Skate City Is Coming To Console and PC “Very Soon”
Skate City, the mobile skateboarding game from developer Agens and publisher Snowman, is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC, Snowman announced to Game Informer. The port is being handled by Room 8, which has also developed ports for What Remains of Edith Finch, Abzu, and Telling Lies. While no specific release date was given, Snowman tells us the port will be released “very soon.”
Skate City was originally released exclusively for Apple Arcade in October 2019. Taking inspiration from games such as the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Skate series, it meets in the middle of arcade and simulation skate games, with an easy-to-use-tough-to-master control scheme on a mobile touch screen. Skate City is an endless runner (or in this case, skater) set in cities such as Oslo, Norway, Barcelona, Spain, and Los Angeles. Each level features homages to popular skate spots around the world, such as the Carlsbad Gap in California. Other features include the ability to customize the player skater and their board, more than 100 challenges to complete, and the ability to record and edit your own short skate videos. Check out the console reveal trailer below.
Skate City marks the third game Snowman is bringing over to other platforms after a period of mobile exclusivity, starting with porting Alto’s Odyssey and Alto’s Adventure onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in The Alto Collection. Where Cards Fall, the narrative game from Blaseball developer The Game Band, is expected to be released on Switch and PC sometime soon. You can read our previous interview with Snowman and The Game Band about the port right here. Up until recently, Snowman was a mobile-only publisher.
