Game description: Crash hits the track in his fastest adventure yet--Crash Nitro Kart. Kidnapped by the ruthless Emperor Velo and forced to race in his galactic coliseum, Crash must race his way to victory in order to save the Earth from destruction--but it won't be easy, as he must compete against foes both old and new before a final showdown with Velo himself. Crash Nitro Kart mixes 18 rollercoaster raceways, devastating weapons, a variety of single and multiplayer modes and maps, and customizable arenas, and a cast of unique characters into a game that showcases kart-racing at its best.

Known Issues

Bottom of the screen blur

  • Workaround: The issue has been fixed as of git build pcsx2-v1.5.0-dev-407, for earlier versions use native resolution or software renderer to avoid the issue.

Blackscreen at boot

  • Description: Game freezes on the first loading screen.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Emulation Settings > Speedhacks tab, and disable the "MTVU (Multi-Threaded microVU1)" speedhack.
