Spyro the Dragon is gliding into Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, as we've known for a while, but Activision has now lifted the lid on the upcoming Grand Prix. Called Spyro and Friends, the latest seasonal event coming to the colourful kart racer sees the two platforming heroes cross paths.

From 30th August, you'll be able to unlock the purple dragon himself, as well as purchase other Spyro characters like Hunter and Gnasty Gnorc. The new track, named Spyro Circuit, will become available to all players, and the screenshots over on PlayStation Blog are looking great.

As you can see in the above image, there's typically plenty to unlock via challenges and more to buy with Wumpa Coins from the Pit Stop. Whatever your feelings are on the controversial microtransactions, it looks like Beenox has put a lot of effort into this crossover content.
