NITROS is a 2000 racing/fighting game for the Nintendo 64, and Fantasize Studios' first game. It was also partially developed by Spark Co.


In the not-too-distant future, a new type of racing has be invented- the Nitro Run. 16 robotic warriors built to hover over rough terrain and use their weapons to beat each other down are pit against each other in the grandest races. However, when being transported to their next race, the World Cup team's transport ship crashes onto an uncharted tropic world. Using only their programmed instincts, they race to a strange structure that they seem drawn to.



  • R: Accelerate
  • D-Pad/Analog Stick: Steer
  • L: Brakes
  • C buttons: Attack (attack will be directed in direction of C button used)
  • A: Jump
  • B: Boost


The gameplay combines fighting with racing in unique ways. You choose 1 of 16 racers (12 default, 4 unlockables), each in one of 4 classes with a unique weapon. Such weapons include swords, axes, blasters, and more. Each race goes through 3 laps before ending, with each race having 12 racers. There is also a Time Trial mode where you can test your best time against developer ghosts or your own past records.
