E3 2002: Evolution Skateboarding screenshots

Take a look at Konami's answer to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.


Konami has released new screenshots of its forthcoming skateboarding game, Evolution Skateboarding. While we have yet to get our hands on the game itself, we did see a short video trailer on display at a private Konami event earlier in the day, and from the looks of it, Evolution Skateboarding seems to be aimed squarely at Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series.

The footage depicted several skaters jumping off ramps, grinding on rails, and stringing together combos for points, and the levels shown included a pair of skate parks filled with onlookers, as well as a warehouse level. Interestingly enough, some footage also showed off Solid Snake grinding and performing ollies with the best of them in none other than the Big Shell level from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Konami says that Snake and Big Shell are both unlockable in the game.

We'll have hands-on impressions of Evolution Skateboarding from the show floor during E3. In the meantime, be sure to take a look at this latest batch of screenshots of the game.
