It’s been 20 years since Crash last hopped into a kart and allowed us the chance to kick into top gear and blast our way round numerous tracks. But today we get given the opportunity to do it all over again as Crash is back and ready to go toe-to-toe with Sonic in a high speed karting battle with Crash team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, going up against Sonic Team Racing in the process, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled takes everything we know and love about Crash Team Racing from back in 1999, before remastering, remaking and rehashing it into a more modern day experience.
Promising to deliver the authentic CTR gameplay yet in a more up-to-date package, Nitro-Fueled comes with all the original game modes and tracks that we enjoyed back in the day, along with all the usual characters from the Crash universe, a ton of power-ups, a choice of weaponry and the chance to power slide to glory once more.
As you would expect though, now that CTR is coming in a Nitro-Fueled edition, there are also new karts, new tracks and new arenas to embrace as we get a racing fix by going it alone, or take on our closest friends and most distant rivals across the online scene. Basically put, this is Crash Team Racing… Nitro-Fueled!
If you wish to get involved – and let’s not bear around the bush, there is little reason NOT to want to – Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch comes in a couple of flavours. There’s the standard edition for £34.99 which delivers the base game and all the glory it holds within, and then there’s also the Nitros-Oxide version for a few quid more – £54.99 – which also chucks in Nitros Oxide as a playable character, along with Crunch, Zem and Zam. Further still is a Hovercraft kart, some new skins and animations for Nitros Oxide, Crash himself, Coco and Cortex, and then also some exclusive Crunch Robot goodies.
If you reckon you’re the fastest racer in the galaxy and wish to prove your worth then taking a trip to the usual digital stores right now will see you dropped into the full CTR experience. Let us know if we’ll be seeing you out on track by posting in the comments below. We’d love to hear your thoughts surrounding the latest kart racer to hit Xbox One.
And don’t forget, if you really like what you find with Nitro-Fueled and wish to take your CTR experience to the next level, Numskull Designs have some sweet Crash Team Racing loot on offer.
