Although the only new games we’ve gotten of Crash Bandicoot in the last few years have just been remakes of his first four unanimously praised titles, it’s good to see him in the spotlight. Not only that, but the N. Sane Trilogy got a couple free DLC titles, and now CTR: Nitro Fueled is getting some new content as well. Players will have access to a new track, and the ability to unlock a bunch of new characters and karts!

The new characters are actually the flag girls from the game, which until now, I didn’t realize actually had names. Tawna also makes her kart racing debut, rounding out the Bandicoot Fatales and cementing her as a legitimate Crash character, and not a total throwaway.

Let’s be real, she was sorta-kinda treated as such in the original trilogy way back when. I don’t think anyone really thought twice about it when she didn’t show up in Crash 2.

I can only assume that there will be all different kinds of skins for the new characters so it will be really cool to see them all fleshed out a bit! Check out the trailer above for a little more info on the update and let us know which character is gonna be your new main!
