Big announcements aren't just for Asia. At Paris Games Festival today, Nadeo's Trackmania 2 was announced. I'm bad on my French, but if this Tweet is to be believed "tm2 sortira en 2010" means it's coming next year.
While you're taking in that shakycam above, this Twitter feed says Trackmania 2 will be a PC release at launch ("No XBLA, PSN or Mac ports. Nadeo only want to focus on PC.") and will feature four splitscreen modes: Cup, regular championship, team, and cooperative. Nadeo is said to have spent three years working on it.
