by Rainier on April 26, 2010 @ 6:04 p.m. PDT

Faithful to the original game concept, Moto Racer DS will be the first true multi-discipline motorbike game, for the NDS. Moto Racer DS features 4 different disciplines: Moto GP, Traffic, Freestyle, and Supercross.The exciting arcade gameplay is now powered by the use of the stylus, and the multi-player mode up to 6 riders using WiFi!

It’s high time to give you more of what Moto Racer DS has in its guts! In respect to its roots Moto Racer DS is the only motor bike game that is truly multi-disciplinary: Moto GP, Traffic, Supercross or Freestyle. Warm up the stylus and get ready to burn out, take radical curves, and pull-off crazy tricks. Whether you are a racer or just a free styler, whether you are a good old racing track warrior or a wild street racer... you will get what you need with Moto Racer DS.

Moto Racer DS features a unique online Worldwide Ranking System for comparing scores with others from around the world. Players can register and create a rider profile, entering their Moto Racer DS code that can be found after completing a time trial race.

Players can compete in four thrilling race modes, using the unique Stylus Precision Handling (SPH) to control speed, manoeuvring and perform impressive tricks.

The intuitive and effective SPH allows players to experience the excitement of racing from a different perspective. The stylus can be used for rapid acceleration, measured braking, crazy jumps and extreme stunts. For those who prefer the traditional method of racing, the D-pad can also be used to tear around the various circuits at lightening speed.

In the Freestyle arena, daredevil tricks including Nack Nack, Superman and Kiss of Death can be expertly carried out using the SPH. This innovative control method can be used to perfect landings and thrusts on the Super Cross tracks, such as Hula Whoops, Mud Arena and Sky Runner.

The SPH will assist in executing sharp manoeuvres in Traffic mode, enabling players to dodge the oncoming vehicles that hurtle towards them. Racers can also achieve mind blowing acceleration through the beautiful environments of Granite Valley, Eternal Sunset and Gasworth Castle on the Grand Prix circuits.

Moto Racer DS provides superb experiences for players looking for entertainment options that can be enjoyed by the whole family,” said Christinna Bullard, Regional Account Manager at SouthPeak.
