The original game... revved up to the max.

Crash is back in the driver's seat!

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is a remake of Naughty Dog's PlayStation racing game Crash Team Racing developed by Beenox. The game features the same updated graphics as the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, as well as a number of additional features, including selectable karts, additional tracks from beyond the original game, and online multiplayer. It is set for release on June 21, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

  • Adaptation Expansion: The game now features selectable karts, which includes the ones from Crash Nitro Kart, and is said to include tracks from beyond the original game. There's also the addition of online multiplayer.
  • Art Evolution: There's been a lot of finer details added to the original tracks:
    • Crash Cove now takes place at sunset, and between the two bridges is a small hut on an island. There are also sharks in the water circling a box, calling to mind the jet ski levels from Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.

    • Roo's Tubes has underwater mines outside the track, making it more like the underwater levels in Warped.
    • Papu's Pyramid includes much more detailed cliffsides and foliage, more waterfalls, a mossier track and more colorful architecture. Some of Papu Papu's tribesmen can also be seen outside the track, one of them attempting to row their boat up a waterfall.
    • Dingo Canyon has been made to more greatly resemble the Warped motorcycle levels by including the diners, gas stations and billboards.
    • Blizzard Bluff is now set in a Norse-style village populated by penguins, emphasizing that this is meant to be Penta Penguin's home.
    • Tiny Arena has been made much flashier and more emphasis has been place on it being a futuristic monster truck arena. There are spotlights all over the place, walls are now painted with graffiti, screens advertising the other tracks (as well as Wumpa Whip), Cortex zeppelins flying overhead, and there are now large statues of Tiny, including a gigantic one looming over the entire track, seemingly holding it up by chains.

    • N. Gin Labs now features a cameo by the Humongous Mecha used by N. Gin during his boss fight in Warped.
  • Promoted to Playable: Nitro-Fueled, unlike the original game, officially allows players to unlock and race as Nitros Oxide, including his signature hovercraft vehicle.
