AUSTIN, TX – December 3, 2008 – Aspiring grease monkeys, put down the wrench and pick up a stylus. Aspyr Media has partnered with KANDO to publish Touch Mechanic™ for Nintendo DS™ in North America. Due in stores Q1 2009, Touch Mechanic™ tasks players with learning what it takes to be a surgeon of the automobile. Gamers learn to change rims, repair damaged bumpers, replace mufflers and brakes, add aftermarket enhancements and perform paint and decal work on vehicles of all shapes and sizes while working their way to the top of the profession.

Touch Mechanic™ features an intuitive interface for performing repairs and upgrades such as installing screws, changing wheels, welding, sawing and painting. Through manipulating the stylus, players will become a master of all the tools and tricks of the trade.
