Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a fantastic kart racer that has done incredibly well critically. However, one big drawback for the game on the Nintendo Switch was the long load times you would have to experience. Beenox, the developers behind the game, had promised an update would be delivered to help with the long downtime. Well, thanks to a boost mode update on the Switch version of the game, those loading time have been cut by 10-15 seconds.

The 1.0.5 update can be downloaded right now. Before it, to load into a race it would take around 40 or so seconds to finally load into it. After the update, the load time was reduced to around 26-27 seconds. It still might be a little long. But at least you won’t be waiting almost an entire minute to pop into a race.

This wouldn’t be the first time that a boost mode update has increased load times for a Switch game. When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey received an update so that they could support Labo VR, both of the game’s loading times were shortened as well thanks to the CPU being overclocked to run at a higher speed.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. If you want to pick this game up, you can do so right here through Amazon. If you still are a bit weary on purchasing the game, make sure to check out DualShockers’ official review.
