Mention the words Kart and Racer to a gamer and aside from a slightly overweight plumber, the first thing that pops into their heads is Crash Team Racing.
This being the case there is some excellent news contained within the latest update to the ratings on the ESRB website as Crash Team Racing has been listed for the PlayStation 3 and PSP. It isn’t yet clear if this is the CTR remake we reported on a couple of months ago, or if it’s a US release of Crash as a PSOne Classic.
What is sure to be a PSOne Classic is the listing of Motor Toon Grand Prix which was a PlayStation launch title in Japan. Confusingly, it was released as Motor Toon Grand Prix 2 outside of Japan. The game was produced by Kazunori Yamauchi of Polyphony Digital fame and development-wise is seen as a pre-cursor to the Gran Turismo series.
