Spyro Reignited Trilogy's retail relese requires an 8.7 GB download

Spyro no!

Well gang, the news is in. After much speculation, we now know for sure that the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy requires a download. This has been confirmed by a user on Reddit who has access to the game. While the back of the box says you'll need at least 10 GB, the file download itself is 8.7 GB. This comes from the Euro version of the game, and we already suspected the North American version would require a download as well.

No one knows whether the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy requires a download or not

This shouldn't be so complicated

This whole situation has become a mess, and the confusion has only grown since the initial reveal.

Will the physical version of Spyro Reignited Trilogy require a download? It all depends on what retailer you look at. Some online stores feature cover art that state a download is required. Others have a version of the cover that doesn't make mention of a download. The situation is different depending on what region of the world you're looking at as well. Some retailers make it seem like the North American version will require a download, but the European version will not.

The only thing we know for a fact is what we posted earlier today. Nintendo.com has Spyro Reignited Trilogy listed as taking up 6.3 GB. It would be pretty crazy for all three games to fit into that file size, considering how the PS4 version took up nearly 70 GB when all was said and done. Will there be a supplemental download for the eShop version outside of the 6.3 GB mentioned? Hopefully we find out all these details before Sept. 2nd, 2019, which is when the game launches.

Thanks to operationgamer17 for the heads up!

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled updates, content additions, grand prix event, and new features coming July 3rd, 2019, patch notes shared

A massive update

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled has a big round of new content on the way, and it's set to launch July 3rd, 2019. A full rundown of what the update includes has been shared by the developers, which you can find below.

The update is set to go live on July 3*, along with the first Grand Prix**, the amazing Nitro Tour. Below are details of what will be included in the patch.

Features and Content Additions:

1. Introduction of the Grand Prix content:

The Nitro Tour Grand Prix will be going live and you can begin earning Nitro Points and unlocking a variety of bonus customization content by completing challenges found within the Grand Prix menu†.

“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. You will also be able to earn additional new items including karts, skins, stickers, decal, and paint jobs!

Note: Tawna and the items described above can only be earned for a limited time by completing Grand Prix challenges while connected to the internet. Once the current Grand Prix season ends, they will no longer be available to earn through Grand Prix challenges until they may appear in the Pit Stop at a later date.

2. Introduction of Online Leaderboards:
Leaderboards will be added to the Grand Prix Menu.

· Nitro Point Online Leaderboard

You can earn Nitro Points by completing challenges accessible in the Grand Prix menu. The more Nitro Points you gather, the higher you’ll climb the leaderboard!

· 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†. You receive more points the higher your placement is when each race is over (first is the most, and eighth place is the least). The Leaderboard is unlocked after you finish your first online race.

Leaderboard rewards will be distributed on the first day following the Grand Prix and will reset at the end of each Grand Prix season.

3. The Pit Stop

A variety of new content will be added to the Pit Stop including karts, characters, character skins, decals, paint jobs, wheels, and kart stickers that can be redeemed with Wumpa Coins†. Don’t forget to check the Pit Stop to see refreshed content!

When visiting the Pit Stop, you’ll notice that items that were added as part of the Nitro Tour Grand Prix have little Nitro cannisters over their icons. You’ll notice the same thing in the customization menu over the same icons. This small Nitro cannister with a percentage tied to it denotes the extra Nitro Point boost you’ll get whenever completing challenges with these customization options equipped. The percentage increase stacks with each customization item you have equipped. So get collecting, and get stacking!

As a special call-out to some of the new additions, the “Nitro Squad” characters Ami, Megumi, Isabella, and Liz can be redeemed using Wumpa Coins in the Pit Stop and flags from nations around the world will be added as kart stickers.

4. Online
Podium animations will be added to online matches when you finish in the top 3 of an online multiplayer race.

5. User Interface Improvements

6. Wumpa Coin Earn Rate

Adjustments will be made to the Wumpa Coin earn rate, and additional information on the earn rate will be added to the end-of-race report, so you can know how you got to your number.

7. Character Icons

The mini-map icons and racer icons will now represent the character skin that you have equipped.
