CTR: Nitro-Fueled Hands-On - 7 Ups & 2 Downs


7. It's Almost Three Games In One (CTR, Crash Nitro Kart AND Crash Tag Team Racing)

Crash team racing

Yes, although Activision are drip-feeding details of the full game despite a release date of June 21st, one of the biggest takeaways from my time was being told Crash Tag Team Racing's karts are going to be included as well.

This final game in the kart racing side of Crash's life dropped in 2005, and is a firm favourite with those who got into the Bandicoot after Naughty Dog's departure. Though the official word is that the dev team still have "some tricks up their sleeve" in regards to further details before or after launch, for now we can confirm CTR Nitro-Fueled will have full track lists from CTR and Nitro Kart, alongside karts from Tag Team Racing.

Whilst on the face of it, it seems insane to "stealth drop" mention of a whole new set of karts after pre-orders are locked in, but think about it: Crash's N. Sane Trilogy had three games, Spyro's Reignited did the same. It makes sequential sense to package another three titles' worth of content (tracks not included) into one more fan-pleasing package.
