Urban Trial is a series that’s been running on Nintendo platforms since the days of the 3DS. Its focus is simple: guide your rider through a series of physics-based courses that will have you making massive leaps, and hopping and ducking your way through various obstacles. It’s a formula meant to challenge your reflexes and precision. But, now, the next entry spices things up with a funky new trick system. This is the upcoming Urban Trial Tricky.
Urban Trial Tricky really leans in on the zaniness with your character now being able to pull off impossible stunts like dancing on your bike as it rides, and defying gravity as you spin multiple times hovering over your seat before the bike lands after a crazy jump (what sentence did I even just type?).
Urban Trial Tricky still keeps much of the same DNA as its predecessors, including Urban Trial Playground which launched on Switch back in 2018. But, this new trick system is sure to add some real pizazz to the overall flow of the experience, as Urban Trial Tricky promises “a crazy mix of tricks, platforming and racing.” Urban Trial Tricky will also run at 60 FPS, and is a Switch exclusive. Here’s a rundown of the features:
1. Exciting light-hearted casual gameplay
2. Crazy mix of tricks, platforming, and racing
3. Killer tricks to combine in countless combos
4. Super-smooth experience in 60 FPS
5. 3 single-player modes
6. Over 30 levels + side challenges
7. Savage customization options
8. Leaderboards to rule
9. Infinite gameplay
10. More freedom, more fun. Riding in both directions.
Urban Trial Tricky does not yet have a release date, but its publisher, Tate Multimedia, does say it will be launching on Switch “soon”. It would make a sweet title to drop during the summertime, as the theme fits rather well. We’ll just have to wait and see what Tate ultimately decides to do.
