"Skate It" is an upcoming skateboarding video game developed by EA Montreal, Exient Entertainment and EA Black Box for the Nintendo DS and Wii. The game is a spin-off of 2007's "Skate", and the developers have stated that it is not a port or sequel but rather an original game.cite web | url = | title = Skate It Wii Hands-On Impressions | work = Kotaku] "Skate It" is expected to be released November 17, 2008.cite web | url = | title = IGN Wii: Skate It | work = IGN]


"Skate It" will be set in San Vanelona, the same fictional city as the original game. However several mysterious disasters (identified as earthquakes in "Skate 2") have caused widespread damage and a mass evacuation of the city, leaving the player free to skate alone and undisturbed. However, they will be able to travel to other cities in the world later in the game.

Because the Nintendo DS and Wii lack the dual analog joysticks that were used for control in the original game, the controls for "Skate It" will be redesigned to take advantage of the platform's respective control methods. For example, the Wii version will utilize the motion sensing of the Wii Remote to control the player's skateboard, with gestures used to perform tricks, while the Nintendo DS version will feature stylus and touchscreen control. The Wii version will also feature support for the Wii Balance Board. [cite web | url = | title = Skate It Hands-on | work = IGN] [cite web | url = | title = Previews: Skate It | work =]

The Wii version will feature a modified version of the original's game engine, and will support 480p and widescreen display options. The Instant Replay feature from the original game will also return. The Wii version will also offer a deep and unique career mode that allows the player to earn sponsors, unlock gear, and travel to places such as London, Barcelona, Paris, Shanghai & Rio de Janeiro, a first for the series. In addition, a number of offline and online multiplayer modes will be available. [cite web | url = | title = Skate It on Wii and Nintendo DS | work = IGN]
