  • Crash Team Racing at The Game Awards

As previously teased from the appearance of unusual fuzzy dice on social media, Crash Team Racing is indeed making a comeback - and just in time to rev up summer 2019.

Activision announced a remake of "Crash Team Racing" during The Game Awards 2018 called "Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled".

It's the closest thing you can get to Mario Kart outside of Nintendo's platforms. Will you be taking it for a spin?

Beenox, who previously worked on the Spider-Man games Shattered Dimensions and Edge of Time, is behind the game's development, taking over for Vicarious Visions, who did N. Sane Trilogy past year.

But while fans enjoyed reliving their memories of the 32-bit platformers, many also wanted a similarly remade version of the 1999 kart racer starring every gamer's favorite bandicoot.

While it's fairly similar to the latter, the game's adventure mode was perhaps the key difference - seeing players taken on a more story-driven single-player outing with a hub world reminiscent of 1997's Diddy Kong Racing.

As with Activision's other retro re-skins, the stages themselves appear to be like for like with the original, but are layered upon with a massively improved level of detail that breathe new life into the game.

Speaking to IGN, he said: "We boot up our PS1 and we start playing Crash Team Racing again, getting a sense of what that experience was and what the game we fell in love with to begin with [was]".

The standard edition doesn't have any fancy collectibles or digital pack-ins, but the game is all you really need anyway.
