Easy Day Studios proudly announces the long-awaited arrival of Skater XL on Nintendo Switch, bringing an authentic street skating experience to the palm of your hand. With 100% physics-based controls and a super-smooth 60 FPS, Skater XL grants you the creative freedom you’ve longed for.
Dain Hedgpeth, Co-Founder, and Director of Easy Day Studios, expresses pride in the optimization of the Switch version, ensuring it matches the fluidity and fun of other platforms. The three-year journey culminates in the launch of Skater XL on Switch at 60FPS, making it the most fun and authentic skateboarding game ever on a handheld device.
Initially slated for 2020, the Skater XL team dedicated an additional 3 years to the task of deconstructing, reconstructing, and optimizing the game to ensure it not only looks fantastic but also feels incredible on the Nintendo Switch’s hardware allowing silky-smooth 60 FPS whether you’re playing in handheld mode or docked, while maintaining that cherished fluidity and physics-based gameplay that Skater XL fans have come to adore on other platforms.
Remaining true to Skater XL’s core concept, the Nintendo Switch edition transports the familiar open, creative sandbox to your fingertips, allowing you to skate, film, chill, and create at your own pace. Boasting features like freeskate multiplayer, the replay editor, character customization, and access to user-generated content via our Mod Browser, Skater XL is ushering in the smoothest, most responsive, and most realistic skateboarding game ever to grace the Switch.
