Revogamers sits down with the developers of the title and discuss the series' potential on Wii.
The Spanish website Revogamers talked to the developers of TrackMania at Gamescom and discussed the upcoming Wii release of the game.
The team feels that TrackMania for Wii was a logical choice due to its accessible, arcade feel involving toy cars racing through impossible tracks, which is vastly different from the realistic racers seen on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The Wii version will feature three modes: Single race, track editor, and multiplayer. The title will feature over 200 tracks, while the track editor will feature all of the elements seen in the PC version adapted to fit the Wii's technology. The tracks will feature different track settings, ranging from snow to island. Each track will feature physics that will interact with the car's own design, creating endless potential for online racing according to the developers. They hope to accomplish online play with up to 16 players, with an eight-player minimum being possible.
One other aspect of online play is the ability to exchange tracks with other players in a manner similar to EA's Boom Blox Bash Party. The developers have mentioned that they are in talks with Nintendo in hopes to create a system that allows easy connection with other players.
TrackMania for Wii will also feature split-screen multiplayer for up to 4 players for the first time in the series, and players will be able to choose from different methods of control.
