I don't know why I'm genuinely surprised by this news, but not only had Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy shot back to number one in the UK charts, it's the fastest selling Switch game so far in 2018.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a remastering of the original three PlayStation titles from the 90s. Any 90s kids out there will know the kind of nostalgia these things bring back and, ho' boy, there's a lot. I mean, it doesn't include the Spyro demo in the menu, but we can just check out the Spyro Reignited trailer again.

As reported by Gamesindustry.biz yesterday, the game pulled in some remarkable figures. While it's the game's eighth time in the UK's No. 1 spot, both the Xbox and Switch versions did extremely well. Xbox One only edged out the Switch edition by about 250 copies, but it's no surprise that players are buying. At a highly reasonable £30, it's an excellent deal.

This means it's edged out Mario Tennis Aces and The Crew 2 which is no simple feat. Currently on the UK and US eShop it sits in fourth place with Minecraft, Hollow Knight, and Mario Tennis Aces ahead of it.
