TrackMania DS reveals its track editor in video!

Post by Focushome » 16 Oct 2008 09:48

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 connection.

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.

Track creation and sharing are all showcased in this extended video, available for download at the links below.

Published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Firebrand (makers of “Create & Race” for DS), TrackMania DS will be released in November on Nintendo DS.

So there is a local multiplayer mode, but how about the online multiplayer mode? It is still unclear whether this is included

edit: As the Edge review says, Wifi linkup is an aim for any sequels. So thats a no.

Holy **** a DS racer that might be better than ok!

TrackMania, the series of racing games focusing on fun and frantic racing, now makes its debut on the Nintendo DS. Far from hardcore driving simulations, TrackMania is based on the fun and the spectacular aspect of racing. With TrackMania DS, you drive at mind-blowing speeds on incredible tracks made of jumps, loops, turbo boost pads and many other crazy design elements. Just like the renowned PC version, TrackMania DS offers a track editor that lets you create your own unique and exciting tracks from hundreds of different design blocks, giving the game near-infinite replay value.

* Three single player modes - Race, Platform and Puzzle provide a variety of challenges for even the most experienced racer
* Single cartridge multiplayer - Players can compete with up to four friends using one cartridge for a more personal and competitive race
* An incredible 3D track editor - A huge collection of track sections, including loops, jumps and twists, is available as players create their own tracks for the most insane races
* Three TrackMania environments – Desert, Rally and Stadium environments offer unique styles of gameplay, each with their own vehicle type to ensure the best racing experience

Previews have been really positive, and I reckon those yearning for a fun DS racer will be content with this title. Also its damn perdy for a DS title. No word about online sadly.
