NFSU2: Nintendo-DS Version now official Thursday, 27.01.2005
NFS Underground 2Recently there were just rumours, but now it is official: Electronic Arts today announced that Need for Speed Underground 2 for the Nintendo DS (Nintendo Dual Screen) handheld game system will hit retail stores nationwide this spring. Gamers can dominate the tuner racing underground with new features and gameplay only made possible by the Nintendo DS.

"Nintendo DS is a great platform that helps us offer Need for Speed fans a new way to play games on the go," said Nick Ferguson, assistant producer, EA Canada. "Whether it's customizing your own ride, racing friends via the wireless multiplayer, or using the touch-screen nitrous controls for that extra boost, Need for Speed Underground 2 for the Nintendo DS really puts the power of tuner racing in the palm of your hands."

Utilizing the handheld's touch screen technology, gamers can create their own custom vinyl designs in the "Design Studio" and apply them to the car for a unique tuner racing look. Players can also manage their nitrous usage during a race by using the touch-sensitive panel to control the power of their boost. For racers looking to show off their skills and flaunt their rides, Need for Speed Underground 2 for the Nintendo DS supports four players via the wireless link. Now gamers can race head-to-head with friends anywhere, at anytime.

Hot: Details about NFS Most Wanted! Wednesday, 19.01.2005
As we reported a couple of times, there are many rumours about the new Need for Speed title "Need for Speed: Most Wanted". Now the onlinemagazine SPOnG could get some exclusive details:

Most Wanted will be available for Xbox 2, Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, PC, PSP and "Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS" in late 2005. A pleasant added value news snippet details a "…simultaneous ship, with the Xbox2 platform", which indicates a late 2005 release for Xbox2 too.

Most Wanted takes the series back to its roots, with police chases making up the body of the gameplay. We expect the game to feature a much greater emphasis on movie style police getaway missions, in levels specifically designed to emphasise this aspect of the game, with gameplay focussing on eluding police pursuit vehicles.

There is also a rap-sheet system, in which a player’s notoriety is upped by performing more dangerous manoeuvres in the view of following police.

Eight game modes are promised:
- Multiple point races
- Toll booth races
- Speed trap photos
- Outrun
- Outrun best route
- Circuit
- Sprint
- Knockout – Cost to state, pursuit milestones and headlines Milestones

Four ‘distinct regions’ will be offered, along with real time weather and an evolving environment. There will be no racing during the night-time, with all the action taking place between sun up and sunset.

Online play will be included with what is described as a ‘similar feature set to NFSU2’ though this time, world-wide play will be included with no conflict between the North American and European versions.

Around 100 motors will be on offer. ‘Asian import (tuners), exotics, American muscle and Euro imports,” as detailed by EA.

So we just can hope that this source is reliable, because this information looks really very promising.
