Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is now available on Xbox One and other console platforms. According to Activision, the game is built from the ground up and remasters the original Crash Team Racing game by bringing the characters, karts, tracks, and arenas to modern console graphics.

The game will get more content on July 3 when the "Grand Prix" kicks off with free downloadable seasonal content for anyone who has purchased the game. This includes a new themed track, themed characters, and other customization options.

Beenox's Thomas Wilson said the following about the project his team has been working on for many years.

The wait is finally over, and we couldn't be more thrilled that Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is ready for its inaugural ride. A lot of care and attention to detail went into developing this game for fans of the original Crash Team Racing twenty years ago, and new fans who expect a modern kart racing experience. Staying true to the original Crash Team Racing games, while adding so much more content and creating a living, breathing world that just wasn't possible on first-generation platforms has been a true labor of love!

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is available for $40 on the Microsoft Store. There's a $60 "Nitros Oxide Edition" which comes with a lot of cosmetic items.
