Thomas Wilson — Co-Studio Head at Beenox took to the PlayStation Blog to give plenty of new details about their upcoming racing title, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled.
Beenox has brought back the beloved adventure mode for the 1999 racing title, but also added a few improvements to it as well. There will be a classic version of the story mode, however, there will also be an updated one that will give a new fresh look at the storytelling moments to both new users and fans of the franchise alike!
Check out the new details about the Adventure Mode for Crash Team Racing down below:
The Adventure Mode: Nitro-Fueled
In bringing the Adventure Mode back, we knew we had to hit all the elements that made the original so special. The challenges are the same — there are trophy races, boss races, relic races, token races, and gem cups. The characters are back — choose from Crash, Coco, Cortex, Polar, Pura, Tiny or any of the other starting lineup characters you remember from the original. And the thrill of earning new characters (like Ripper Roo and Pinstripe Pontoroo) is still a huge part of the fun.
However, we wanted to take things a step further for CTR Nitro-Fueled. Instead of just earning the boss characters like in the original, players will now earn something every time they win a race. Players will be getting new kart parts, character skins, or kart customization items with every victory.
Also, players will now earn the boss characters immediately after they beat that boss, instead of after Gem Cups (which now unlock a new set of valuable prizes). This includes the ability to earn Nitros Oxide himself — though that is no easy task!
