Crash Bandicoot's kart racing remake could be getting a ton of new racers as part of Beenox's post-launch support plan for the game. Baby Crash, Spyro, Emperor Velo, Gnasty Gnorc, and many others were all found in a recent datamine of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (opens in new tab).
A list of characters, including names from Crash Bandicoot games and Spyro the Dragon series, was featured in a thread posted on Resetera (opens in new tab), it includes all the following characters:
- Baby Coco
- Baby Cortex
- Baby Crash
- Baby N.Tropy
- Emperor Velo
- Gnasty Gnorc
- Nina Cortex
- Rilla Roo
- Von Clutch
- Willie Wumpa Cheeks
Beenox had already confirmed that Spyro would be coming down the road, but this list has far more names than previously mentioned. We don't know if we'll see all these faces in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled as some of them could be in the games files for other reasons. Some could have even been cut altogether. I can't wait to dominate the track as Spyro, though.
These characters look to be a part of Beenox's upcoming in-game events, one of which is already live: the Nitro Tour Grand Prix. It's the first of several seasons, Nitro Tour includes a new map, Twilight Tour, and a new playable character, Tawna Bandicoot.
