Electronic Arts and skating apparel provider (and capital letter rebel), etnies, have teamed up to bring the "Goofy vs. Regular" skating competition mode to the upcoming title, Skate 2. Here's the dig on the press release:
“The Skate franchise has always been committed to showcasing the spirit and soul of skateboard culture,” said Executive Producer, Scott Blackwood. “The etnies GvR competition celebrates the fun, creativity and talent in skateboarding today. Featuring the event as one of the main competitions in Skate 2 felt like a natural integration and a perfect fit.”
In addition to that, etnies will also manufacture an exclusive shoe, influenced by EA's skating title. Skate 2, developed by Black Box, is scheduled to be released sometime in 2009.
