Microsoft's Twisted Pixel studio (The Maw, 'Splosion Man) announced today that its upcoming LocoCycle will be an Xbox One launch title. An Xbox 360 version of the game is also under development, with a "not yet determined" release window.
The game will be playable at E3, but here's a preview of the game from late last year.
Twisted Pixel's Latest Creation to be Playable at E3
June 6th, 2013 - Austin, TX - The story of a martial arts wielding assassin motorcycle who becomes self-aware and accidentally drags her South American engineer on a cross-country search for freedom is not one that is easily told. Luckily for us, the most advanced combat motorcycle ever made is coming to the most advanced gaming system ever conceived.
Shrouded in mystery for most of its development, Lococycle's release date and platform has finally been announced. While I.R.I.S.'s ride for freedom will coincide with the launch of Xbox One, those wishing for a sneak peek can play the game at this year's E3 conference, front and center at the Microsoft booth. This is great news for everyone but Pablo, the South American engineer who doesn't seem to speak proper American. But even he must admit that the smooth 60fps and 1080p graphics capture his plight in stunning high definition.
For those desperate souls who want to play LocoCycle but won't immediately have an Xbox One, fear not! An Xbox 360 version of the game is also under development, to be released on a future date not yet determined.
LocoCycle will be available as a "digital exclusive" via the new Xbox Live marketplace on Xbox One. For further information and to download the all-new Xbox One reveal trailer and screenshots please visit www.twistedpixelgames.com and our press kit here.
