Activision and Beenox’ reinvention of the classic Crash kart racer is here. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
Fast and Fur-ious
If you’re a Crash fan, today’s launch is second only to the release of the N.Sane Trilogy. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is the Crash universe’s kart racer, and looks to bring back the fun of the PSOne era original.
To that end, the new game is a full remake of that first game, and includes all that you’d expect. On top of all the characters and tracks, the game also offers online play and something called Grand Prix.
Grand Prix is essentially a set of free downloadable content. It’ll add a new track, kart, character, and “customization options” on a seasonal basis. That’s something else that’s new to CTR, customization. Exactly what it sounds like, the new set of options will allow gamers to customize their rides and their riders.
“The wait is finally over, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is ready for its inaugural ride,” said Thomas Wilson, Co-Studio Head at Beenox. “A lot of care and attention to detail went into developing this game for fans of the original Crash Team Racing 20 years ago, and new fans who expect a modern kart racing experience. Staying true to the original CTR games, while adding so much more content and creating a living, breathing world that just wasn’t possible on first generation platforms has been a true labor of love!”Activision press release
