Nobilis and Ascaron Entertainment have unveiled Moto Racer DS, the latest instalment in the successful racing series, and its first entry onto Nintendo's handheld.

Due for release in April this year, racing fans will find themselves taking part in four different disciplines across a wide range of environments.

Having been developed specifically for the DS, Moto Racer DS also introduces an optional new stylus control system called Stylus Precision Handling (SPH).

What this means is that gamers will be able to accelerate, break and pull out freestyle moves by moving the stylus across the screen.

For example, if you point the stylus left and right, the bike will move in the chosen direction. However, other stylus moves will also help you perform back flips, flying jumps and crazy spins as well.

Gamers will be able to compete in single races, missions or against up to eight friends in multiplayer mode.

The four different disciplines you can choose to play in are Grand Prix for high speed racing, Traffic for skilled manoeuvring, Super Cross for indoor circuits and Freestyle for pulling out your best tricks.
