Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced - Trivia


General Trivia

  • Like The Huge Adventure, some copies of the game came with a poster.
  • This was the first game to have different logos between NTSC-U and PAL, different names notwithstanding.
  • N. Trance's portion of the Hyperspace island is based on Salvador Dalí's painting The Persistence of Memory, with several melting clocks.
  • The level Wild Nile Ride has a hidden message under the floor before the second Checkpoint. This is impossible to view without the use of a graphical tool, but it is also present in the Official Prima Strategy Guide (see scan submitted by Ntropydude here). The message says "TATTA", followed by the Vicarious Visions logo and a smiley face.

Music

  • The main theme is, once again, remixed from Crash 3, as is the Warp Room theme.
  • Island Intro, as well as all the Atlasphere levels, have the exact same music as the jungle levels from The Huge Adventure, which, in turn, was just a rearrangement of the jungle levels from Crash 2.
  • The Arabia, Egypt and volcano levels borrow their themes from Crash 3, with the volcano levels using the pre-historic swamp music.
