The Crash Bandicoot series has always been beloved, but it has experienced an explosion in popularity recently thanks to the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled. Both are modern-day remakes of their old-school counterparts from the PlayStation era. Both remakes have enjoyed robust sales, with N. Sane Trilogy surpassing 10 million copies sold as of February of 2019, and Nitro-Fueled dominating the global sales charts for the week of June 30, 2019.
Dreams is home to a plethora of popular recreations of beloved games, ranging from Metal Gear Solid, The Legend of Zelda, and Marvel’s Spider-Man. According to Media Molecule, the early access version of Dreams has over 100,000 users, which is quite the feat.
