IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – JANUARY 13, 2009 – TrackMania®DS ships with over 100 tracks out of the box: pulse-pounding race courses filled with loops, ramps, drops, half-pipes, and more! Unlike other racing games, where the experience ends when you’ve mastered every stage, TrackMania DS provides tons of replayability. Included with the game is the most powerful race course designer ever to grace a handheld, offering players a full 3-D interface, touch screen interaction, and nearly limitless possibilities.

Players can design the courses of their dreams, using a wide variety of different track parts for practically unlimited combinations of high-flying jumps, gravity-defying loop-de-loops, and thrilling boost pads. Moreover, some parts must be unlocked in the Shop using “Coppers,” the game’s reward system for winning races, offering gamers an incentive to keep on playing. With three different race types and an assortment of customization options-ranging from time of day to the number of laps-making amazing tracks could not be easier. The thrills never cease, the possibilities are endless. Dream it, design it… Drive it!

TrackMania DS releases on March 17, 2009 with an MSRP of $29.99.
