Crash Bandicoot Selling Like Hotcakes, Makes New Record In UK



In the 90s, Crash Bandicoot was the ideal PS game and after almost three generations, it is back with a bang

Crash Bandicoot currently occupies the top spot in UK charts overtaking the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Basically, it is going to be the 2nd best release of the year with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands being the first one.

Activision remade their three original games of Crash Bandicoot which were developed by Naughty Dog back in the 90s and so it gives the series the opportunity to enter the UK charts as #1 and this is exactly what happened to the Wipeout series a couple of weeks before. It has even spurred the series to be the 24th best-selling franchise in all time across the country. The game was described as ‘a fantastic remake of some of the best platformers of all time’.

Over the weekend, a very clear sign from N.Sane Trilogy was given which was that it was being outsold in the UK and so the title turned out to be the best selling game of the year in Amazon UK. Recently, a member of the development team said Activision is prone to the idea of a remake of Crash Team Racing which is probably going to turn true as time passes by.

Crash Bandicoot is probably an all time classic , but no one could have expected the phenomenal reaction that would follow , the game has been selling right, left and center and will probably stay on top for a number of weeks.Check the top rest of the top 10 out below:
