they will be refunded if this ends up not being a true port.
This isn't the first time that a retail listing has gone up in error, often times pointing at an eventual release. With more and more companies pledging their support to the latest platform from Nintendo, this wouldn't be a hard sale to see. The way the Switch effortlessly moves between being an at-home console to on-the-go handheld would work beautifully with the Crash game mechanics, and the graphics would find a good home in it as well.
With a rumored Nintendo Direct still circulating for th is month, it could be possible that we will be seeing an official announcement soon. Until then, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available now exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
