Atlus Revs Up TrackMania DS for US Release


Atlus does RPGs and often does them very well. But other genres? It’s rare that they publish titles of the non-role-playing persuasion, which makes today’s announcement that Atlus USA has signed up the North American publishing rights for TrackMania DS all the more surprising. Of course, Atlus still likes to refer it as an RPG, “Racing Powerhouse of a Game” that is. You gotta love Atlus!

TrackMania DS is getting tuned up for a release in North America on March 17th, 2009. Learn more at
