Build your own tracks and race on them with licensed cars. It's playable online, too.
As of right now, this game has only been announced for Europe. The Race Driver series is better known domestically as ToCA Race Driver, and seeing as how this is a perfectly fine game that yanks might appreciate, expect to hear details about this title coming to North America in the near future. For now, Europeans have another reason to be happy.
The full announcement press release is below.
IT'S THE COMPLETE RACE CIRCUIT CONSTRUCTION KIT AS CODEMASTERS BRINGS RACE DRIVER: CREATE & RACE EXCLUSIVELY TO NINTENDO DS™
The experience of racing the world’s most powerful cars with a twist…
As many twists and turns as you want
Wednesday, April 18, 2007 – Enabling race drivers to create their own championship circuits, Codemasters today announces Race Driver: Create & Race, an original title in the exhilarating motorsport series, coming exclusively to Nintendo DS this summer.
Race Driver: Create & Race has been designed from the ground up for Nintendo DS and lets players thrash the most formidable sports cars through closely-fought races on the world’s most prestigious circuits… and then lets players create their very own circuits with a full track construction kit.
Using the Nintendo DS stylus, the game’s track editor lets players select and place race track elements, such as hairpin corners, long straights and chicanes, to design unique circuits. Once all the pieces are placed to perfection, players can take to their track and experience exactly what it’s like in aggressive multiple car races.
In addition to the track editor, the game features 32 real-world circuits – from Silverstone and the Nurburgring to Bathurst – and 25 officially licensed race cars, including the Koenig GT, the AMG Mercedes C Klasse D™, and the Chevrolet Silverado Truck.
aking use of the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi connection capabilities, players can challenge others to races on the game’s official tracks as well as the circuits of their creation. Race Driver: Create & Race also enables up to four players to go head-to-head in races gamesharing from only one cartridge. Further championships and cars can be unlocked from the World Tour Mode and then raced in realtime online and ad hoc multiplayer modes.
