Diddy Kong Racing DS is just another classic to be added to the portable wireless community, complete with new tracks, upgradeable vehicles and a course-design mode.

The Diddy Kong Racing for Nintendo 64 was ranked among the top racing games. The newest addition to this genre of games, Diddy Kong Racing DS will be available February 7 and is expected to race to the top of the charts as well. Players will meet new characters and use gamer tags and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection capabilities, as this DS version will re-energize fans who remember the original, while attracting new ones to join in.

George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications said: “Nintendo does mass-appeal racing games better than anyone. Diddy Kong Racing's irresistible combination of characters, vehicles and adventures is sure to drive fans wild."

The story goes something like this: the action takes place on Timber's Island, which has been invaded by an evil space pig; unlike traditional racing games, the game is a racing-adventure, in which players can explore the island and complete a series of racing challenges while piloting a car, a hovercraft or a plane. Featuring 38 different tracks and upgradeable vehicles with improvements in speed, durability and looks, players can even create their own tracks using touch-screen controls and share them with others. Up to 6 players can compete online via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and eight can race via local DS Download Play, even if only one player has a game card.

Diddy Kong Racing DS is available February 7. For more information about the game, visit this site.
