It's a perfectly functional tribute, but nothing more.<br><br><strong>Gravity of the situation</strong><br><br><em>Urban Trial Freestyle 2</em> is all about guiding a motocross bike from left to right across a series of improbably stacked obstacle courses. You must wrestle with momentum, gravity, and balance in order to get to the finishing line as elegantly as possible.<br><br>It's possible to accelerate, brake, and even reverse your bike using the 3DS's fascia buttons, but the true key to the game's mastery lies with the analogue stick.

But, it looks like we'll be getting some tidbits later this week at Nintendo's next Direct presentation. <br><br>Nintendo's previous couple of presentations have definitely been informative, from their Fire Emblem Direct to their Nindie Direct (which has been my personal favourite so far), so we can only imagine what's coming. <br><br>Though the press release didn't state exactly what to expect, it did say that the Direct will focus mainly on ARMS and Splatoon 2, but other 3DS and Switch games will likely make an appearance. <br><br>I don't know about you, but I'm hoping for an <em>Overcooked</em> release date. <br><br>The upcoming Direct will be happening on April 12th at 11 PM (UK time), and I'll certainly keep you updated on it.  <br><br><strong><a href='http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Nintendo+news/news.asp?c=73607'>[read more]</a></strong> http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/3DS/Nintendo+news/news.asp?c=73607 Mon, 10 Apr 2017 15:24:55 GMT The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile - April 10 <img src="http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/artwork/thumbs/na-qumkk_kingdomtitle_png_100.jpg" width="200" alt="The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile - April 10" border="0" align="left" style="margin:5px 10px 10px 0px;"> The days are getting sunnier and greener here in the UK, but if you think that's going to stop us burying our heads in a good mobile game you're sorely mistaken.
