What's old is new again, as the video game industry has been making good use of the strong nostalgia for beloved classics from years gone by, with recent updates such as the Final Fantasy 7 Remake receiving huge critical acclaim. Activision, in particular, has been capitalizing on the recent trend, searching through its vast backlog for familiar favorites to breathe new life into in the modern era.
These remakes have been a smash success and even helped completely revive interest in what were once forgotten franchises, with the stunning Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy paving the way for a proper new mainline installment in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Even with this considerable success, the company is not set to rest on its laurels just yet, with Activision confirming that even more remasters are due in 2021.
What each of these mystery remasters end up being is still yet to be confirmed, but based on what Activision has already remade and taking a moment to look back at the biggest hits under its belt, there are plenty of options for what could be on the horizon. Regardless of what ends up receiving a new coat of paint, gamers that are fans of all genres should have a reason to be excited.
As mentioned earlier, the Crash Bandicoot series is on a roll after great remakes like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled leading up to the critically acclaimed Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. Although an exciting time for fans of the PlayStation classics, one notable standout seemed to have been completely skipped over when it came time to receive the remake treatment. The fan favorite multiplayer party game Crash Bash has yet to be brought back into the spotlight with graphical improvements and gameplay tweaks.
Serving as a response to Nintendo's popular Mario Party franchise, Crash Bash followed the same basic formula but naturally with the expected charm and humor found in the Crash Bandicoot games instead. The game's overall design and stage layout is not terribly complicated, and with many of the assets and character models already updated for previous remakes, much of the groundwork is already finished for a potential Crash Bash comeback.
After the disastrous launch of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 back in 2015, the series was forced to take a hiatus from the gaming landscape and return to the drawing board. As with many remasters, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise made the wise decision to renew interest and trust in fans by travelling back in time to re-deliver the experience that started it all with a shiny new remake of not just the first, but second game as well all in one package.
Longtime fans of the skateboarding simulators will know that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 was only half the original catalogue, with the following two games in the Pro Skater series being left out from this recent remaster. Perhaps it would have been too ambitious an endeavor to remake all four games at once, so the choice could have been made to split them into two parts to pace out the release schedule. Especially considering that the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 remake was a nostalgia fueled success, Activision must know that fans are clamoring for more, with an announcement seeming like a definite possibility as time goes on.
