Dick Dastardly and Muttley return

Eidos is bringing Wacky Races: Crash & Dash to both Wii and DS. You'll find the first screens of the Wii versionhere, and the DS versionhere.

Inspired by the cartoon, the game will feature familiar characters, cartoon environments and outlandish cars that should be identifiable to anyone over the age of twenty.

Racers must watch out for traps, collect Wacky Widgets to gain Wacky Powers, as well as use their unique Way Out Wacky power. Anyone not clear that this game is going to be 'Wacky'? Good.

Based on the screenshots, it doesn't look like Eidos has mimicked the Mario Kart-style we would have liked. But we're still hoping its gameplay could outshine any graphical hesitations we've got.

Wacky Races: Crash and Dash will hit DS and Wii sometime this June.
