Appointments to view the game, and to discuss options on future development opportunities, are being taken now.

Mark Greenshields, Firebrand CEO, commented“Firebrand has always strived to develop racing engines that make the current generation of machines do things that no-one thought possible 18 months ago. Gamescom is Europe’s highest profile gathering of industry execs, and we want to take this opportunity to demonstrate to a global audience that Firebrand are still at the cutting edge of race game technology and design, and that we are ready for the challenges of 2010 and beyond." He went on "We altered people’s perception of just what the DS could do with Race Driver, GRID and TrackMania DS, and TrackMania Wii is no less jaw dropping. If you're a publisher looking to tap into the lucrative racing genre then we can help give you a competitive advantage over your peers.”

TrackMania DS scored impressive reviews within the specialist press, including an 8/10 from Edge, 86% from the Official Nintendo Magazine UK and 80% from both Wired magazine and Games™.
