Update: Well it’s nearly noon here in the U.K. so I may as well confirm what you already all know, that this is a simple April Fools’ Day joke by me. I’ve been a major Crash fan ever since the first game released and have wished for the day that a HD collection will be released. I mean it seems an obvious money maker.

Sadly I doubt this will ever happen for real. I honestly wish that this wasn’t a joke and hope that one day this will actually be announced. I apologize to everyone who got excited about this news.

Original: Get your wallets ready people because 16 years after the release of the original Crash Bandicoot Activision has officially announced a HD collection for everyone’s favorite orange marsupial.

Activision took over the franchise back in 2008 and following a few failed attempts at relaunching the publisher decided to shelve poor Crash. But fans around the world rejoice as Crash is getting a HD makeover, and not just the first game, but all three of the PlayStation originals plus Crash Team Racing–the best racing game in the world in my opinion, and one which consumed many hours of my life.

The publisher promised that all four games will play exactly as they did on the PSOne, the only differences will be HD graphics and the inclusion of Achievements/Trophies.

Yes that’s right Achievements! Not only are we finally getting one of the most sort after HD upgrades in the world, but the collection is also coming to Xbox 360 and PC, allowing everyone to enjoy some classic Crash goodness.

The Crash Bandicoot HD Collection is due to release this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
