Breaking the established rules of the racing genre, the TrackMania
series has created a whole new set of road rules in just a few years and proven
that it is far more than just another racing game. Created by French studio
Nadeo, TrackMania continues to attract millions of players worldwide.
With only one month to go before its November launch on the Nintendo DS™, we
are pleased to unveil a new trailer for the game, showcasing the famous
TrackMania track editor, which has been thoroughly recreated on the DS!
With more than 100 official tracks of increasing difficulty awaiting players
across three different game modes, TrackMania DS offers an incredible amount of
replay value. Thanks to the included track editor, the game also allows players
to create their own tracks to race in solo or multiplayer mode and share over
Nintendo Local WiFi mode.
With a large library of over 300 construction blocks available, from super
speed boosts to curving loops, as well as blocks straight from skate parks and
the overflowing imagination of the TrackMania developers, the fun is
never-ending, with an infinite number of new track possibilities limited only
by the player’s imagination. These cool new tracks can be saved onto the game
cartridge and freely exchanged with friends thanks to the local WiFi
TrackMania is an addictive game that allows you to race at mind-blowing speeds
on spectacular tracks containing a variety of turbo boosts, jumps, loops and
other extravagant track elements. Players can quickly create and save their own
tracks with a very intuitive track editor, guaranteeing extraordinary lasting
appeal and endless replay possibilities. With precise handling, exciting
physics, a huge range of tracks, unparalleled fun in solo- or multiplayer, and
player-created tracks, TrackMania pushes all the right buttons to make it a
unique and thoroughly enjoyable racing game.
TrackMania is now set to launch on consoles for the first time, exploding onto
the Nintendo DS™ and pushing the portable format to its limits.
Adapting TrackMania for the Nintendo DS was a real challenge. The first
official announcement of the title raised many questions from the specialist
press, mostly concerned about the console's ability to offer a game that holds
its own in comparison to a popular and content-rich PC version. Those fears
were quickly allayed, as enthusiastic comments rapidly followed as the game was
presented at different stages of development and playable versions were shown
during key international game conferences.
From the moment players first enter into TrackMania DS there is no doubt: this
is pure TrackMania and true to the spirit of the series in every detail.
Firebrand, the English development studio in charge of bringing TrackMania's
pulse-pounding racing to the DS, specializes in racing games for the platform,
has pushed the console to its limits, implementing all the elements that make
TrackMania games successful. Everything is here… the much-beloved original
gameplay, precision handling, fun for all with thrilling races against friends
in multiplayer mode, and an addictive solo mode that sees you trying to beat
increasingly established records.
