Skate It coming to Wii, DS on Nov. 19

Electronic Arts Friday announced that Skate It would simultaneously arrive on Wii and DS on November 19. The Wii version of the game is the spiritual successor to last year's Skate for PS3 and Xbox 360, and is one of the first third-party games to use the Wii Balance Board beyond fitness and skiing.

Skate It received the "Best Wii Game" award at the Games Convention in Germany last month, and was nominated for Best Sports game at this year's Game Critics Awards. Skate 2 is scheduled for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 early next year.
