WIIU TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition Coming to Wii U

German developer, keen games, is planning to release TNT Racers as a downloadable game for Wii U. The game fills a gap in the Nintendo eShop market, as enjoyable combat-racing games are rare on this platform. TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition is expected to hit the eShop on September 26th, with a price tag of $7.99. This project is handled by keen without a publisher, marking the Frankfurt studio's first foray into self publishing

TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition is a battle-racing game in the tradition of classics like Micro Machines or R.C. Pro-Am. It supports single player as well as two, three or four players in front of the Wii U. The race tracks are shown in colorful 3D, the camera following the cars in an isometric view, from behind and above. Players who fall back far enough to vanish from the screen instantly lose the round. Yet, losers aren't done playing: They can continue to harass their opponents. Players pushed off the screen return as shadow cars able to cause mischief with traps and extra weapons.

It's great fun for a Sunday afternoon with friends - and a good experience for solo players racing against the AI. TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition offers incredible replay value: 26 beautiful and distinct tracks, 45 challenges, 16 cars types and seven game modes. The game modes, from tournaments to a custom mode, where everything's decided by the player from AI strength to weather effects, enable players to experiment with gameplay elements or form tournaments.

"We think the Wii U is a great platform - and are pleased take our first steps in self publishing with the support of our friends at Nintendo. We are confident that the enhanced Nitro Machines Edition of our popular racer will be entertaining for Nintendo fans everywhere", says Jan Joeckel, Managing Director of keen games.
