Crash Team Racing Remaster Set to Be Announced at The Game Awards [Update: Confirmed]

Crash Team Racing Remaster Set to Be Announced at The Game Awards [Update: Confirmed]

Racers to the line.

Update: Crash Team Racing was confirmed at The Game Awards. It's launching June 21, 2019. We'll post the trailer as soon as we have it.

Looks like the Crash Bandicoot train isn't just stopping with the N. Sane Trilogy. A new teaser suggests that the CTR: Crash Team Racing is also revving for a comeback.

Rumors began swirling earlier this week that CTR would be making an appearance at this week's Game Awards. PlayStation Access presenter Hollie Bennett then shared a photo of a pair of fuzzy dice with a card that reads: "Sliding into the Game Awards on [12/6]" and signed by anonymous.

For those of you who don't know, fuzzy dice are an American accessory placed on car windows for reasons only the forefathers truly understand. And the unmistakable Cheetos orange points directly at our bandicoot friend and his kart.

Also, Eurogamer has heard that this is indeed the case and that a CTR remake is officially in the works.

CTR: Crash Team Racing is the PlayStation 1 kart racing game developed by Naughty Dog way back in 1999. No word yet on release date or platforms, but if it's like the N. Sane Trilogy we can perhaps expect visual overhaul at the least.

Funny enough Naughty Dog would go on to develop Jak and Daxter and the spinoff Jak X Racing, but we have yet to receive any such racing spinoffs for Naughty Dog's most recent games Uncharted and The Last of Us.
