Perhaps one of our favourite announcements of last night's Game Awards was for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, a long-rumoured and much requested remake that we're happy to see is on the way. The debut trailer for the kart racer looks wonderful, and the fresh coat of paint continues to shine through in a small batch of screenshots.

It looks like developer Beenox has taken the assets and artistic design of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and built on it to create its polished up version of the beloved racing game. The result is impressive, and it looks as though there's a keen attention to detail to ensure it's a faithful recreation. This is clearer to see in the below comparison shots:

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.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is out on 21st June 2019 for PS4. Will you be taking it for a spin? Cross the finish line in the comments below.
