Update 03/08: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has been confirmed for Switch releasing on July 10.
Today's Nintendo Direct featured confirmation that the Crash N. Sane Trilogy will be headed to the handheld console in a few months time, marking Crash's debut on a Nintendo console. What a world.

Original story: Crash Bandicoot's N. Sane Trilogy was one of the surprise hits of 2017, selling millions of copies for the PS4. Now, thanks to that success, it may be headed to other platforms.
Max Arguile, licensing manager of merchandising firm GB Eye, has said his firm has struck a deal with Activision for associated Crash Bandicoot products well into the future.
In the extremely niche trade publication Licensing Source Book Europe, Arguile said "[N. Sane trilogy] was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be a new game in 2019. Activision have a five-year plan for this and GB eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products."
The quote has now been removed from the publication's online issue, which if anything is an even stronger confirmation of its authenticity. Crash is no longer a Sony boy.
