We're only days away from the Game Awards, and rumours are rumbling about the prospect of a remake of Crash Team Racing being unveiled.
Ahead of the awards, PlayStation Access host Hollie Bennet took to Twitter to share a gift she'd received - a pair of orange fluffy dice and the note 'sliding into the game awards 6/12 - anonymous'. We've also received them at GAMINGbible HQ, and they do feel more windscreen decor than snakes and ladders.
This may not seem like much to go on, but fans have jumped to the conclusion that it means there will be an unveiling of a remake of Crash Team Racing. Thinking logically, the dice are orange and fluffy - like everyone's favourite fictional bandicoot - and of course dice are often hung from the rear-view mirror of a car - meaning it could be referencing the 1999 PlayStation game.
One person replied to Hollie's tweet, saying: "While people are quick to say CTR, I see orange dice. What are dice used for? Playing games. Mini games are a type of game. Crash had a mini game-based game. Crash Bash remake confirmed."
Another said: "I mean Activision have been sending a lot of promotional items to you recently fuzzy dice and sliding are things associated with Kart racers and its orange so Crash Team Racing defo seems like a good bet." [sic]
The Spyro remake was teased in a very similar way, when a purple egg which was sent to a number of gaming outlets and influencers with the message, "Something's about to hatch". And lo and behold, we're all now able to relive the glory days with Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
Whether it's a fictional fantasy or a reality yet to happen, it's very apparent that people want more Crash Bandicoot in their lives.
The Game Awards kick off at 1.30am UK time on Friday 7 December (6 December, local LA time), so expect confirmation on this remake, either way, by the time you're eating your breakfast.
