New motorcycle game announced for DS

Powerbike to be released in time for holidays

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Aug. 19, 2008
Majesco Entertainment Company has announced a new motorcycle game for the Nintendo DS called Powerbike.

Powerbike is being developed by Tornado Studios and is expected to be released in time for the holidays.

Majesco calls Powerbike “an intense motorcycle racer that features death-defying stunts, intense police chases and competitive multiplayer modes.”

Here’s what Majesco says about Powerbike:

Powerbike brings motorcycle racing to the hand-held Nintendo DS.The perilous world of street racing is about to get a whole lot more exciting with the release of Powerbike! When an anonymous sponsor offers the resources to compete with the best street racers in the world, the only thing left to do is jump on your bike and show everyone who is boss. Speed through dangerous streets and jump trains, bridges and traffic congestion while fleeing from the cops on eight challenging courses across the desert, city, shipyard and more. Riders can earn even more cash by performing jumps, burnouts, wheelies and drifts in Stunt Mode. Go head-to-head with friends via local DS multiplayer in both Race and Stunt Mode, and use your hard earned cash to upgrade your bike's speed, acceleration, traction and stability in three different difficulty modes.

Four screenshots from Powerbike were released by Majesco, but they really don’t show much of the game outside of different backgrounds. Motorcycle.com should have a full review of Powerbike shortly after its release.
