Moto Racer returns

Influential PSone racer reborn on DS

Publisher Nobilis has revealed that it will be releasing a brand new Moto Racer game for DS later this year.

The original Moto Racer was a PlayStation and PC game released in 1997. It combined both dirt and street bikes into one comprehensive package. Lovely.

A number of sequels followed until developer Delphine Software International went bust in 2003.

This time developer Artefacts (we don't know either) has taken over the production and promises to be faithful to the original concept.

It will feature four different disciplines: Moto GP, Traffic, Freestyle and Supercross, and support six player multi-player mode using WiFi.

Take a look at the video to the right. Don't be fooled by the archive footage stuff at the beginning - there's actual gameplay footage in there after a bit.
