After bringing some Crash titles to current-gen consoles with the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Activision today announced Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Releasing on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is an authentic Crash Team Racing experience that’s been remastered in stunning HD and so much more.
Developed by Beenox, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is built from the ground up and remasters the original CrashTM racing game by bringing the characters, karts, tracks and arenas to modern console HD graphics. Fans will be able to see Crash and friends’ expressions and antics in beautiful detail as they blast each other with power-ups and whiz around the corners in all the original racetracks. The stakes are high and the competition is fierce as players race with a variety of Crash BandicootTM series characters, including Crash, Coco, Dr. Neo Cortex and others against the egomaniacal Nitros Oxide to save our planet from destruction. The game will feature several game modes, including Adventure, Arcade Single Race, Cup Race, Time Trials and Battle Mode. Players can also race against friends both online and offline.
The love that fans have for Crash Team Racing goes beyond just a fun kart racing game, and we’re excited to finally show fans what we’ve been working on to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Not only are we revamping Crash Team Racing from the kart up in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, we are giving fans a whole lot more including all the characters and tracks they love, with tons of added animations and personality that the original platform just couldn’t convey. We can’t wait to see fans go head-to-head as they test their Crash kart racing mettle in online multiplayer.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled releases on the 21st of June, 2019. A digital Deluxe Edition will be available for $59.99, and will include the full game, Nitros Oxide as a playable character from day one in all game modes, Oxide’s Hovercraft kart, space-themed character skins for Crash, Coco, Cortex, and much more. Players who do not purchase the Nitros Oxide Edition can earn the Nitros Oxide character and Oxide’s Hovercraft kart by completing some of the fiercest challenges in the Adventure Mode.
