TrackMania hitting small screens on the Nintendo DS

Fun.  Spectacular.  Mind-blowing.  Hi-octane.  Incredible.  Crazy.  Fantastic.  These are all words TrackMania DS is using to describe its admittedly popular racing hi jinks, and a visit to your local thesaurus probably wouldn't come up with many more synonyms.  But not only will you be getting your bearings rolling through the solo campaign, you can make and share your own creations with the 3D track editor, using hundreds of different design blocks to string together with the stylus.  The video captures deft crafting and rapid sharing capabilities.  And the eight new screenshots will give you a full-frontal view of what you'll be seeing during races.  TrackMania DS is due for release on Nintendo DS at the end of 2008.



TrackMania on the Nintendo DS, the First Video!

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 nine new images of TrackMania DS as well as a full fact sheet about the game, which you may download below.
