Since Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was announced at The Game Awards a couple of months ago, there were a few concerns about the Switch version.

Any remaining fears can now be put to rest. A number of retailers have opened pre-orders, including Amazon and GameStop. Amazon UK has it here.

Like other versions, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is coming to Switch on June 21 as previously announced. We also have the game’s boxart above.

Develop reports in its latest issue that Beenox is “no longer working on the Spider-Man IP”. That makes sense, as their output has been limited to Skylanders over the past few years. This year specifically, Beenox was in charge of Skylanders SuperChargers Racing for 3DS and Wii.

Beenox creative director Thomas Wilson told Develop about the studio’s transition:
