Tube Slider is a futuristic racing game in which players pilot sleek hovercraft around tubular tracks that twist and turn and test not only your speed, but also your ability to keep your craft in control. Choose between Grand Prix or Free Run modes as you race one of fifteen different tweaked-out vehicles around ten unique and highly detailed elevated courses. The game features an interactive Tutorial mode, and multiplayer mode for up to four players (split-screen). Grab the turbo boosts before your opponents and don't lose control!

NDCUBE Co., Ltd. is an official second-party developer to Nintendo, formed through a joint venture between the largest advertising company in Japan,
Dentsu, and Nintendo. The company, now based out of Tokyo, was founded on March 1, 2000.

"We're thrilled to be working with a developer that has the experience and pedigree of NDCUBE," said Clint Kurahashi, executive vice president of NEC
Interchannel Ltd. "Tube Slider is an excellent first entry to what will be a great lineup from NEC."
