Remember Project Haste, the Ubisoft ATV racer from Nail'd developer Techland? It has now been revealed to be Mad Riders, evidently the same one recently rated in Australia, and, surprise, it looks an awful lot like Nail'd. In fact, Mad Riders looks almost exactly like Nail'd, right down to stunts, boost, floating rings and even the hot air balloons. The game will feature 45 different tracks and multiplayer for up to 12 players (the same number of players as Nail'd, incidentally).

Mad Riders will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC this spring. Assuming it's as entertaining as Nail'd, Mad Riders should be a perfect fit for the downloadable market.
