Top Gear on the DS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alex Terris

In a press release late Monday night, Australian developer Tantalus Interactive have announced the development of Top Gear: Downforce alongside Japanese publisher Kemco.

The game, debuting in late 2006, features 3D modeling in a top down view, very robust vehicle physics, and the ability to place various hazards onto the track by using the DS's unique touchpad.

Though not many details were given, it was also announced that the title would feature wireless multiplayer racing capability and the ability to share data between users, thus becoming the second known wi-fi compatible racing game for Nintendo DS, alongside Mario Kart DS.

Top officials at Tantalus seem to be very excited to announce the new game. In the words of Tantalus CEO Tom Crago: "We loved the original Top Gear on N64, and of course our rally title on GBA was a big success. This time around we’re attempting something completely different. We want to create a racing game that feels perfectly at home on the DS platform, something built from the ground up to exploit the cool features of the hardware."

Sharing Crago's enthusiasm was Kemco's President Masakatsu Hirose, stating "Top Gear Rally on GBA rates among Kemco’s most successful releases. Many people enjoyed this title, and we know that with Tantalus we can create a new game within the franchise that will be just as popular."

More details about Top Gear: Downforce will be made available at E3 2006 next month.

Everybody Loves Wii by chad60 at Wed 13 Jun 00:16

Definitely, Wii has become as the most popular and most sought after gaming console nowadays. It is different from the usual gaming equipment that we used to know of. Many factors were given as to the reason for resurgence of this most innovative games machine over a very short period of time. One is the cost which makes it even more affordable to those who are tight on budget. And the other are the games that went along with the product that requires a different method of playing them. It's a fun gaming machine and is the reason why it is very attractive to gamers and non-gamers of all ages.
