  • NEW CHARACTERS: Rilla Roo and Yaya Panda enter the festivities, as well as a brand new character, Hasty – a high-flying Moose based on an infamous cut character from CTR lore.  But wait, this just in! Your favourite broadcasting duo Chick n Stew aren’t just sitting in the booth any longer – they’ll also be clucking it up and down the track in this special Grand Prix season!
  • NEW KARTS: Plow through the competition with the Snowplower, leave other racers salivating with the Candy Cone, and finally take the reins in the ultimate holiday machine with the Nitro Sleigh!
  • PIT STOP ITEMS: A Reindeer Crash Skin, Pajama Skins for Baby Crash and Coco, scrumptious Pastry wheels, holiday-themed paint jobs and stickers – there’s no shortage of new swag to celebrate the season! But wait until you see the skin to stand above them all – Winter Guardian Spyro.
  • NITRO-GAUGE CHALLENGES & REWARDS: Polar in an ugly sweater, Hasty in a slick ski-suit, and so much more, complete challenges to earn these and other new rewards in the Winter Festival Nitro Gauge.
