Shaun White Skateboarding detailed

Game's hook is transformable cities.

Ubisoft has reconfirmed Shaun White Skateboarding for release on PC, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 this autumn.

The game's hook is transformable cities. According to the first video, you'll be able to turn urban streets from glum to grand simply by skating on them.

Exactly how you "stretch and twist handrails to dizzying heights, empty fountains to create bowls" and to "make alleys into epic quarter pipes" the press release doesn't state. But there's no mention of a toolset.

These transformed cities can be shared with friends online. You'll also have the option of co-op and competitive modes and local split-screen.

In single-player there will be race, collect and narrative challenges. Ubisoft's packing in 80-plus tricks for you to master, plus a whole city to set about turning into a playground.

The video below has no gameplay footage but is worth a watch. The first Shaun White Skateboarding offers a better glimpse of the final product.

I wonder if his hair ever gets caught in the wheels.
