by Rainier on July 1, 2019 @ 2:01 p.m. PDT

Crash is back again, and this time he’s revved up to the max in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, an authentic Crash Team Racing experience that's been remastered in stunning HD and so much more.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is built from the ground up and remasters the original Crash 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 Bandicoot series characters, including Crash, Coco, Dr. Neo Cortex and others against the egomaniacal Nitros Oxide to save our planet from destruction. In the new game, Adventure, Arcade Single Race and Cup Race, Time Trials and Battle Mode are back.

Play Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled single player or vs. friends both online and offline.

On July 3 at 12:00 AM GMT (July 2 5:00PM PDT), all Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled players that purchased the game will get the first Grand Prix* season called Nitro Tour pushed to their consoles for free – which gives fans more game to love, including a brand-new track, Twilight Tour, to conquer.

Twilight Tour will take players on an epic ride through a middle east-inspired track! Players will enjoy racing through the track that shifts from day to night during gameplay. What’s more, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled players will be able to compete in Grand Prix challenges* and fuel up their “Nitro Gauge” (XP) with Nitro points, to earn rewards, such as a new character (Tawna), new character skins, new karts, and new kart customization items. Also, as part of the content being offered during the Nitro Tour Grand Prix, the in-game Pit Stop is being updated with new characters, skins, karts, and kart customization items. Players can use the Wumpa Coins* that they earn by playing the game to unlock additional cool items, such as the Nitro Squad as playable characters for the first time. Formerly known as the Trophy Girls in the original CTR, the Nitro Squad have come to compete as some of the fiercest racers around!

For more information, players can head over to CTR TV, the in-game news channel where hosts Chick and Stew revealed some of the fun awaiting players in the Grand Prix and more.

For the first time, Crash Team Racing fans will have the opportunity to customize their karts and characters in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled!

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled 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! What’s more, karts from Crash Tag Team Racing will be available in the new game.

In addition to the ability to customized karts, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will also let players customize their racers. Yes, lead developer Beenox is adding N. sane character skins to the remastered game. This will allow players to adorn their characters with a zany sense of swag and personality - Boo-ya! Also new to the CTR experience are unique podium animations available to certain skins making celebrating victories even more amazing. And if that wasn’t enough, characters from Crash Nitro Kart will be available in the new game.

Players will earn customization items by playing through the Adventure Mode and also by collecting in-game Wumpa Coins to swag out their kart and characters in the game’s Pit Stop area. What’s more, character stats, just as you remember are returning and will include Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced classes. So, whether you are a first-time racer, or a pro eager to put your skills to the test again, the wait is almost over!
