To update [Sun 22nd Jan, 2023 02:25 GMT]: A listing for Sessions: Skate Sim has now appeared on the Switch eShop and on the official Nintendo website. Apparently the March 16, 2023.
There will be two versions: the standard for $49.99 USD (or your regional equivalent) and the Deluxe Edition for $59.99, and both can be pre-ordered now. The deluxe version will include additional levels and some other exclusive items. Here is the official description:
AUTHENTIC PLAY: With dual stick controls, each stick represents one of your feet. You will need to learn to control them and transfer weight, just like on a real skateboard. The physics have been developed with a focus on realism, smoothness, and immersion. Just like in real life for a new skateboarder, the first few hours can seem challenging, but once you’ve mastered the technique, you’ll feel the unmatched thrill of pulling off your first kickflip! Session: Skate Sim also includes full customization options, so you can have the perfect experience to suit you. A comprehensive tutorial provides all the help you need to get started, and you can choose from four difficulty levels!
THE 1990S AND SKATE CULTURE – Inspired by the golden age of street skating, the 1990s, Session: Skate Sim lets you experience real skateboarding and culture: no scoring system; just you, your place and your imagination! No need for the judges to tell you that your noseslide or variable heelflip are perfect for this spot. And because certain places are iconic, the developers added several to the game for you to skate and express your creativity, including Black Hubbas (New York), Brooklyn Banks (New York), FDR Park (Philadelphia) and many other places.
“IF IT WASN’T Caught ON VIDEO, IT DIDN’T HAPPEN” – Skating and doing the best lines in the best places is one thing, but if there’s no one around to film it, it didn’t actually happen… In Session: Skate Sim, you can film with a 1990s filter or fisheye lens, and you can use the video editor to create your clips and share them. You can play around with multiple options, including changing the field of view, time of day, filters, and different camera views (tripod, orbit, etc.). Session: Skate Sim also offers the opportunity to go from skater to filmmaker: perform your moves and then go into movie mode to experience the action from the point of view of your camera operator and create the best clip.
CUSTOMIZATION – Show your style with an extensive customization system for your skateboarder and skateboard. By completing challenges, you earn money to spend in skate shops. You can find nearly 200 items (hoodies, shoes, hats, t-shirts, pants, etc.) from the best brands, such as Fallen, Zero, GrindKing, Thankyou, HIJINX Net, Antilanta, Roger Skate CO, No-Comply, iDabble and others. You can also customize your skateboard with more than 250 parts such as wheels, trucks and many other components from famous brands like No-Comply, Grind King, Thankyou and many others. In addition to the design aspect, the components (trucks, risers, wheels…) impact the way you skate. Find the right ones for your style and smash the most iconic places!
original story [Fri 2nd Sep, 2022 05:15 BST]: Skateboarding games have had a resurgence in recent years, and it looks like the Nintendo Switch could be getting one more in the near future.
Another rating has appeared, this time in Taiwan. As Universo Nintendo points out (via GoNintendo), it’s Session: Skate Sim. This title is due out later this month on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC (currently Early Access), but there has been no official mention of a Switch release so far.
According to the Taiwan rating board, the rating has been submitted by the game’s publisher, Nacon. This follows a number of other listings this week. If we hear any updates, we’ll let you know.
