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!

Great, the single player mode in crash team racing is awesome. If nintendo could put an adventure mode in MK, the single we have now could be called arcade mode. It's the only missing thing in the MK franchise

Totally agreed. Mission Mode in MKDS was close enough- it’d be great if they applied that sensibility to a full adventure mode in MK.

MK is a silly enough game as it is; I don’t think a proper adventure mode would dilute the next game at all should such a mode be included. Adventure mode is one of the big reasons why I always enjoyed CTR more than MK64 back in the day.

Or Nintendo could just make a Diddy Kong Racing sequel...
