Topic: Is Crash Bandicoot 4 Physical?

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time comes out this Friday the 12th of March, and I myself can't wait. However, I can't find a physical copy of the game in any UK store. I'm not adamantly against buying a digital copy, but I'd rather buy the game physical. GAME does not list a release date for the game, and Amazon does not even have a listing for it. Other countries don't seem to have this problem, and from what I've seen, Activition hasn't said anything about the lack of a physical edition. I've seen other people on this site having the same problem, so I was just wondering if anyone has anymore insight of this situation. Hoping anyone could help.

Hey same problem in France. They list the physical edition on Fnac (like Best Buy) but it's set for release 31 December...placeholder I'm assuming. I asked customer service and they of course knew nothing. Maybe a question for Nintendo Europe?

@gamerkittykat Nintendo aren't publishing the game so they wouldn't know, its a question for Activision.

@Snatcher That’s alright. I just came here to see if Activition had said anything about the ordeal. Thanks for replying

@TJC04 You could ask NL if they have a contact with Activision or ToysForBob. The support pages for those sites don't provide a channel to ask about UK physical release for Crash 4(Switch) - I looked.

ask via News Tips/Press Release?

@WoomyNNYes I didn’t actually know NL had that feature. I’m not sure if they know anything, but it wouldn’t hurt to ask. Cheers!

I can also confirm there is no box version of this game in my country. I am very disappointed..

@TJC04 If they don't respond, it's because they don't know anything else either.

It seems odd that this is out on Fri and the major retailers are not listing this.

My concern is that they might not be issuing the complete game on cartridge. Unfortunately, online retailers often show artwork WITHOUT the mandatory download warning (as was the case with Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit). I'll consider grabbing this, but not before seeing the packaging in person.

@Silly_G It's 10.09 GB on Xbox store. I would think that's a good sign that the full game will be on the the Switch cart. Or maybe I'm naive.

EDIT:

Perhaps this can be trusted? Best Buy site says Full Game is on cart, under requirements, in the Specifications section of the page.

Requirements — Video Game Content Included — Full game

There have been times where publishers have skimped on 16GB in favour of 8GB cartridges, so, unfortunately, there is a precedent. And in Capcom's case, 1GB to save money on using a 4GB cart in the case of Mega Man Legacy Collection! (both parts could have fit on a 4GB cart)

It's sad that that even needs to be listed, but some disclosure ahead of time can be handy. Incidentally, Best Buy's listings for the physical editions of both Spyro Reignited Edition (also published by Activision) and Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit on Switch states that the "Full game" is on the cartridges even though there is a mandatory download requirement for both, so, I think it can be taken from this that their information is unreliable.

@Silly_G Oh crud, you're right. On Best Buy's site, Spyro Reignited says "full game" too. Which we know wasn't true. Total baloney.
