Crash Team Racing: How to unlock Tawna Bandicoot and the trophy girls

Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy Tawna Bandicoot

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled arrives in just three days, and players will be able to unlock Tawna Bandicoot and the trophy girls shortly afterwards.

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane trilogy was a nostalgic rush when it first launched, yet the package simultaneously felt as if it was missing something. That missing entity was Crash Team Racing, but - fortunately - the Nitro Fueled remake will be available to play in just three days. And, as if that wasn't exciting enough, players will also be able to unlock Tawna Bandicoot and trophy girls shortly after its launch.

Crash Team Racing is developed by Beenox and published by Activision, and it will be available to play starting June 21.

The original Crash Team Racing was one of the PS1's greatest games and many believe it was always superior to Mario Kart. While I won't confirm whether Crash Bandicoot bested Nintendo's plumpy and double-chinned plumber, what I will say is that PlayStation 4 gamers should be very excited about Crash Team Racing's return.

Crash Team Racing: How to unlock Tawna Bandicoot and the trophy girls

Players won't be able to unlock Crash Bandicoot's original damsel-in-distress and the trophy girls from day one, but they will be able to starting July 3.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled officially launches June 21, and Beenox has already announced three seasons of additional and free DLC.

The remake will be supported post-launch with seasonal Grand Prix content, and it's the first package where players will be able to unlock Tawna Bandicoot and the trophy girls.

Beenox's first Grand Prix season is called the Nitro Tour, and it'll include Tawna, the trophy girls (now referred to as the Nitro Squad), and a unique race track which reimagines the Ancient Egypt and Arabian Town levels from Crash Bandicoot: Warped.

To unlock Tawna Bandicoot, players will need to complete a plethora of the Grand Prix's challenges to attain enough Nitro Points.

So long as you keep playing the game and conquering easy to hard challenges that vary from top speed to power slide, you will earn every reward that's available.

As for the trophy girls Ami, Isabella, Megumi, and Liz, you will unlock all four of them by spending Wumpa Coins.

Wumpa Coins are earned by participating in Grand Prix challenges, and they can be redeemed at the Pit Stop store that will house characters, kart sets, wheels, paint jobs, stickers, skins, and more.

Along with Tawna Bandicoot and the trophy girls, the Nitro Tour will also add unique kart parts, international-themed cosmetics, and the return of Le Chaux.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled launches June 21 for PS4 and Xbox One, and the Nitro Tour Grand Prix expansion will be available to download for free on July 3.
