Adventure Mode would be featuring original fan-favorite character lineup of Crash, Coco, Cortex, Polar, Pura, Tiny and others. There are chance to win exciting new characters like Ripper Roo and Pinstripe Pontoroo as well.

Earning boss characters after defeating them doesn't require for anyone to wait till Gem Cups anymore and each win will reward players by unlocking valuable prizes as character skins, new kart parts or customization items.

Unlocked customization item, kart or even racer can be changed at any point when in Adventure Mode. Newcomers and seasoned veteran racers alike can jump on board with challenges like Boss Races, Relic Races, Token Races and Trophy Races.

Hitting those whacky tracks with your selected racer to collect trophies and fighting bosses before finally facing off Oxide was some high stakes for players and one of the best experience everyone remembers from the franchise.

Many who prefer racing their karts in Classic setting will still be able to earn every amazing characters, items and karts but are not allowed to change their racer or kart midway unless they are choosing to go with Nitro-Fueled instead.

Crash Team Racing is an original PlayStation title that was developed by Naughty Dog back in 1999 and everything that made CTR great in the first place are all being put together nicely in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled for an engaging experience.

Skull & Bones Delayed to 2020

Once again, Ubisoft has delayed their upcoming pirate adventure game Skull & Bones to 2020 and skipping its E3 2019 showcase.

Upcoming anticipated open-world action game Skull & Bones from developer/publisher Ubisoft was announced back at E3 2017 with an initial launch window of 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only to be delayed to 2019 last year.

However, that date is now being delayed once again and will only come out after their current fiscal year will end in March 2020. The pirate adventure will not show up at E3 2019 next month and will be released on spring next year.

RELATED: Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Announced

Ubisoft made a statement saying that it is very common for newer IPs to take more time in development phase because of creative vision and newer ideas and in May 2018, developers asked for more time to deliver an engaging experience.

According to their recent earnings report, ongoing publishing plans for SNB suggests that it may eventually arrive sometime around April 2020. Since it was pushed back to improve quality, we can only hope that it was for the best reasons.

RELATED: Rainbow Six Siege Reverse Friendly Fire Update

A video featuring producer Karl Luhe addressing this delay was posted lately by Skull & Bones official Twitter account. He talks about where they are now in terms of development and offers some behind-the-scenes look as well.



RELATED: Ghost Recon: Wildlands Operation Oracle Update

A TV show based on the game is also on its way but that wouldn't be affected by this delay in any way. Developer studio that worked on ship combat sequences of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag are working on it for their past experience.

Although getting a long-anticipated game like Skull & Bones twice after reveal is mildly frustrating but seeing Ubisoft is not rushing out an unfinished product and prioritizing quality only shows their commendable dedication to fan-service.
