In honor of today’s release of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, here’s the Crash games that the country got on home consoles. They basically got all of ‘em, barring Crash of the Titans and Mind Over Mutant; Tag Team Racing was both the last home console Crash and the last Western-made Crash they got (the last Crash they got overall was the Dimps-developed Crash Boom Bang! for the DS, first released there as Crash Bandicoot Festival)

A thing to note about the Wrath of Cortex covers is that the Xbox/GameCube versions feature different artwork from the PS2 original, as you can see; the only difference between both those versions’ coverarts is that the Xbox one features the old Konami logo instead, being released earlier. And yes, Japanese GameCube owners got WoC as late as December of 2003; they ended up getting Nitro Kart first, rather than the other way around as it was in the West.

Another thing to note is that Japan will end up getting N.Sane Trilogy, albeit in early August, and published by Sony themselves rather than by Activision. If it’ll feature the same changes and additions the original PS1 versions got back in Japan, we don’t know (remastered Crash Bandicoot music vid plz Sony), although the cover will have a slightly redesigned Crash on it, so that’s neat.

Part 2 will cover the handheld installments (read: the GBA games)
