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
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

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.
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.
