Stunt bike racing action on the go!
Tate Multimedia, developers behind the Urban Trial franchise, have today released the newest game in the series, Urban Trial Playground exclusively on the Nintendo Switch! This new installment of the stunt bike racing series is moving the action from city streets, straight to the sunny and colourful beaches of California, mixing tricks, flips and combos unlike ever before. With this new setting also comes a change in gameplay, with the franchise first feature of independent front and rear brake controls. Players will be able to pull off stoppies and front flips as well as sliding into huge skid burns on the track and racking up longer combos.
A couple of modes and features were also added into this entry, some of which include the Freestyle and Time Trial modes which will include online leaderboards across the 50+ game levels in order to challenge those players who grind their scores and rise to the top of the ranks online. In addition, the game also features five customisation bikes that players can not only upgrade the look of, but also the engine, breaks and vital parts, which impact how the bike controls. Vast options of customisation for your bike and ride will allow each player to personalise their game and score new records in true California style!
Urban Trials Playground will also be getting a physical release in Japan, Europe and Australia later this month due out on April 30th. However if you are interested in picking up the game today on the Nintendo eShop you can do so for $19.99 / £17.99.
