Skateboarding has experienced a bit of a resurgence in the land of video games over the past few years. For example, in just a few weeks the Birdman himself is bringing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 to the Nintendo Switch.

If you're looking for something a little different though, you might want to check out SkateBIRD - a game that's quite literally about birds (or "birbs") riding around on skateboards. This "avian action sports game" from Glass Bottom Games has now officially locked in a release date - it'll be dropping in on 12th August for $19.99 USD or your regional equivalent.

In SkateBIRD you'll shred micro-sized skateparks which turn everyday objects into obstacles that you can grind, flip, flutter and spin on. There are over 30 species of birds to choose from, and there'll be challenges to complete on each level to unlock new gear and more. Glass Bottom Games founder, Megan Fox, says it's a game that's all about doing your best.
