Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is buzzing around the track with a new gameplay trailer, released today, from developer Beenox. The publisher, Activision, is working alongside their subsidiary studio in Quebec to bring a faithful recreation of the the 1999 original CTR to new platforms, and now we get to see some of the fruits of that labor.
Beenox has worked on a ton of other Activision-published titled, including the likes of Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 4 and a ton of Spider-Man games. So they have produced some great games, and I’m sure that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be no exception. Especially because the game is being remade from the ground up for modern platforms. That means it’s getting all new assets, sound effects, and animations. This work will hopefully pay off in an incredible bit of nostalgia and fun for Crash fans.
In terms of gameplay, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a pure Kart racer. The controls are meant to be really tight allowing for excellent control on the track. And this is a good thing, because achieving victory is all about precise usage of turns, powerslides and boosts.
The game will feature solo and splitscreen play true to the original. But there’s a ton more new content being added in. The remake will feature new content including new tracks, online play, kart customization (including karts from the game’s indirect sequel Crash Nitro Kart.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is due for release on June 21 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Check out the latest trailer for the game down below.
