An exciting race down memory lane.

About half a year after announcing the launch of a remastered version of Crash Team Racing, Canadian game developer Beenox has finally made Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled available today for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Nintendo Switch and the family of Xbox One consoles, including the Xbox One X.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is largely based on the popular kart racing game Crash Team Racing, developed by Naughty Dog for the original PlayStation in 1999.

The new version has the same characters — including Tawna — which are unlockable, in addition to karts, various customization items and a new track. Players will race off on the first track called Twilight Tour.

The official launch of the game follows a test drive during the E3 convention in Los Angeles.

The creators of the game even went as far as hosting a Grand Prix event for players worldwide. The first Grand Prix will kick off on July 3. “Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was designed to deliver fun in unexpected and exciting ways. The Grand Prix does that by giving players a reason to fall in love with the game over and over again,” Thomas Wilson, co-studio head at Beenox, said in a statement.

Beenox, who created the Spider Man video game franchise, is a unit of Call of Duty publisher Activision. With the game’s official launch, Beenox said on Twitter that it is monitoring feedback and making adjustments to the game. The company’s remark comes as players pointed out issues with the online multiplayer mode. The company said an “immediate fix is already in the works” to address the issue.

Gaming review website Kotaku pointed out that when on multiplayer mode, it takes a bit of time to wait for other players to join the game before the race starts. The website highlighted the load times in the game, which it described as “atrocious,” especially on Switch. Kotaku said the load time is better with the PlayStation 4 (which can take about 20 seconds) than on Switch.

Nonetheless, the website said the graphics are top notch when compared side by side with the original ‘90s version.
