N.A. Ships Ahoy - TrackMania

Enlight sends word that TrackMania, the construction/racing game hybrid that's already had a successful European launch, is now set to race into stores in North America as well. Here's the deal:
PARKVILLE, Md. (June 24, 2004) — Enlight, a leading entertainment software developer and publisher, announced today that it has shipped its highly anticipated hybrid racing game, TrackMania, to retail stores across North America. Reviewers across Europe have praised TrackMania, while North American gamers have awaited the arrival of this fun, strategic racing game.

In a recent article, GameSpy praised the new title saying "…it's impressive that TrackMania offers something fresh: it's not merely a racing game, but also a racing track construction set." "Whoever you are, whatever your background, no matter how old you are, TrackMania is bound to appeal," wrote PC Gameworld in a recent preview. "It presents an innocent and undiluted slice of pure fun, and that makes a refreshing change from much of the convoluted garbage that litters the shop shelves. We need more games like this!"

The North American version of Trackmania contains enhanced Internet play, a unique avatar system, a new survival mode, ghost competition cars and 60 new building blocks such as tunnels, land transitions, signs and turbos. TrackMania has been coined as a highly addictive adventure with a fast-paced multiplayer Mecca, which allows for crazy tracks and a variety of fascinating competitive modes. Another key to TrackMania's appeal is that its network game is built to allow players of all skills to participate, from the casual gamer with a low-speed connection to the hard-core gamer with bandwidth galore!

"With a loyal following across Europe, we expect TrackMania to do very well in North America," said Paul Lombardi, chief executive officer of Enlight Interactive, the U.S. publishing operation of Enlight. "We are enormously pleased with TrackMania's success and believe gamers in the United States and Canada will thoroughly enjoy this fun and addictive racing game."

Developed by Nadeo and published in the United States and Canada by Enlight Interactive Inc., TrackMania will be available on Windows PC, priced at $29.99 (U.S.). For additional information please visit http://www.enlight.com/trackmania.

okay, so I saw this, and immediately went to EBgames to see if they would be one of the store chains carrying it. Yes, they will be....early next month.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but when a company announces that they're "shipping", that usually means it's been in production and they're sending out truckloads of the product, which can't possibly take more than a day or two to reach their destination.

It usually doesn't mean July 5th.


You know, I would have pointed you at ebworld.com, but I see they've now changed their ship date, also...something must have happened, as it was earlier.
