Strategy and action game developer KOEI announced MONSTER RACERS, an action-packed role-playing game exclusively for Nintendo DS, for 2009.
In MONSTER RACERS, players will embark on a quest that will take them around the globe in search of monster breeds to train, nurture and race. Throughout their journeys, players will build lasting friendships with new allies, and encounter daunting challenges from a bevy of rival trainers.
The real fun comes from capturing wild monsters in their native habitats. As the player progresses, they can explore different regions, venture into secret habitats and discover more adventures.
The game's race courses are filled with challenging obstacles that will test both the players' and monsters' skills in controlling speed, jumping ability, and reaction time. With enough courage, skill and practice, players can make it to the greatest race in the world, the "Super Cup."
Using the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, players can join up to three other trainers to compete in race tournaments or to capture new monsters on safari.
Developed by KOEI Co., MONSTER RACERS is not yet rated by the ESRB. Play is for one to four players using Wireless DS Single-Card Download Play, Wireless Multi-Card Play, and via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. The suggested retail price is $29.99.
