Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled launches in a few days and it's had quite a demo-rich E3, where Beenox and Activision showed off the new and improved version of the game that probably tore apart more friendships than Pro Evolution Soccer.
Don't let its whimsical world fool you - Crash Team Racing is a brutal and uncompromising game, where only the strongest survive. Well...not really, but you know, it's much better when you set the stage with some trash talking.
As you can see for yourself, Beenox appear to have done a great job all around, seemingly retaining what made the original so special. No, not trash talking, even though that's part of it, but more like the general fun factor of the game.
Everything that made Crash Team Racing such a fun endeavour is there, albeit in new flashy garments. You can find a few side-by-side comparisons in our gallery below, should you wish to take a closer look.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a remake of Naughty Dog's original CTR game, but its track count stands at 31 tracks, since it features all the content from Crash Nitro Kart as well.
To top it off, the dev announced at this year's E3 that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will come with a bunch of post-launch content in the form of Grand Prix seasonal updates.
Yes, basically like a battle pass, except it will be free and there will be three of them, each featuring a brand new Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled track made specifically for this purpose.
The first Grand Prix season starts on 03 July 2019, which is plenty of time to run through the classic tracks and jog your Crash Team Racing memory. It will bring the Twilight Tour track.
Activision have raked in some sweet remasterware-flavoured dough as of late, with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, the platforming side of Crash, killing it in physical sales alone.
The company had some success with Spyro Reignited Trilogy as well, so it's pretty clear they'll keep milking the oldies for all they're worth.
