'TrackMania' (ALL) Making Its Wii Debut at GamesCom

TrackMania is a hybrid 3D racing game filled with progressively difficult tracks, a variety of competitive modes, and the ability to create your own tracks using building blocks (tunnels, land transitions, signs, turbos) and share them with other users.

Firebrand Games, known for TrackMania DS and GRID on NDS, announce that their first Wii title, Wii TrackMania, will be showcased on the Focus Home Interactive booth at the upcoming Gamescom event to be held in Cologne between 19th – 23rd August 2009.

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.”

Firebrand have substantially enhanced and updated the core engine technology, called Octane, to ensure the their first title on the Wii is equally as impressive and lightning fast.
