For the better part of this year, I've sit by and waited for this game to get released. Everytime the release date got close...the date changed. Now when I go to look at the latest date, I can't find the game listed anywhere anymore. What happened?

After some google searching...I came across a site that was saying the release date was now 2Q of 2011....what the hell...

Is TM for the wii ever coming to the usa?

I'm searching from the UK but current dates on Amazon.com and Wikipedia show a North America release date of December 21. Although I can only imagine how frustrating it is that the game is not released at the same time as the rest of the world, I am sure it will be released eventually!

I've been waiting for this game for a long time. I was already pissed when it was moved to Dec. 21st, now this? Just when the game is practically in our hands it's pushed back on the last second. Just give us the damn game! It's not like it's going to fail miserably, it's Trackmania for God's sake! Call me biased, but I'm sure there are enough fans, people who will write good reviews, and racing fans to get this game to be profitable. I'm almost 80% sure that's the only reason it's not being released right now, because it's third party.

Well, Amazon now has a release date of Feb 1, 2011 from developer City Interactive, so who knows what is going on w/this game. City Interactive has a release date of tba on their website. I'm guessing that maybe they have now taken over development of the US release. Either that, or their version is some sort of 2nd installment (they do show a DS version as well). Sent 'em an email to see if they would divulge any info. Doubt they will, but I'll post any add'l info I receive. I had hoped to have it for Christmas as well...tired of playing Mario Kart! :x

Wait, it isn't in the US yet? I have it, and I'm an Australia, so that's pretty weird. Usually the US get games before we do.

The Official Nintendo Magazine gave it a 9 out of 10, so I don't see why the US wouldn't be getting it...

Yeah, it is very annoying we don't have it yet. However, this article may mean it is about to drop, since I think Navarre is the distrbutor and/or a developer (not exactly sure which)... https://www.navarre.com/nds/catalog/ite ... 76265.aspx

I'm not holding my breath though, especially since it was orignally supposed to come out last spring! Also, City Interactive still has a "tbd" for its release date on their website. While Amazon is sometimes wrong, at least their date matches the 2/22 of Navarre for the moment.

Navarre has a Release Date of: 3/15/2011

We can't win. Everytime we get to the release date, it gets bumped. I give up. Time to find something else to play.

EDIT: Gamestop has a release date of 2/22....maybe we will get lucky. I recant my statement and will wait two more days. After that, then I give up.

EDIT 2: Bumped again to 2/23...lol. This is starting to get ridiculous.

Yeah, this is pissing me off. Distributor Navarre now has a date of 3/22, along w/Amazon. City Interactive still shows 2/22...wow, if the developer can't even post a date that makes sense, what chance to we have of knowing when it will actually be realeased?! Gamestop appears to be completely clueless and even IGN as well who shows the release was yesterday...how pathetic!! If I had to guess, I would say it's looking more like a March release, unless it gets pushed back further, which is likely. I will be ecstatic if it comes out in the next couple days, but I highly doubt it.

Shame, it really is a good game. I feel like owning the game is rubbing it in America's face...

It seems that way, yes. Sadly I don't believe the game will be released for a while, if at all. The multiplayer in Trackmania Wii seems dead without pre-arranging something with friend codes, and I had hoped the US release would help boost that. Bad play by the US publisher for not making it clear; I can't find a firm release date on Google :(

Multiplayer and downloading extra content are a massive part of the game's appeal, and they're both almost absent
You know what would boost the multiplayer? If another Wii game was released later on, was much more publicised, and it was possible for TM2 players to play online with TMWii2 players. Just a thought.
