SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just when you thought the surprises were in the rear-view mirror, the beloved marsupial kicks things into a higher gear by giving fans even more content to play in Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled! Today, Activision, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), announces that the new game will feature remastered content from the original Crash™ Nitro Kart (CNK) when it arrives on June 21, 2019. Developed by Beenox, the bonus CNK content will include all thirteen of the game’s tracks which have been adapted to match the original CTR experience. Additionally, remastered karts, battle arenas and battle modes from the original CNK will be included in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and can be played in stunning HD glory.
To celebrate, Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be playable at PAX East in Boston (March 28-31). Show attendees can check out the Sony booth #16031 to be among the first in the world to get hands-on time with the new game. At the show, fans will have a BandiHOOT racing against each other on two fan-favorite Crash Team Racing tracks: Papu’s Pyramid and Sewer Speedway and two remastered Crash Nitro Kart tracks: Clockwork Wumpa and Electron Avenue. Fans can also snag super cool swag while supplies last and take part in a victory podium photo op.
