Cartoon-style car racing arcade in which the player controls characters from the Crash Bandicoot universe, most of whom race in karts. All kinds of weapons, shields, traps and powerups can help you in your race inside gigantic coliseum of ruthless dictator Emperor Velo XXVII.

Description

The game is the ninth installment in the Crash Bandicoot series. It is an indirect sequel to Crash Team Racing and the first full motion video based game in the series. The game's story centers on the abduction of Crash Bandicoot, along with other characters in the series, by the ruthless dictator Emperor Velo XXVII. Threatening to destroy the Earth if they refuse, he forces them all to race in his gigantic coliseum for the entertainment of his subjects.

While racing, the player can accelerate, steer, reverse, brake, hop or use weapons and power-ups with the game controller's analog stick and buttons.

Four distinct types of crates are scattered throughout the tracks and arenas of Crash Nitro Kart. "Item Crates" usually come in sets of four. The player can obtain a weapon or power-up by driving through an Item Crate and breaking it apart. The player can only carry one weapon or power-up at a time. "Multiplier Crates" are usually found in hard-to-reach spots on the tracks. These special crates contain three of a certain weapon or power-up. "Wumpa Crates" carry "Wumpa Fruit" that strengthens the player's weapons and power-ups if ten of them are obtained. "Activation Crates" don't give the player anything when they are driven through; instead, they activate either a trap that can slow down the other racers or a boost pad.
