Posted on April 19, 2017 by Jason Nason

The city is your playground! Tomorrow Teyon is releasing the sequel title Urban Trial Freestyle 2 on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

The game comes with numerous new levels in five locations. In the game you will be able to pull off insane stunts on top of skyscrapers, speed down busy highways and take an intense ride through the suburbs while competing with others to get to the top of the leaderboards! You can also raise the bar by making the highest jumps or the flips in Stunt Mode! Try Time Attack and beat the best time at breakneck speeds! The game will also come packed with Challenge levels to test your skills.

The game features worldwide leaderboards, a level editor, and bike and rider customization to fit your gameplay. It also has advanced physics including character rag-doll.

The game is set to retail for a wacky $9.29 CAD (gotta love that exchange rate) on Thursday. The action/sports title is rated E for Everyone.



Gear Customization And Ability Re-Roll Supported In Splatoon 2

Posted on April 19, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

The fine researchers over at the “squid research lab” have shared their latest findings about Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch. The game will allow players to unlock new abilities linked to their clothing and even have the ability to “re-roll” these abilities if they don’t suit their playstyle.

Gear is split up into three different categories just like in the first game – headgear, footwear and clothing. Each piece of gear can have a number of different abilities available and these abilities will become unlocked by simply playing with the clothing equipped. While unlocking abilities will be a matter of playing Splatoon 2 with your favorite freshest threads, the Squid Research Lab did mention that in addition to returning abilities, a whole suite of new abilities will be included in the sequel.

A new NPC by the name of Murch will help players with their customized gear – by paying a small fee players can have the attached abilities removed from a piece of gear. Gear abilities that “fall off” will be placed in the player’s possession and once they’ve collected enough of them an near infinite amount of new combinations become available!

Splatoon 2 will be released for the Nintendo Switch on July 21st in North America.

Veteran developers known for the “Tales of” franchise – Takumi Miyama (scenario writer) and Kosoke Fujishima (character designer) – bring JRPG fans a brand new title with the upcoming release of Dark Rose Valkyrie on PlayStation 4 this coming June.
