You can almost smell the burnt rubber already

The Wii U is currently in short supply of racing games but that's all set to change next month when TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition drifts into the eShop.

Essentially, it's a battle-racing game not too dissimilar to classic titles like Micro Machines and R.C. Pro-Am and looks like a perfect excuse for some high octane multiplayer action.

As you may have guessed, the camera follows the cars in an isometric view as they speed around the colourful race tracks and should a racer fall back far enough to go off-screen they are instantly eliminated. However, that doesn't mean they need to put down their controllers and wait for the next race, they can return as a shadow car to set up traps to harass the other players - this is certainly good for a bit of sneaky revenge.

The German developer keen games has crammed a lot into TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition and with 26 race tracks, 75 challenges, 16 cars types and seven game modes there should be enough gas in the tank to keep players coming back for quite some time.

Interestingly, there's a custom mode for players to tweak things such as AI strength and weather effects and there's also some online leaderboards for those looking to set some big numbers.

TNT Racers: Nitro Machines Edition is expected to take its starting position on 26th September and will be $7.99. We actually liked the WiiWare adaptation of this one - you can take a look at our TNT Racers review to get a feel for what to generally expect with the new iteration.
