Majesco has dished up the first screens for Powerbike, a DS racing game it's talking up quite strongly.
The game is being developed by Tornado Studios with Majesco calling it an "intense motorcycle racer that features death-defying stunts, intense police chases and competitive multiplayer modes".
That all sounds well and good, but the screens don't really back up the words. It makes you wonder if they've seen the likes of Mario Kart running on DS. Still, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Here's some more blurb talking things up:
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.
