Crash is back in the driver's seat! Get ready to go fur-throttle with Crash™ Team Racing Nitro Fueled. It's the authentic CTR experience plus a whole lot more, now fully remastered and revved up to the max!

Official description

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a racing game published by Activision and developed by Beenox for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, released on June 21st, 2019. It is a Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy-themed remake of the original CTR: Crash Team Racing (1999) and features content from Crash Nitro Kart (2003) and Crash Tag Team Racing (2005), as well as references to other games in the Crash Bandicoot series, such as Crash Twinsanity (2004), and Crash: Mind Over Mutant (2008).

There are two separate editions: the regular edition, and the Nitros Oxide Edition, which has Nitros Oxide, Crunch Bandicoot, Zam, Zem and Oxide's Hovercraft automatically unlocked, as well as exclusive kart customization options and skins for certain characters.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay in Nitro-Fueled is very much the same as in the original Crash Team Racing. The player chooses a character from the Crash Bandicoot series and competes against the other racers on various obstacle-based racetracks to reach the finish line, and throughout the races, characters can gather Power-Ups from the ? Crates to give themselves a boost or hinder their opponents, as well as performing boosts via Power Sliding and jumping to gain speed.

Game Modes[]

Adventure[]

The Adventure Mode from the original game returns with some adjustments. There are now two modes to play; Classic, which recreates the original experience, and Nitro-Fueled, which has three difficulty settings and allows the player to change their character and customize their kart during gameplay. Additionally, the boss characters are now unlocked automatically by beating them in their respective Challenge race instead of winning a specified Gem Cup.

As of the Neon Circus Grand Prix update, five Golden Eggs have been scattered in the Adventure mode areas, located in tricky, hard-to-reach places. Should the player collect them all, a new character can be unlocked by taking the eggs to a chicken fresco in The Lost Ruins, opposite the warp pad to Tiger Temple.

Local Arcade[]

Local Arcade is where the rest of the local modes are. All the modes from the original Crash Team Racing return, as well as some additional content. Multiplayer can also be accessed in this mode.

  • Single Race allows players to race on any race track they like in any setting.
  • Cup Race allows players to race in a set series of four tracks. The Wumpa Cup, Nitro Cup, Crystal Cup and Crash Cup all return from Crash Team Racing as they are, in addition to the Velo Cup, Aku Cup and Uka Cup, which uses tracks from Crash Nitro Kart. The Spooky Grand Prix introduced the Lost Cup, which includes two of the remaining base game tracks and two Bonus tracks from previous Grands Prix. Similarly, the Winter Festival Grand Prix added the Bonus Cup, which houses more Bonus tracks. The Gasmoxia Grand Prix added the Desert Cup and Space Cup, which includes the remaining Bonus tracks from the last Grands Prix and an assortment of previous tracks with matching themes.
  • Battle allows players to duke it out on any battle arena from Crash Team Racing and Crash Nitro Kart. All battle modes from Crash Nitro Kart can be played here.
  • In Time Trial, players can race on any track against the clock and set a new record of their fastest time. Like in Crash Team Racing, N. Tropy's ghost can be unlocked for each track, and N. Tropy himself can be unlocked as a playable character by beating his ghosts on all of the non-bonus tracks. Nitros Oxide's ghosts become available for a track after beating N. Tropy's ghost on that track. When the Gasmoxia Grand Prix was started, Emperor Velo XXVII ghosts were added to each track, unlocked by beating the corresponding Oxide ghost. With the March 26th, 2020 update, ghosts of various Beenox staff members (referred to as developer ghosts) were added to each track, unlocked by beating the respective Velo ghost.
  • As of the Neon Circus Grand Prix update, Ring Rally is available as a new mode. Players will have to drive through as many rings as possible before the timer reaches zero.
  • In Relic Race, players will have to race on a track as quickly as possible, like Time Trial, but they will have to finish within a certain time in order to win a Relic. Hitting as many Time Crates as possible is the key.
  • In CTR Challenge, players will have to finish 1st against opponents as in a Single Race, but are required to find the letters C, T and R in order to succeed. Some of the letters are hidden out of plain sight.
  • In Crystal Challenge, players have to collect all twenty Crystals within an allotted amount of time on any of the battle arenas.

Online[]

The Online Feature allows up to 8 players to play single races or battles together over the internet. The online play feature requires a stable peer-to-peer internet connection and a subscription to Playstation Plus, (for PlayStation 4 users) Xbox Live Gold, (Xbox One users) or Nintendo Switch Online (Switch users).

  • Matchmaking mode automatically connects the player to a room containing up to 8 total players based on their skill and the strength of their connection. After the track/arena is decided by a vote, the race/battle will begin automatically. If there are fewer than 8 human players, easy-difficulty AI will be added to the game to ensure that there are 8 participants. Three tracks are selected at random, and players in the waiting room vote from those choices on the track to play (with a fourth option at the bottom for a random track, which selects one of the above three randomly). In the event of a tie in the vote, the track listed highest among those tied is the track that wins.
  • In Private Match, a player can set up the rules as they please. Other players must be invited manually, or they can join by themselves from the in-game "friends" menu if they are friends with the match's host.

Pit Stop[]

The Pit Stop is an in-game shop that allows players to purchase extra content with the Wumpa Coins they earned from races (such as characters and karts). Internet connection is required to earn Wumpa Coins and access the Pit Stop.

During a Grand Prix, brand new items are available for the entire duration of the Grand Prix. These items reappear in the Pit Stop permanently two months after that particular Grand Prix ends.

The Pit Stop features three menus that can be accessed using the shoulder buttons on the controller.

  • Featured lists a daily, randomized selection of items that can be purchased. By default, the selection includes a character, a skin, a kart decal, a paint job, a wheel set, a sticker pack, a kart set, and a bundle, depending on what the player already has. The Pit Stop's selection changes at 12:00 AM UTC.
  • The Wumpa Coins menu allows players to purchase more Wumpa Coins through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Arcade or Nintendo eShop.
  • When a Grand Prix is over, the Nitro Fill Up option appears, allowing players to purchase all the remaining items they haven't yet acquired on the Nitro Gauge with Wumpa Coins before the next Grand Prix begins.

The Pit Stop can also be accessed in the Online mode menu.

High Scores[]

Allows the player to view the best times on each track, either locally, or online.

Grand Prix[]

From July 3rd, 2019 to March 22nd, 2020, month-long Grand Prix events took place, which introduced more playable characters such as Tawna, Spyro the Dragon and Nina Cortex, as well as brand new skins, karts, and race tracks. During a Grand Prix, players could earn Nitro in order to fill up the Nitro Gauge and unlock new content, by partaking in challenges in any mode. New content was also temporarily available in the Pit Stop.

Grand Prix also required an internet connection in order to participate.

During each Grand Prix, specific characters and kart parts would have a Nitro Canister bonus, which when equipped would add a certain percentage to the amount of Nitro a player earned by completing a challenge. These Canisters could be stacked for bigger percentages, and were usually given to the Grand Prix's new content.

Accessing Grand Prix via the main menu or the Online menu would show the player their current progress on the Nitro Gauge, as well as five categories for the challenges they could do:

  • Quick Challenges were the same five challenges that would reset daily, and, hence the name, could be accomplished very quickly for 200 Nitro per challenge.
  • Daily Challenges changed every 24 hours and took a few more requirements in order to accomplish, but could also be done fairly quickly.
  • Weekly Challenges changed every seven days. While these challenges were simple, they took a fair bit longer to accomplish. In turn, more Nitro could be earned with these than with the Daily Challenges.
  • Themed Challenges remained available until the end of the Grand Prix, and were themed after the current Grand Prix and its newly introduced content.
  • Pro Challenges were also available during the remainder of the Grand Prix. These challenges were fairly difficult to accomplish, but a lot of Nitro could be earned with them in turn.

Skilled players could also earn a Champion kart set with a unique decal if they were listed within the 5% of either of the two Grand Prix Learderboards, which can be accessed using the shoulder buttons:

  • The Championship Leaderboard ranked players based on how many Trophies they earned during Online matches. During a Grand Prix, players could earn a varying amount of Trophies based on their ranking in an Online Single Race or Battle.
  • The Nitro Leaderboard ranked players based on how much Nitro they earned in total. Even after filling up the Nitro Gauge, players could still earn more Nitro for this reason.

Some Grand Prix events included extra challenges that were exclusive to the Grand Prix. The Spooky Grand Prix sometimes hid Ghosts in a ? Crate, which the player needed to catch for certain Challenges. The Rustland Grand Prix included an evolution on this challenge, in which a Golden Wumpa Fruit would occasionally appear during online races, which was worth 200 Wumpa Coins when collected.

Characters[]

The game has a total of 56 playable characters as of March 26th, 2020. All characters from the original Crash Team Racing are playable in the game, including Nitros Oxide, who was an unplayable boss character in the original, and Penta Penguin, who was only playable via a cheat code. All remaining playable characters from Crash Nitro Kart, as well as five of its boss characters, also return to make up the base game roster. Characters from Crash Tag Team Racing make their reappearance, with Chick Gizzard Lips and Stew making their playable debut. Yaya Panda, who was a playable character in Crash Nitro Kart 2, Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D and Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 (all mobile games), makes her debut in a console game.

Players can equip their characters with skins, some of which have unique animations for the winner's podium. Skins from Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Crash Tag Team Racing and Crash: Mind Over Mutant are included as well. Currently, there are three sets of skins for Crash, Coco and Cortex that are exclusive for download.

The Invincibility Mask item changes depending on the character. With the exception of Penta Penguin (who can randomly use either Aku Aku or Uka Uka), King Chicken and Iron Checkpoint Crate (both of whom can randomly use Aku Aku, Uka Uka, Velo Mask, Sparx or Apo-Apo), there are currently nineteen drivers affiliated with Aku Aku, twenty with Uka Uka, eleven with the Velo Mask (added in the Nitro Tour Grand Prix), and three with Sparx (added in the Spyro N. Friends Grand Prix).

The Rustland Grand Prix introduces a new mask named Apo-Apo, which affiliates itself with ten characters that use a Rustland skin, regardless of which Invincibility Mask they originally use.

In Adventure Mode, characters affiliated with Velo Mask receive instructions from Uka Uka and characters affiliated with Sparx receive instructions from Aku Aku. All characters will use Sparx when racing on Spyro Circuit, while all use Apo-Apo when racing on Megamix Mania.

New characters could at first be unlocked in the Grand Prix, such as Spyro the Dragon, Baby T, Doctor N. Brio, Komodo Moe, Koala Kong, Rilla Roo, Nina Cortex, Mega-Mix, and the Nitro Squad - consisting of Tawna and the Trophy girls from the original game: Ami, Isabella, Liz, and Megumi. All characters unlockable during the Grand Prix were added to the Pit Stop at later dates.

Driving Styles[]

There are a total of five Driving Styles, previously known as Character Classes, in the game. Each character has their own default Driving Style, which will always be used by AI opponents playing as them. The default Driving Style is also applied when the player's Driving Style is set to Classic.

As of the Spooky Grand Prix, players now have the option of applying their preferred Driving Style to any character of their choice. In addition, the Neon Circus Grand Prix introduced a new Driving Style called Drift.

Kart Customization[]

Before any race, you have the choice to pick a random choice of kart and driver. However, in the "Karts" menu you're able to go deep with your selection and cobble together a sleek hovercraft, wobbly jalopy, or rampaging roadster!

Official description[1]

Players can customize their kart beyond just selecting what playable character to use. Customizable components include the kart body, kart wheels, and extra stickers that can be applied. Components can be bought using Wumpa Coins which can be earned in the game's Adventure Mode, Arcade Mode or Online Mode.

Kart Sets[]

Kart bodies are designed after specific combinations of parts, which the game dubs Kart Sets. These include kart bodies, wheels, and paint jobs, with the inclusion of a decal for some of them.

Bodies & Decals[]

This offers up a variety of chassis types, which will grow in number as you earn more through the game. For example, pick the "Classic" CTR kart body that you're used to, or ride in the chunky SUV-style "Crikey", or futuristic "Doom Buggy".

Official description[1]

Wheels[]

When you're burning rubber, you might want to install a set of wheels that matches your kart's body. Or, you can mix and match; it's entirely up to you! There's a wide variety of wheels to earn; whether you're using the skinny Six-Pipes rims or the super-chunky Trikee tires, you can have a ton of options in your race prepping!

Official description[1]

Paint Jobs[]

If you're wanting to change the color of your kart chassis to a green, or an iridescent purple, or even add a carbon fiber inlay, then you're in luck: Choose from a selection of preset colors and spray your vehicle in a hue to match your mood, from the vivid crimson of Team Cortex Red to the cool turquoise of Nitro Aqua.

Official description[1]

Stickers[]

You need a last bit of personalization to finish off your contraption, and this comes courtesy of a sticker that adorns your vehicle. Choose a number, cool icon, character face, or leave the kart sticker-free.

Official description[1]

Special Karts[]

Special Karts are non-customizable karts with unique models and paint jobs. They are available only through special promotions outside the game.

Power-Ups[]

Power-Ups work mostly as they do in the original Crash Team Racing, and these same Power-Ups return from that game. They are items acquired by breaking the ? Crates during a race and can be used to attack opponents or aid the user. Each player can hold only one Power-Up at any time. Collecting ten Wumpa Fruit during a race turns the Power-Ups "Juiced Up", making them more powerful.

Power-Up Description
CTRNF-GreenBeakerCTRNF-RedBeaker
N. Brio's Beaker
The Beaker can be laid on the track or thrown ahead by the player as a simple obstacle. Anyone who runs into or is hit by it will spin out momentarily.
When Juiced Up, the Beaker contains a red liquid instead of a green one, and also causes anyone who runs into it to slow down significantly with a black storm cloud appearing above them. Additionally, the Power-Up they currently have, if any, will be replaced with a new one, and they can't use it until the storm is gone.
CTRNF-TNTCrateCTRNF-NitroCrate
TNT Crate
The TNT Crate can only be laid behind the player. The crate will explode in three seconds when someone runs into it, during which they have to repeatedly hop around to remove the crate and throw it backwards. When the crate explodes, the victim can be seen tumbling. Like most Crates, the TNT Crate can be destroyed from a distance with weapon Power-Ups.
When Juiced Up, the TNT Crate becomes a green Nitro Crate, which will explode immediately when run into.
CTRNF-BowlingBombCTRNF-TripleBowlingBomb
Bowling Bomb
The Bowling Bomb can be rolled out in front of or behind the player, and explodes on impact or when it reaches an abyss. Pressing the Power-Up button again while the Bomb is still rolling causes it to explode prematurely, as if manually detonated.
When Juiced Up, the Bowling Bomb gains a homing ability and has a much larger blast radius, making it easier to hit multiple opponents at once.
Sometimes, players can receive three Bowling Bombs from a single ? Crate.
CTRNF-MissileCTRNF-TripleMissile
Tracking Missile
The Missile will target the closest opponent in front of the user and send them tumbling on impact. The Missile won't take the stage layout in mind though, and will come into impact with a wall if the target is too far away. They also won't travel over abysses. Players can use a Beaker, Bowling Bomb or a TNT Crate to defend against a Missile.
When Juiced Up, the Missile travels much faster and has a better homing ability.
Sometimes, players can receive three Missiles from a single ? Crate.
CTRNF-Turbo
Turbo
Using a Turbo will give the player a quick speed burst. This speed burst also allows the player to squash opponents in the way. The Turbo cannot be stacked within a turbo boost chain to reserve a longer turbo boost.
When Juiced Up, the Turbo will give a faster turbo boost that lasts a little longer.
CTRNF-GreenPowerShieldCTRNF-BluePowerShield
Power Shield
This green bubble shield encases the user, protecting them once from any obstacle or an opposing Power-Up. It can also be used to run into opponents, causing them to tumble on impact. The shield is only active for a limited amount of time before it disappears. Pressing the Power-Up button again allows the user to shoot the shield forward.
When Juiced Up, the Power Shield turns blue and lasts indefinitely until impact with an obstacle, an opponent or a Power-Up, or the user shoots it.

CTRNF-AkuAkuCTRNF-UkaUka
CTRNF-VeloMaskCTRNF-Sparx
CTRNF-ApoApo
Invincibility Mask

The Invincibility Mask temporarily protects the user from all kinds of damage, as well as giving them a speed boost. It allows the user to hit as many obstacles, Power-Ups, and opponents as they can within its duration.
Players will get a different Invincibility Mask depending on the character they play as. Aku Aku appears with Crash and his friends, Uka Uka appears with Cortex and his henchmen, the Velo Mask appears with Emperor Velo XXVII and his associates, Sparx appears with the Spyro the Dragon characters, and Apo-Apo appears with Rustland-themed characters. Additionally, Sparx appears as everyone's Invincibility Mask on Spyro Circuit, while Apo Apo does the same on Megamix Mania. King Chicken and Iron Checkpoint Crate can use any of the five Invicibility Masks.
When Juiced Up, the Invincibility Mask lasts for a longer amount of time.

CTRNF-NTropyClock
N. Tropy Clock
When used, the N. Tropy Clock emanates a large radius that causes all opponents to spin out and slow down significantly for a short amount of time. The Clock also prevents opponents from using their Power-Ups.
When Juiced Up, N. Tropy Clock will cause all opponents to slow down for a little longer.
This Power-Up is only available during races.
CTRNF-WarpOrb
Warp Orb
The Warp Orb travels around the entire track, targeting the opponent in the lead, and also able to hit anyone it encounters on its way. There is no way for the race leader to avoid the Warp Orb other than a Power Shield or an Invincibility Mask. Racers not in the lead can still evade the Warp Orb if the track is wide enough.
When Juiced Up, the Warp Orb will target not only the leading opponent, but also every other opponent ahead of the user.
This Power-Up is only available during races.
CTRNF-SuperEngine
Super Engine
The Super Engine gives the player an immediate lasting speed boost, even after being hit by an obstacle or power-up.
When Juiced Up, the Super Engine produces blue fire and lasts longer.
This Power-Up is generally only available during battles, but as of August 23rd, 2019, this Power-Up is now also available in online races.
CTRNF-Invisibility
Invisibility
Invisibility makes the player invisible to opponents. This prevents Missiles from tracking the user down and makes it harder for opponents to aim their other Power-Ups. Invisible players can still be hit with those Power-Ups, however.
When Juiced Up, the effect lasts a little longer.
This item is only available during battles.

Race Tracks[]

The game has 39 tracks in it, consisting of the eighteen tracks from the original Crash Team Racing, the thirteen tracks from Crash Nitro Kart and eight original tracks which were each added as part of Grand Prix events. The PS4 version of the game also has one extra exclusive "Retro Track", Retro Stadium.

Reception[]

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled received "generally favorable" reviews on Metacritic getting a metascore of 83/100 on PS4,[7] 84/100 on Xbox One[8] and 80/100 on Nintendo Switch.[9]

Chris Moyse of Destructoid gave Nitro-Fueled an 8 out of 10, praising the graphics, variety of tracks, and game modes, but criticized the tracks' inconsistent designs and the Adventure mode's difficulty curve.[10] Michael Damiani of Easy Allies gave it an 8.5 out of 10. However, he criticized the online mode for only featuring races and battles, and none of the other modes offered in the game's Arcade mode.[11]

Electronic Gaming Monthly rated the game 3 out of 5 stars.[12] Michael Leri of GameRevolution rated it an 8 out of 10, praising the visuals, controls, the powersliding mechanic, and the mix of old and new content, concluding that "Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is both a respectful reimagining and a superb, modernized kart racer in its own right." Leri echoed Damiani's sentiments about the game's online features for its lack of modes and netcode.[13] Andrew Reiner of Game Informer gave an 8 out of 10, concluding that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled "is every bit as good now as it was back in the day."[14]

GameSpot's Oscar Dayus rated it 8 out of 10, stating that the game "is a remaster done right", though he stated that the overall handling "takes a bit of getting used to."[15] Ford James of GamesRadar+ rated it five out of five stars.[16]

Janet Garcia of IGN gave the game an 8.2 out of 10, commenting the "difficulty, memorable track design, and addictive Power Slide mechanic make it a kart racer worth playing." However, she criticized the Adventure mode as "cheap and unforgiving."[17] Chris Scullion of Nintendo Life rated the Nintendo Switch version of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled an 8 out of 10. He praised the overall faithfulness to the game's original PlayStation release, but criticized the long loading times. [18]

Neal Ronaghan of Nintendo World Report gave the Nintendo Switch version a 7 out of 10, praising the variety of multiplayer and single player modes, and the customization, but criticized the long loading times, online play, the difficulty curve, and poor visuals in Handheld mode.[19]

Trivia[]

  • A prequel digital comic, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Digital Comic, was also released on the same date as Nitro Fueled, and was shared on the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter.[42]
  • The game and its tie-in comic book feature the highest number of references to most of the other games in the series to date, featuring multiple references from the original trilogy, Crash Bash, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced, Crash Nitro Kart, Crash Twinsanity, Crash Tag Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart 2, and Crash: Mind Over Mutant, in the form of character returns, skins, karts, cameos and easter eggs, something which developer Beenox noted to be intentional by stating they had all previous games to draw content to add on the game.
  • This is the first game in the series to be localized in Brazilian Portuguese, Latin American Spanish and Arabic.
  • Every track now has its own unique, designated start line, themed around the track itself. This feature was planned for the original Crash Team Racing, but scrapped due to technical limitations related to the PlayStation hardware.
  • At least one Chicken is hidden in the Adventure Mode hub world and in every track.[43]
  • If the player presses the Power-Up button while no Power-Up is held, a horn will honk.
  • All karts with the exception of the retro kart now have a four-speed automatic transmission which is heard when not powersliding or boosting.
  • Coco's skin "Dark Coco" is a reference to Evil Coco, her 11th Dimension counterpart that was scrapped from Crash Twinsanity.
  • From the start, and in Classic Adventure Mode, instead of N. Gin's kart being purple and Pura's kart being indigo, N. Gin's kart is violet, Pura's kart is purple, and indigo is not a featured color.
  • All of the karts with unconventional steering devices, such as the Team Cortex kart which had steering handles, the Team Trance kart which was steered with a mind-controlled antenna, and Oxide's Hovercraft, have now been given steering wheels for the purpose of animation consistency.
  • The voice actors featured in the N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy return to portray their characters (with the exception of Nitrus Brio, who is now voiced by Tom Kenny, taking up the role from Maurice LaMarche).
  • The game features the very first instance of Tawna, Komodo Moe, Koala Kong (though only in the Neon Circus Grand Prix Intro), Yaya Panda and Megamix having spoken lines. Out of these, (possibly) Tawna, Yaya and Megamix previously only had dialogue in text form.
  • This game marks the return of Rilla Roo since Crash Bash, and Von Clutch, Pasadena O'Possum, Chick Gizzard Lips and Stew since Crash Tag Team Racing.
  • Each of the eight new tracks added in the Grand Prix have a name consisting of two alliterated words beginning with the same sound (not always the same letter). For this purpose, the hyphenated word "Drive-Thru" can be treated a single word.
  • After much criticism from fans, Rilla Roo's face was fixed in the 3/26/20 update.[44]
  • Ripto, the Sorceress and Willie Wumpa Cheeks were originally going to be playable in the game.
  • In Crash Team Racing, Nitros Oxide said in the introductory cutscene "But if I win, I'll turn your entire globe into a concrete parking lot and make you my slaves." In the remake, he says "minions" instead of "slaves".
  • In the original Crash Team Racing, the player could accelerate, brake and reverse by holding Up or Down on the Right Analog Stick when using an analog controller. This feature has been removed in Nitro-Fueled.
  • For unknown reasons, no new and original battle arenas were created for this game.
