EA have today announced Wii and DS iterations of their new skate
franchise. Skate It
will be among the first titles to use the Wii's new Balance Board (designed for Wii Fit), which might sound odd, but believe me when I say this thing actually works. In conjunction with the Blanace Board, you'll also utilise skate's revolutionary Flickit
controls via the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, while on DS, you'll be drawing
your way around skate's game-world of San Vanelona using the stylus for the Flickit
Skate It unleashes the FlickIt revolution on to the Nintendo platforms, letting gamers use the Wii remote or the Nintendo DS stylus to string together their best tricks for the ultimate skate line.
The Wii remote becomes a skateboard and reacts to gestures that mirror actual skate flips and moves. Players can also deepen this experience by planting their feet on the Wii Balance board. Skate It brings the hit Skate franchise to a new level of creative ingenuity and gameplay excellence.
According to the press release, both titles will release this year, while the much anticipated skate 2
for Xbox 360 and PS3 is mentioned to still be deep in development. You can find out more about Skate It
