Multiple Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled character skins see name changes following complaints of racial insensitivity

Quietly patched just a few days back

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled recently got an update, and there's something of note in the tweaks that wasn't mentioned in the patch notes. Some character skins have gone through name changes after some players pointed out that the names could be considered racially insensitive.

The biggest changes come to Tawna, Crash's former girlfriend. One of Tawna's skins was named 'Watermelon Tawna,' which some players took offense to, as Tawna has darker fur and was wearing a watermelon t-shirt. While artwork for the skin remains the same, the name has now been changed to 'Summertime Tawna.'

There are other skins which have been changed as well. The 'White Tawna' has been renamed to 'White Tiger Tawna,' and other skins with 'Black' or 'White' have been changed.

You knew she'd be chaotic

Lust for Darkness lacks an inverse control option

Lust for better options

The "psychological horror" title Lust for Darkness hit the Switch last week, and players are finding out one of the greatest horrors in the game comes from the controls, and not the content. Lust for Darkness is a first person title, yet it does not include an option to invert look controls. Hopefully that gets added in an update, as it seems like a major oversight to not include that feature.
