From December 30 to January 5, Nintendo Switch Online members can try out a trial version of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
Nintendo has been using the Nintendo Switch Online membership to offer gamers tons of different games to play. Obviously, it allows you to play online and gives you access to various games from Nintendo’s deep vault of old titles. However, one of the best things they have done with games like Overwatch is give members free weekend passes to try games. Next on the record is Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. The deal runs from December 30 to January 5 and gives you access to local and online multiplayer. Check it out.
On Dec 30 at 11 AM PT until Jan 5 at 11:59 PM PT, #NintendoSwitchOnline members can trial the full version of Cr ash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, including local + online multiplayer!

Crash Team Racing has been around for a year and a half. So it’s not like you’re trying a new game or anything. With that said, if you skipped the launch at launch and are looking for a party racer, this gives you a chance to give it a try. More importantly, this is a great thing for families who just got a Switch for the holidays. CTR is a solid family title. This will allow you to see if your child is interested before spending $ 40.
Altogether, it seems like a great marketing decision from Nintendo and Activision. With how popular the Switch has been as a holiday gift, it makes perfect sense to drop something like this just as we move into the new year. And as much as I personally can’t stand anything related to Crash, I’ve been told that there are weirdos in the world who like it. To each his own.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will be available to members of Nintendo Switch Online from December 30 to January 5. The game is currently available on PS4 and Xbox One.
