Though customizable racetrack enthusiasts living in Europe and Australia have had their lucky, lucky hands on Firebrand Games' TrackMania Wii and its DS counterpart, TrackMania Turbo, for months now, North Americans have had to go without. Don't they know that we love ridiculous, physics-defying vehicular labrynths as much as (if not more than) our overseas cohorts? Fortunately, publisher City Interactive feels our pain: According to the company's latest financial statements, the two titles are coming stateside this spring.

The new publisher also comes with a new name: Both versions of the game are now titled TrackMania: Build to Race, and will retail for $29.99. Keep an eye out for the Wii version March 22 and the DS version April 12. Unless, of course, you don't like possessing the godlike ability to craft racetracks from the luminiferous aether.
