Here’s some cool facts about Crash Bandicoot, directly from Wikipedia:
Crash Bandicoot is a franchise of platform video games. The series was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Universal Interactive Studios and was originally published by Sony Computer Entertainment; which the series was exclusive for Sony’s PlayStation console. The series has appeared on multiple platforms and gone through various developers and spans numerous genres.
The games are mostly set on the fictitious Wumpa Islands, an archipelago situated to the south of Australia where humans and mutant animals co-exist, although other locations are common. The main games in the series are largely platformers, but several are spin-offs in different genres. The protagonist of the series is a genetically enhanced bandicoot named Crash, whose quiet life on the Wumpa Islands is often interrupted by the games’ main antagonist, Doctor Neo Cortex, who created Crash and wants him dead as he is a failed experiment. In most games, Crash must defeat Cortex and foil his plans for world domination, but there have been instances when they have worked together.
The Crash Bandicoot series has been a commercial success. As of 2007, the series altogether has sold over 40 million units worldwide. According to Gamasutra, the first Crash Bandicoot game had sold 6.8 million units as of November 2003, making it the seventh best-selling PlayStation game of all time. Cortex Strikes Back sold 3.85 million units in the U.S., while Warped sold 3.74 million. The last 2 games on the PlayStation console, Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash, sold 1.9 and 1.1 million units in the U.S. respectively.

On February 12, 2019, Activision announced in a press release for its “4th quarter and 2018 Financial Results”, that N. Sane Trilogy has sold-in over 10 million units since its initial release in 2017.
