The studio confirmed they spent several years developing their skateboarding title for the Nintendo Switch to reach 60fps on the console. To this date, over 1 million players enjoyed the indie skateboarding title and now with the game coming to the Switch, the number will grow. 

Key Features:

60 FPS on Switch – Featuring a rare, ultra smooth 60 FPS in handheld mode, Nintendo Switch players can take skateboarding on the go and fully experience Skater XL’s acclaimed physics-based gameplay. Skateboarding with the Joy-Cons has never felt so fluid or responsive!
