Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure - XB - Preview
E3 2003 - First Look
When we think of skateboarding, the first names that come to mind usually are not Tarzan, Woody, or Buzz from Disney's more recent movie lineup. Usually, we think of ... who else ... Tony Hawk. He's had a great series of fun and addictive skating titles out, and who better than to take on a Disney skateboarding project than the original developers of the series? Activision is looking to change our thinking on "who's the best skater around" with Disney's Extreme Skate.
This game will actually use the Tony Hawk engine that we all know and love, but add in characters from Disney movies that both grown ups and kids will recognize. For example, the elephant from Tarzan was riding his own little bamboo board and grinding it up while Woody was ripping it up on Hot Wheels tracks scattered around Andy's room. The graphics were already looking good, with toys, environments, and objects being brightly colored and placed just enough for you to pull off lots of cool tricks and combos. There's also a create a player mode that's added in for additional fun for all.
Keep an eye out for Disney Extreme Skate around August 2003.
