Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled's file size detailed

Crash into me

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is set to launch later this month, so for those grabbing the digital release, it's time to make some room. The Switch eShop listing notes that the title will take up 5.7GB of space. Not an absolutely huge title, but still sizable if you're rocking the Switch's internal storage.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled - Dragon Mines & Retro Stadium Gameplay

Let's play Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled! Developer Beenox joins us for a close look at the reimagined Dragon Mines track and nostalgic Retro Stadium track.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled's Adventure Mode detailed, new footage shared

Adventure Time!

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is going to include an Adventure Mode to keep single-players occupied, and also to provide a way to learn the ins and outs of racing. In a Playstation Blog feature, Beenox goes over just what to expect in Adventure Mode.

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!

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled might include tracks from Crash Tag Team Racing (UPDATE)

Even more retro tracks than expected?

UPDATE - Unfortuantely, this information has turned out to be untrue. Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled will feature karts from Crash Tag Team Racing, but not tracks.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled is already packing in a ton of content, but it seems that we might be in for even more revamped classic tracks. According to the video above, an Activision rep has confirmed that tracks from Crash Tag Team Racing are going to be included as well. That's the first time we've heard anything about that, so either the rep broke some information unknowingly, or the comment was a mistake.

Breathe it in

Greetings, creatures of this planet, I've come to compete. So you pesky earthlings like to race, eh, hehehehe. Well I, Nitros Oxide, am the fastest racer in the galaxy. I travel the stars looking for creatures to test my skills. It's a little game I call Survival of the Fastest. Here's the way we play: I challenge the best driver of your world to a race for the planet. If your driver wins I'll leave your miserable little rock alone. But if I win I'll turn your entire globe into a concrete parking lot and make you my slaves. HAHAHAHAHAHA! Get ready to race for the fate of your planet!

Activision offering refunds on Guitar Hero Live, so long as you purchased in Dec. 2017 or after

Did you happen to buy Guitar Hero Live in Dec. of 2017, or after? If so, you are entitled to a refund on your purchase.

As you might remember, Activision announced quite awhile ago that they would be ending the Guitar Hero TV service for Guitar Hero Live. GHTV gave users an online TV channel of sorts that offered countless songs to play. Songs would change daily/weekly/monthly, really upping the overall value of the package.

With GHTV now dead, Activision feels it's only fair to refund people the cost of purchase if they got the game in Dec. 2017 or after. If you somehow got the game and had no idea that the service was ending, you'd quickly find out that you're missing out on a large chunk of what made the experience enjoyable. If you happen to fall into that very slim category, you can file a claim for a refund here.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled creative director shares a dev blog on the game's tech and more

Crash Team Racing's major overhaul was revealed last week, confirmed the long-standing rumor of a remake. It's obvious the game looks quite a bit improved over the original release, and over on the official Playstation blog, Beenox Creative Director Thomas Wilson went into detail on the project.

Our studio gets the proposition, ‘’How would you guys feel about remastering CTR?’’. I remember pausing for a second. And then I blurted out: ‘’You’re kidding, right?’’ I felt a sudden rush of adrenaline. That tingling feeling of joy and excitement spreading through your whole body. Throughout the discussions, I remember telling myself: ‘’Please, please, oh please, let this project become real.’’ And here we are! The game we were so eager to reveal to the world has been announced. No turning back now! We’re going full throttle towards June 21st and we’re so excited to show you what we have in store!
