EA to Release Skate It in May

By , on March 19, 2010

With Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 on its way, it seems only natural for a line up of Skate Apps to be waiting in the wings. E.A. are one of the first to step up to the bar with the announcement of the upcoming release of Skate It, which should be hitting the AppStore in May.

The controls will consist of a combination of accelerometers and screen gestures. Movements and tricks will be controlled by your fingers on the touch screen. There will be a number of modes including professional, tournaments, mini-assignments and create your own course. With extras you'd expect from a great skate game like replays and custom courses, Skate It is sure to satisfy any skate enthusiast.

From EA:

Key Features:

FEEL IT & PICK UP AND PLAY LIKE IT'S FOR REAL: We've maxed out the potential of your accelerometer and gesture controls. Get a real feel of a true skate experience as you conquer the skater nirvana that is "San Vanelona" or roll through real-world locations.  

FLICK- IT & LAND YOUR TRICKS: Use the revolutionary touchscreen Flick-it controls to pull off ollies, kickflips, heelflips, Pop Shuvits, and more.  

BE IT & LIVE THE LIFE OF THE PROS: Freeskate as a selected pro skater, or as your own customized guy or girl. Score Personal Bests in Career mode, and get sponsorships and perks galore.  

KILL IT & UNLOCK STUFF: Own challenges and KILL them to get the really good stuff - from new boards to outfits. Unlock fresh skate spots, too. Gain enough gear and create your own killer skate park.  

FILM IT & SEE YOUR SKILLS IN ACTION: Capture every sick line or epic bail on camera. Replay footage to view your mastery or just for your own amusement.
