127w ago - Playerthree Ltd Senior Producer Luigi Fumero has announced today alongside a video trailer that Rumble Trucks for PlayStation Minis is rolling onto PSN.

To quote: We are delighted to announce that our new minis title, Rumble Trucks, is released today.

Our previous minis title was the 2D sidescrolling shoot'em up - Apache Overkill, but with Rumble Trucks we decided to do something completely different, a 3D stunt racing game.

Rumble Trucks is not your classic racing game. Playing it feels like a rollercoaster ride: high speed, steep hills, huge jumps.

Big jumps allow for big tricks, perform them and you'll gain a speed boost, use it wisely and reach the end of level as fast as possible to win a medal. On the way to the finish line don't forget to collect the stars scattered around the levels as they give you a time bonus.

You'll be able to choose between nine vehicles with different stats and then race on one of the twenty four levels divided in three worlds. Obviously you will need to unlock the trucks and the levels before being able to play on them.





Reaching the final level in each world unlocks the next world, but those...

Greetings out there in PlayStation land! I'm Mark Tsai, president and co-founder at Magic Pixel Games in Los Angeles.

We've taken the physical accuracy of the PlayStation Move motion controller, Magic Pixel's expertise in motion-controlled gaming, and the fun of the carnival... and rolled them into a truly family-friendly, instantly-accessible experience.

It's all the fun of the fair without having to find parking! Check out our launch walkthrough video to learn why PS Move's technology enables a precise, seamless experience.





Carnival Island features more than 35 games and attractions, so there's surely something fun for gamers...
