After being humiliated yet again by Crash Bandicoot at the end of Twinsanity, Dr. Neo Cortex returns to his evil scheming in his dilapidated Iceberg Lair. He hatches a sinister plan to challenge Crash to a seemingly friendly race competitionÂ…with plans of crushing the hapless bandicoot under the ruins of the hazardous racetrack! In Crash Tag Team Racing players will be able to fuse two cars together on the fly to form a super vehicle outfitted with a turret gun with the all-new "clashing" technology. Players can continue their adventures on foot with out-of-car action, allowing them to traverse an amusement park-like world where they can interact with other characters, collect items and complete mini-missions.

"Crash Tag Team Racing on the PSP system will give Crash Bandicoot fans a hilarious and unique racing game that they can take with them wherever they go," said Ian Wilkinson, President, Radical Entertainment. "Crash Tag Team Racing will use all of the technological advancements of the PSP system -- including wireless multiplayer and advanced graphics -- to create a game unlike any other on the system, one that combines intense combat racing, player cooperation, great humor and on-foot exploration."

In Crash Tag Team Racing, players will be able to "Clash" their car with an opponent's mid-race, fusing the two together to create a super-car equipped with a powerful turret gun. When clashed, players can either get behind the wheel and drive or fire an onboard weapon. Each character has his or her own uniquely deadly 360-degree rotating turret. Players can continue the action out of the car where they can explore the entire world on foot and collect upgrades for their cars and unlock bonus tracks.

Crash Tag Team Racing for the PSP system will take advantage of the technical innovations of the device, including advanced portable graphics and wireless multiplayer modes. Players will be able to play against one another through a wireless connection in Co-op Mode, where two players join and race together in a permanently clashed vehicle to race and combat other players, as well as Tournament Mode, where each player competes alone in a series of races to determine the ultimate winner.

Crash Tag Team Racing is the perfect game for Crash fans young and old, featuring hilarious gameplay and challenges fit for all levels of players. Penned by writer Jordan Reicheck, best known for his work on Ren & Stimpy, Crash Tag Team Racing brings the trademark Crash Bandicoot humor to new levels.

After being humiliated yet again by Crash Bandicoot at the end of Twinsanity, Dr. Neo Cortex returns to his evil scheming to challenge Crash to a seemingly friendly race competition ... with plans of crushing the hapless bandicoot under the ruins of the hazardous racetrack! Crash Tag Team Racing for the PSP system is expected to be available in Fall 2005 for a suggested retail price of $39.99.
