Crash Team Racing Remastered Release Date, Trailer, Characters - Everything We Know

Dreams do come true people, Crash Team Racing is back. Here’s everything you need to know.

The Game Awards had its fair share of awesome announcements, but all were clearly overshadowed by the news that Crash Team Racing is making a comeback. It seems that Activision has greenlit a full remeaster of the cult kart racer. It’s called Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled, and looks to feature all of the characters you know and love. To help get you up to speed, we’ve been busy collecting all of the info currently known on the remeaster. We’ll be taking a look at the release date, the announcement trailer, and what characters are going to be included.

We’ll be adding more and more info as it is released. Be sure to check back regularly for more updates on Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled.

N.Gin Labs, Coco Park and Dingo Canyon are among the tracks shown, with all original tracks returning for the remaster.
