Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a remake of the original Crash Team Racing title that launched on the PlayStation 1 in 1999. Nitro-Fueled is a completely overhauled modern take on the classic racing game. The title is developed by Beenox and published by Activision. Nitro-Fueled is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original Crash Team Racing.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will see players race as iconic characters from the Crash Bandicoot universe, like series antagonist Neo Cortex, Crash’s sister Coco, and of course as the titular character himself Crash Bandicoot. Nitro-Fueled will feature a single-player campaign mode where the player has to race to save the world from certain doom. The game will also include split-screen co-op and online multiplayer.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, for the first time in the franchise’s history, will feature customizable karts and characters. Players can change the wheels of their kart, add stickers and decals to the body of the kart, change the colour of the kart to their liking and even change the body of the kart itself. Players will be able to change the look of their favourite characters through new skins and costumes.
The launch of the game is just the beginning of the journey. On 3 July 2019 the game’s Grand Prix event will begin, where players have access to new courses, karts, cosmetics and much more. The developers have announced that all post-launch content for the game will be released for free for everyone who owns a copy of the game.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be available for purchase in South Africa on 21 June 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
