E3: Trials HD confirmed for XBLA

At last! /\/\0+0|2|31|<35!

Microsoft has outed an Xbox Live Arcade version of motorbike game RedLynx Trials. Yes! Goal!

Update: RedLynx has no date or price yet, but the game is included in the Summer of Arcade, so "soon".

Dubbed Trials HD, it packs over 50 high-definition courses sporting sparkly graphical effects like explosions. Look!

Furthermore, Trials HD allows rider-customisation, has bikes to unlock and includes the crucial global and friend leaderboards to compete on and climb.

Trials works around the simple premise of getting from the start to the end of a 2D course in the fastest time possible. But there are obstacles in the way, and the physics engine means plenty of stuntbike crashes and broken limbs, forcing players to restart from the nearest checkpoint. And restarts - faults - lower the overall score. Try again. And again. And so on.

RedLynx Trials 2: Second Edition had the Eurogamer office enraptured in frenzied competition. Tom even killed a man. Head over to our RedLynx Trials 2 review for a closer inspection.
