Skater XL Switch

The Switch version of Skater XL has finally received a release date. Today, Easy Day Studios announced that the port is slated for December 5, 2023.

It’s been a wild ride for Skater XL, as the game was first announced in 2019. It was delayed in 2020, and while it was only pushed back a few weeks on other platforms, we’re just now getting the Switch version.

Although it’s been a long wait, it sounds like Easy Day Studios has been putting in quite a bit of works for the Switch version. Described as a “faithfull and full-featured release”, it will run at “a solid 60 FPS in both handheld and docked mode” while “maintaining the fluid physics-based gameplay that more than 1 million gamers have enjoyed to date.” It’ll also come with online multiplayer freeskate sessions, a built-in replay editor, and mods.

Here’s some additional information:

Powered by Mod.io, Skater XL Switch players will have instant access to a large curated offering of mods from passionate creators and fakeskate brands. In addition to all official content, players can find the perfect look or download the latest gear in the most extensive skating content library ever. The title’s dedicated modding community boasts more than 100,000 Discord members who continue to deliver a growing library of new user generated content including maps, skate gear, skins and more.
