To recap, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a remastered compilation of the first three Crash Bandicoot games, 1996's Crash Bandicoot, 1997's Crash Bandicoot 2: Codex Strikes Back, and 1998's Crash Bandicoot: Warped. All of these games were first launched for the original PlayStation.
According to Paste, the said trilogy also marked the return of the franchise in 2017 after a seven year hiatus.
Nintendo Life said in their review for the game that it is a ruthlessly faithful recreation of the earliest successes in 3D platforming, while its levels are slick, gorgeous to look at, and recreate the feel of the original games superbly.
On the other hand, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is the recent addition to the franchise, being released in 2020 for next-gen consoles, as well as for Nintendo Switch.
In the game, according to Bleeding Cool, players will venture around new level types including N. Verted Levels, Flashback Tapes, and Alternate Timelines, all while mastering new abilities for Crash with the four Quantum Masks.
Finally, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a 2019 racing game that pits characters from different Crash Bandicoot series in kart race filled with crazy obstacles and high-octane gameplay. The game itself was a remastered version of the 1999's Crash Team Racing for the PlayStation.
The game also includes addition content from other Crash Bandicoot racing games such as Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing.
In a review by Nintendo Life, the said game is a visually phenomenal upgrade on a PlayStation classic, while faithfully recreating both its positives with its unique drift boosting system and its potential irritants, thanks to its tricky AI.
