MotoHeroz Trailer Unleashed

First footage of WiiWare racer
RedLynx already announced their upcoming game MotoHeroz a few months ago, but only gave us two screenshots to look at. Now, they've released a trailer.
The developer might not mean much to Nintendo-only gamers, but people with multiple systems might recognize them as the creators of the Trials games on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam, which are decently popular stunting games where you ride a motorcycle. This looks to be somewhat similar in terms of physics and the stunting aspect, but as it's a racer, of course, this time there are also 3 opponents you'll have to look out for and try to beat.
The game should be released early this year, but until then, here's the trailer:

January 18, 2011 (Helsinki, Finland) — RedLynx (redlynx.com) today released the first gameplay footage of MotoHeroz, its original game for Nintendo's WiiWare™ service.
This debut trailer features in-game footage, including extended peeks at the single player Story Mode and the four player Party Rally gameplay, as well as some of the game's many rich, visual environments. Other highlights include select vehicle models and some of the game's unique power-ups.
"You've seen the screen shots, but the video give a better feel of the speed, flow, big jumps and crazy things that happen in MotoHeroz," said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx and lead designer on the game. "We can't wait until you actually get to play it."
The trailer also features the music of Petri Alanko, composer of the critically acclaimed soundtrack for Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake. Petri Alanko's work for that game has been nominated for "Best Videogame Music" in the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
Beyond what is heard in the trailer, Alanko will be creating a full musical score for MotoHeroz, inspired by the game's platformer origins and colorful world.
"It's a joy to create music for a game like MotoHeroz," Alanko said. "It has all the retro charm of the classic videogames I loved as a child, but looks forward to a bright, fun world full of adventure."
RedLynx has made that first MotoHeroz tune, heard in the trailer, available as both a free, high-quality MP3 and a ringtone for all to download and share.
