Looking for a little handheld skating action this Holiday Season? If so you’re in luck, as Skater XL hits the Switch next week.
Time to grind
One really nice thing about Nintendo’s Switch, is that while you can of course use it as a main console, you can also double-dip on titles you love, and turn it into a portable solution. Take Skater XL for example, a well-received skateboarding title that launched on PC and other platforms a while back.
Developer Easy Day Studios has just revealed that the game will be making its way to Nintendo’s current console, arriving on December 5th. So with that, those who’ve played the heck out of another version will be able to load it up again, and this time take the action to go.
And if you’ve yet to get into Skater XL, then you’ll be happy to know that the Switch version doesn’t sound like it cuts too many corners. According to Easy Day, fans can expect 60fps play, online multiplayer, and some “lean-back vibes”.
Easy Day Studios wants to remind Nintendo fans that with the hectic holiday season of intense games to grind, there’s also time to chill with the upcoming release of Skater XL on Switch. Both physical and digital editions will be available for purchase at retail or to download on December 5 in North America and December 12 in EU and AU regions. This new trailer demonstrates the buttery-smooth 60 FPS visual quality of the Switch version as well as the lean-back vibes Nintendo gamers will experience this holiday season.Easy Day Studios press release
Also definitely worth mentioning, is that this isn’t a purely digital release. While you can get a copy of Skater XL via the eShop for sure, you can also pick up a boxed copy at your local gaming store. Both editions will be out day-and-date, on December 5th, and both will be priced in at $39.99 USD.
