It’s hardly a surprise, but a Crash Team Racing remaster was announced at last night’s Game Awards; Crash team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
“Our focus was to look at what had been done in the past and look at how we could bring an authentic experience, but also how we could modernize the experience for today’s audience,” explains Beenox co-studio head developer, Thomas Wilson. “There’s a reason it’s called Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and it’s because it’s the same game you loved, but revved up to the max. The same tracks, the same characters but all injected with brand new visual fidelity, a lot more personality – the characters are fully animated – and of course we’re bringing the online experience as well.“
The game will have online multiplayer, a new addition to the classic series, as well as modes like battle mode, time trial, cup race, adventure and arcade single race. Gamers will have the chance to play as the villain from the original game, Nitros Oxide, and can even unlock his hovercraft. “In the original Crash Team Racing game Nitros Oxide was not a playable character. For us it was obvious that people would expect to be racing with Nitros Oxide this time around.”
