Activision announced today that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is now available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. The kart racing game celebrates the franchise’s 20th anniversary with the debut of competitive online multiplayer.
In addition, Activision is releasing free downloadable season content beginning on July 3. Each season will feature a newly themed track, characters, karts, and other customization items.
Players can race as a variety of Crash Bandicoot series characters, including Crash, Coco, Dr. Neo Cortex, and others against the egomaniacal Nitros Oxide to save the planet from destruction. The game features remastered tracks from the original Crash Team Racing and reimagined tracks from Crash Nitro Kart.
“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,” says Thomas Wilson, Co-Studio Head at Beenox. “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!”
According to Activision:
For the first time in 20 years, Crash Team Racing fans will have the opportunity to customize their karts and characters in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled! The remastered game will offer players a variety of ways to mix and match kart bodies, wheels, paint jobs, stickers, and even add decals to karts. Now fans – both new and those who first fell in love with the ’90s classic — can create a sweet looking ride!
