Crash Team Racing is getting the remake treatment as Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled with a June 21 release date for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The original Crash Team Racing was a classic on the PS1. While it received a spin-off on the original Xbox, GameCube, and PS2 called Crash Nitro Kart, it failed to recreate the magic of the first game. Hopefully Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled changes this. The Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled price is $40 in the US (around Rs. 2,800). While Activision is yet to announce a price for India, it should be around Rs. 2,699 judging by Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy's MRP.
"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,” said Thomas Wilson, Co-Studio Head at Beenox, the Activision-owned studio working on this remake. "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 features
- Original game modes, characters, tracks, power-ups, weapons and controls
- Additional karts and tracks from beyond the original game
- Race online with friends and compete in online leaderboards
Plus there's the ostentatiously labelled Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled - Nitros Oxide Edition for $60 (around Rs. 4,200) which gives you the Nitros Oxide character playable from day one in all game modes along with space-themed skins for Crash and his friends, and Oxide's hovercraft kart. Players who do not purchase the Nitros Oxide Edition can earn the Nitros Oxide character and Oxide's hovercraft kart by completing challenges in the game's Adventure Mode.
