We got a new trailer for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled today, as well as some new information: this game will be even larger than previously thought. It’ll not only contain all the original tracks and karts from the PS1 release (remastered with modern visuals and poly-counts), but it will also have the 13 tracks that were introduced in its sequel, Crash Nitro Kart.
“Since the very beginning, we’ve said we’re giving fans a whole lot more in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled,” said Thomas Wilson, co-studio head at Beenox. “As fans, we know the important role that Crash Nitro Kart plays in the Crash franchise among the community, so we’re thrilled to be remastering the tracks, karts and even the battle modes to give players an awesome Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled experience.”
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be playable at PAX East in Boston later this week. Visit booth #16031 to play Papu’s Pyramid and Sewer Speedway from CTR, and Clockwork Wumpa and Electron Avenue from Crash Nitro Kart.
Today’s new trailer was unveiled during the Sony Playstation State Of Play livestream you didn’t watch (and besides Crash, you didn’t miss much). Sony took the occasion to announce some bonus content would be exclusive to the PS4 version: PS1-era skins for Crash, Coco and Cortex, reducing them to their jagged polygonal glory days. Plus a bonus “retro track” which has yet to be revealed. If you preorder the PS4 version today you’ll get one more bonus: a Playstation-themed DLC sticker pack to decorate your karts in-game.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled races onto Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch and XBox One June 21.
