Nintendo Download: Born To Skate

No, it’s not time for Tony Hawk just yet, but Skate City does arrive this week on Nintendo’s Switch. What’s that? A surprisingly slick looking skater actually.

Skate or die

Oh my is skating back on the video game grid. There’ve been a few titles to feature the sport in the last couple of years, headlined of course by the rebirth of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

That’s a game that’s coming to the Switch in June, but if you just can’t wait, then you might want to check out Skate City. A very different looking title thank THPS, SC nonetheless is looking kinda neat, sporting an animated look.

If though, you’re not into skating, you won’t find much this week in the Download. The Switch’s weekly online shop update is only featuring this title, with no other headliners. And while there are a bunch of smaller releases, as usual, none of them are all that iterating IMO.
