Adventure Mode

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 allows the player to adjust the difficulty, customize their kart, and change their character during gameplay. Additionally, the boss characters are now unlocked automatically after beating them, instead of winning a Gem Cup.

Characters & Skins

14 of the 15 playable characters present in the original Crash Team Racing have been confirmed for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Nitros Oxide is also playable, having only been a boss character in the original game. All unique characters from Crash Nitro Kart, including five of the six boss characters, have also been confirmed.

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

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]

The player is able to 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".

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]
From all versions of the game, at least seven different kart bodies can be selected, along with all cars from Crash Tag Team Racing:

Crash Team Racing

  • Classic
  • Retro (PlayStation 4-exclusive)
  • Hovercraft

Crash Nitro Kart

Crash Tag Team Racing


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!

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.

Character Showcase


  • All tracks now have their own designated start line, themed around the track itself, a feature that was planned for the original Crash Team Racing, but scrapped due to technical limitations.
  • If the player taps the “use item” button with nothing equipped, a horn sound will play instead, in a possible nod to later Mario Kart games and Diddy Kong Racing.
  • All of the CNK karts (including the Team Cortex kart which had steering handles and the Team Trance kart which steered with a mind-controlled antenna) with unconventional steering devices, as well as Oxide's hovership, have now been given steering wheels for animation consistency.
  • The Trophy Girls appear to be absent from the remake.
