Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has been popular among fans and critics but the game has a troublesome issue.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled launched just over a week ago on PlayStation 4, and while it's generally a great remake, it's had its fair share of issues.
Leaderboards will be added to the Grand Prix Menu.
Championship Leaderboard - You can earn points based on your performance while playing online multiplayer: You're given a number of points each time you complete a race in online multiplayer†. The bonus will be given within 24 hours of completion, upon access to the Pit Stop. "Twilight Tour" will be a brand-new track available to Local Arcade and Online modes. The character Tawna will able to be earned through completing Grand Prix challenges and earning Nitro Points. The content being added includes new karts, characters, character skins, paint jobs, wheels, and karts stickers.
The Pit Stop segment of the game will also be updated with new items. Of course, all of this content is redeemable with in-game Wumpa Coins. The new characters that are being added to the Pit Stop are Ami, Megumi, Isabella, and Liz who are all from the "Nitro Squad".
Speaking of the Pit Stop it will be getting a variety of new content added to it. So get collecting, and get stacking! While it painstakingly recreates the core gameplay loop of the original two Crash Team Racing titles, it wraps the game around it in a more modern structure (and some seemingly un-modern loading times, even on my PS4 Pro), a strangely satisfying half-step of evolution for the long-dormant series (Crash Nitro-Kart was released in late 2003 - and no, Crash Tag Team Racing doesn't count, it's a goddamn platformer). Podium animations will be added to online matches, there'll be a "Message of the Day" screen added, adjustments will be made to the Wumpa Coin earn rate and character icons will reflect the skin you have equipped.
Collisions of certain maps have been reworked to remove stuck spots and possible exploit areas, along with an improvement to fidelity.
On the track, Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled is the same fantastic Mario Kart clone it was back in 1999, complete with the game's carbon-copied items and ever-debated power-slide mechanics (press R1 to jump and slide, then time presses of L1 to gain turbo boost up to three times). How has your experience with CTR been so far?
