Big news broke this morning: Illusion Labs, the creators of Sway [$4.99] and Labyrinth 2 [$4.99], have announced that it’s working on a follow-up of sorts to Touchgrind [$4.99], a fascinating touch-based skate boarding title that made waves with the touch crowd. This follow-up is Touchgrind BMX, a multi-touch BMX-oriented trick game slated to hit later this spring.

Details are light at the moment, but Illusion Labs did send us over the following trailer and this little nugget: “Your skill and imagination,” Illusion Labs says, “are the only limits to unlocking bikes and locations all over the world.” Dudes are teases, right?

Judging from the trailer, it appears as though this BMX iteration of the series will feature a similar true-to-life physics engine, as well as realistic visuals. The physics are the part we’re super pumped about: Touchgrind tricks were a blast to pull off because of them. We’ll obviously keep our eyes out for this one and we recommend that you do the same, too. Come on Spring!

    This game is beautiful, is it using the Unreal Engine?

      Doesn't look like it to me... if it is then it's well disguised.

    Absolutely cannot wait. Illusion Labs deliver some of the most consistent quality of any App Store developer, everything they do screams quality and (this word is fast becoming too cliche for my liking...) polish. I have no doubt this will be another big seller for them.

    Looks good. I guess I'll pass on the original and buy this BMX version.

    Hell yeah! This looks fantastic. The forward-looking viewpoint will make this infinitely more playable than Touchgrind. I loved Touchgrind but, like most people I know who have it, I ended up staying close by a big rail the whole time to rack up the best scores.

    They should update Touchgrind to have a viewpoint like this.

    What I love the most is how well this touch-screen input mechanic works. I'd love to play a console skating game on TV using the iPhone to control in this manner.

    This looks fantastic, if unbelievably confusing. I couldn't ever get into TouchGrind because of the top-down viewpoint, but this looks to rectify that, hopefully. Day One purchase.

    the animations look kinda stiff

    I'm not really into this type of stuff, but that looks really fun.

    meh

    from a bmx enthusiast pov, the dirt jump/ramp aerial movement looks fun and fluid. it seems being able to control both ends of the bike independently in the air is key. just wondering if there will be grinding/manuals integrated into gameplay?
