The strange state of modern gaming – SEGA publishes “Crash N.Sane Trilogy” for Nintendo Switch in Japan
It doesn’t seem long ago that SEGA fans were asked to get used to seeing Sonic the Hedgehog appear on Nintendo and Sony consoles. Only a few years later, SEGA would actually be producing a game featuring Mario in the form of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games while Sonic himself would become a regular in the Super Smash Bros. series.
To make the world of classic gaming mascots even more confusing, SEGA has taken it upon themselves to localize and publish the Nintendo Switch version of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. Let’s break it down: Crash, the former unofficial PlayStation mascot, appearing on a Nintendo platform, published by SEGA. Do mascots mean nothing anymore? What bizarro timeline have we stumbled into?
In any case, if these old rivals can get along in current year, maybe there’s hope for the rest of us, eh?
What’s that? There’s a midterm election in a few weeks? Well, shit.
Thanks to muh boi Zealous Fox for pointing out this interesting little tidbit.
