Trials Rising "Microtracks Classic Track Pack" detailed

Take a trip down memory lane

Things are starting to heat up in the Arena of Menace! Prepare your fingers and thumbs for a new unique challenge coming to the world of Trials Rising. On Thursday, March 26, take a trip down memory lane with the Microtracks Classic Track Pack and revisit a time when Trials tracks were very short and very hard.

This track pack is all about straightforward speedrunning and trying again and again. A throwback to the original Trials browser games from 20 years past, this track pack includes 12 arena-based microtracks including 4 Medium, 4 Hard & 4 Extreme tracks. Located on the World Map in North Africa, each track will take around 10-15 seconds for the seasoned player. Checkpoints? The Arena of Menace don’t need no checkpoints! These short tests of Trials skill must be passed without faults, start to finish. If you strive for perfection you’ll have to put in the practice on these delightfully technical tracks.

Get ready to jump on your bike and get to grinding, Rider! Starting March 26th, we’ll see you on the Microtrack leaderboards.

Ubisoft releases Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune as standalone titles in Europe

Two of the greatest game shows ever!

Over in Europe, the only way to get Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! on the Switch was to buy the two-pack. While both are great game shows, I'm sure some people out there only want one and not the other. Thankfully Ubisoft has finally made that option available, and they're celebrating the launch with two new trailers. Check them out in this post.

Ubisoft Spring Sale now live on the Switch eShop

Major savings on major games

Ubisoft is currently running a Switch eShop sale, and it's sticking around until March 23rd, 2020. Check out the games included and their special prices below.

PEGI listings for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! on Switch pop up

I'd like to solve the puzzle

Here in the states, we've been able to grab both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! for the Switch for quite some time now. As a matter of fact, there was a double pack you could scoop up if you were so inclined. Unfortunately, our friends over in Europe never had the chance to grab either game, but it seems that's going to change.

The PEGI ratings board has just added in listings for both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, both of which include Switch in their listings. I'd imagine these are the same two games that came out here years ago, but you never know. They could be the latest revamps for each title. We'll try to get more details and make sure to keep you updated.

Thanks to Sephiroth_FF for the heads up!

UNO FLIP! DLC and UNO Ultimate Edition available on Switch in Japan

You'll flip over this

A double-dose of UNO fun has just hit the Switch eShop in Japan. Ubisoft has added in UNO FLIP! DLC (660 yen) for the original UNO Switch release, alongside UNO Ultimate Edition, which includes the base UNO game and FLIP! DLC for 1,980 yen. You can read full details on what UNO FLIP! is all about below.

Brace yourself for the next iteration of classic UNO™: UNO FLIP!™ It's the matching game you know, plus exciting new twists -- like a double sided deck and special FLIP card -- that give classic gameplay a competitive edge. Players take turns matching a card in their hand with the current card shown on top of the deck either by color or number. In a race to deplete their hands, players can play special cards to slow their opponents down, like Skips, Reverses and color-changing Wild cards. UNO FLIP!™ also includes new Action cards that really shake things up, like Draw Five and Skip Everyone cards. Play the special FLIP card and all cards in your hand, the draw pile and draw deck are flipped over to reveal an entirely new set of numbers and colors on the opposite side! The holder of the FLIP card determines whether or not you play on the "light" side or "dark" side of the deck -- and when you switch it back around. Strategize to rattle your competition and be the first to get rid of your cards to win. When you're down to one card, don't forget to shout "UNO!" Colors and decorations may vary.
