Prior to the reveal, in an interview with Beenox’ Co-Studio Head Thomas Wilson talked about his respect for the Crash series, and how to developers sought to remain faithful for this remake.

“I was a big fan of the Crash series, so you can imagine that I thought it was super exciting to come back to this,” said Thomas Wilson. “I would definitely say that Crash Team Racing deserved to be remastered, and I think that that’s what makes it so exciting when you’re thinking about it. It’s been 20 years, so we’ll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Crash Team Racing when Nitro-Fueled comes out, which I think is the best moment to release it.”

“I can’t wait for people to see it, play it. We put our heart and soul into making these games. And for me, it’s not just a remaster, it needs to be a true love letter to what Crash Team Racing was. What I mean by that is with so much improvement that’s coming with the Nitro-Fueled, by having the upgraded graphics, upgraded animations, and upgraded visual fidelity, we’ll also bring it online for everybody as well, and that’s what makes me so excited.”

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled will be available for $40 at launch. However, if you wish to purchase a deluxe edition of the game, you can buy the Nitros Oxide Edition that will cost you $60. The deluxe edition will contain the full game, and unlock the titular boss character and his unusual kart at the start of the game.
