Urban Trials Wheels onto PlayStation Vita

Even if you’re the most devout PlayStation follower, you’ll probably have heard of the Xbox 360’s Trials series at some point. The brilliantly addictive arcade affair sees you attempting to control a trials motorbike across increasingly difficulty stages. Its emphasis on physics and weight distribution makes it one of the most addictive and frustrating experiences on the platform.

Clearly realising that there is a market for a similar type of title on other systems, Tate Interactive has lifted the lid on its upcoming Urban Trials for PlayStation Vita. The game – which is currently scheduled for an early 2012 release – aims to put you in control of a “trials motorbike with advanced physics modelling”. Sounds familiar, huh?

You’ll be able to race against the ghosts of your friends, upgrade your bike and enjoy crashes which show off the game’s human body physics. Bit weird that last one.

The game will feature 20 levels, in addition to various challenges and time trials.

It’s a copy cat, no doubt about that, but Urban Trials looks perfectly tuned to the Vita. Hopefully it gets a firm release date soon.

I will not buy this game at all if there is no level editor. The game looks good and all, but I enjoy making custom courses and thats all the real entertainment I get from these times of games.

Is red lynx involved at all with this game?...If so I cant wait...If not then I am not so sure what I think of this.

@Play_It_Loud No, Red Lynx own the Trials series, which is currently only on the Xbox 360 and PC. This is from Tate Interactive, and they're bringing a similar title to fill the void. Let's hope they nail the physics!
