A pair of fuzzy dice came with a possible release day hint.
If a pair of fuzzy dice and a brief note are anything to go off of, it appears CTR: Crash Team Racing is primed for a reveal at The Game Awards.
IGN received a large, orange pair of fuzzy dice (reminiscent of Crash himself) in the mail, along with a note that reads: “Sliding into the Game Awards on 12/6… – Anonymous.” One of the die only has a six on it, while the other has the standard one-six. Combined, it adds up to a six and a 21, perhaps hinting at a Friday, June 21 release date.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, the N. Sane Trilogy is based off the PlayStation classics made by Naughty Dog. It’s possible this same studio could be working on a much-requested CTR remaster, as fellow Activision studio Toys for Bob just released the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, and likely wouldn’t be ready to reveal another title. A similar hint came before the reveal of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy in the form of a mysterious purple egg.
In our review of CTR: Crash Team Racing on the original PlayStation, we said “If you want a pure party game — and the best kart game on PlayStation or Nintendo, for that matter — get Crash Team Racing.”
In our review of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, we called the collection “Great” saying “Largely standing the test of time mechanically, Crash’s first outings get an N. credible facelift in this collection.”
