Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be coming to the PS4 later this month, and fans are beyond excited. Vicarious Visions has done a fantastic job remastering the classic PSOne game, which will be playable during the event. If that wasn’t enough, Activision has promised a “special Crash announcement” during E3, with many hoping it’s Crash Team Racing.

The original PlayStation’s answer to Mario Kart, fans would love to see a remaster of the fun spin-off title. Even Vicarious Visions acknowledged that it’s one of the most requested games. Fans have wanted a remaster of the racer ever since the N. Sane Trilogy was announced, hence the renewed excitement. Having Vicarious Visions work on the game like they did with the N. Sane Trilogy would be a wonderful announcement.

Spinning and Crashing

Whether it was the single-player campaign or the four player multiplayer, Crash Team Racing had something for everyone. The series’ heroes and villains were forced to team up and defeat a new foe to save the world. Having to save the world via racing was funny, and the imaginative courses were really fun to go through.

Like Mario Kart, there were plenty of power-ups to use against opponents to stay ahead, including the series’ TNT boxes. There was even a battle mode for players that just wanted to destroy each other without the need for racing. A PS4 remaster of the game would be wonderful, especially if the visual boost is as good as the N. Sane Trilogy.

It might have been a Mario Kart ripoff, but there was no denying how fun Crash Team Racing was. With remastered visuals and smoother gameplay, a CTR PS4 remaster would be a massive hit with the Sony faithful. Here is hoping that Activision delivers this or something just as exciting, given all the hype Crash Bandicoot has now.

Currently, there are no kart games that can compete with Mario, so bringing CTR back to the fold would help. It could lead to more kart racers in the future, maybe even sequels to CTR, though there were PS2 successors. Basically, fans want a remaster of the game really badly, and are willing to wait if it ends up as good as the N. Sane Trilogy.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be coming to the PS4 this month on June 30, and could come to other consoles afterwards. A special Crash announcement will be made in E3, with many hoping it ends up being a Crash Team Racing PS4 remaster.
