SK8 announced for PS2
Based on the world’s best competition and street skaters, Rage has announced their newest title, SK8, for the PS2. The skaters included in the game range from Cesar Mora to Fabiola Da Silva to Jon Julio. Along with these extreme skaters, Rage is also featuring a skater creator mode that will allow you to customize your blader.
Expected in the Q4 of 2002, SK8 will also include an assortment of environments such as shopping malls, skate parks, and street venues. Also, a park editor will be added, as it is the ongoing trend now for extreme titles. Take a look at the sweet screenshots we have for you.
SolidSnake: I just wanted to toss my two cents in regards to the announcement. As an avid in-line skater myself, I was extremely excited to see the first glimpse of an extreme sports title that I can actually relate to. I look forward, in eager anticipation, to get my hands on SK8 next year. For those of you wondering, my wheels are K2 Camanos.
