Urban Trial Freestyle 2 releases on 3DS today (Video)

Tate Multimedia are proud to announce that Urban Trial Freestyle 2, the sequel to the best-selling urban themed, stunt bike racer, has launched exclusively on 3DS in Europe with a release in North America coming later in April. Revving the action up another gear, this jam-packed sequel brings a fully functioning, tricked out level creator with online sharing functionality as well as twice as many levels to rampage through and a myriad of new bikes and customisation options available to unlock.

Urban Trial Freestyle 2 brings back all the mad, stunt bike action seen in the original, this time exclusively to Nintendo 3DS, taking full advantage of touch screen technology to create the ultimate track editor that also allow players to share their creations online with friends. Create a race track that, let’s say, is completely made of hot dogs, send it to your friend to see if they can beat your times and wait eagerly for their mind to be blown.

This full to bursting sequel follows on from the release of the original Urban Trial Freestyle which launched back in 2013 on Playstation Vita (as the #1 title in US and Europe), Playstation 3 and 3DS in Japan (#3 downloaded title on the eShop). Cumulatively this saw over 1 million sales worldwide cementing its place as a smash hit success. Both games have been made by Tate Multimedia one of the leading independent developers and publishers in Poland. Their work to date, including the huge sales success of the original Urban Trial Freestyle, has earned them the “Forbes Diamond” award, a prize granted to the fastest developing Polish companies. They have also received a subsidy of almost half a million euros by the GameINN programme which aims to increase the competitiveness of the videogame producer sector in Poland. Of the 38 companies who benefited from this grant Tate came 11th alongside CD Projekt and CI Games.

Launching on March 30th Urban Trial Freestyle 2 signals a resurgence for the company as they enter their biggest year yet with new titles still to be announced in 2017. “We’re incredibly excited to bring back Urban Trial Freestyle. We would like to thank the community, whose support has simply been phenomenal. It’s because of them we know we’re on the right track with Urban Trial Freestyle 2,” said Paul Leskowicz VP at Tate Multimedia. “Tate Multimedia has grown rapidly to accommodate our unannounced titles that will start to be revealed later this year but also so we can get started immediately on expanding the Urban Trial Freestyle franchise to the latest and most exciting pieces of gaming hardware available.”

Urban Trial Freestyle 2 is available to purchase today from the EU 3DS eShop for £6.29/€6.99. To celebrate the launch My Nintendo is offering a 20% discount on the game for 20 Gold Points. The offer is only available until April 14th and coupons will need to be used by April 30th.
