Electronic Arts has leaked the first information for skateboarding sequel Skate 2.

According to two teaser-style trailers - What happened to that Dude? and What happened to San Vanelona? - the action will take place in an entirely new city where no you're not allowed to use your skateboard.

The authorities are cracking down on it, you see, which means harsher penalties than tickets and plenty more obstacles to supposedly stop you rolling wherever you please.

Skate 2 has been officially unveiled as a 2009 title for PS3 and Xbox 360.

The original was a debut into the skating arena for EA, but landed its tricks neatly to score higher than genre veteran Tony Hawk's Proving Ground.
