It has become a tradition in multiplayer games that are played both locally and online. The opportunity to take advantage of a split screen to play with a friend or family member on the same console and on the same monitor to compete with players from all over the world. Mario Kart has been doing this since the Wii episode and more recently, it was Team Sonic Racing from Sega that made it possible to play this way. In less than a week, the remake of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, the new superstar in kart games, will be released on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
But in fact, is it possible to play split screen while being connected online on the remake of CTR, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled? This is the question we will answer next.
Is it possible to play Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled online with the split screen?
According to the statements of Thomas Wilson, the creative director, the answer is « yes », although this has yet to be confirmed given the lack of communication on this subject. With Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, players can expect an authentic experience (close to the original) with an adventure mode, time trial, arcade, etc. But the great new feature of this remake is the possibility to play online and compete with the whole world in kart races that are undeniably fun.
According to Wilson :
« Playing on a split screen is a lot of fun, but participating in online races is even more fun! »
Although this statement does not give any real meaning to the presence of an online split-screen option, when making declarations, it implied it. In any case, it remains less than a week to determine whether or not Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has a split-screen mode with the ability to play online with a friend or family member while being on the same game console. We will update the article accordingly when we have a precise answer.
