TRACKMANIA ON NINTENDO DS, THE FIRST VIDEO!

Post by Focushome » 01 Aug 2008 08:56

The most fun and exciting driving game over the past several years is now heading to the Nintendo DS™. Far from a hardcore driving simulation, TrackMania is based on the fun and the spectacular aspects of racing. In TrackMania DS, you will drive at mind-blowing speeds in hi-octane racers on incredible tracks made of jumps, loops, turbo boost pads and many other crazy design elements.

TrackMania DS not only has a fantastic solo campaign with three great game modes and over one hundred original circuits - it also comes with an incredible 3D track editor that allows you to use the stylus to intuitively create your own tracks from hundreds of different design blocks. Players will be able to test and improve their unique creations in real-time and even to share them with one another, giving the game infinite interest and replay value.

All this is illustrated today with a video that shows all the potential of the game and the quality of the adaptation for the Nintendo handheld console.

We are also releasing 9 new images of TrackMania DS as well as a full fact sheet about the game, which you may download below.

Published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Firebrand (developers of “Create & Race” for the DS), TrackMania DS is due for release on Nintendo DS at the end of 2008.

That looks AWESOME! Good enough for me to download the Teaser and Trailer from Gamertrailers! No wait -- GREATER! Finally... a compact and portable way to play the PC game we all know and love, better yet you gotta 2 screens! The screens are small. It actually makes sense to put the name of the challenge, the time and competitor's (multiplayer) checkpoint times, targets, best times, personal times, the works!

I doubt you'll be able to use PC tracks on the DS, since DS will probably have less blocks. I didn't see any of the complicated TMU blocks there anyway.

Maybe they should consider the consoles. The game would be a blast on PS3, but this is a great start.

Yeah me2, Console is the last place for TM.
A DS version has a reason because it's now portable and you've got a touchscreen but on the console you have any of these things ...

Yes, the touchscreen is why the DS is really the only good console for TM. Well, maybe the Wii could work too, with that controller, but it'd be a bit strange still ^^
