Skate 2 Screenshots Feature Aerial Art

EA Black Box's skateboarding sequel has gained eight new screenshots today. There's one person in each shot, making for sixteen feet in the whole set of shots. Fifteen of those feet are not on the ground, opening up the potential for a lot of tricky awesomeness--or just a lot of pain.

These feet, due to their screenshot nature, are permanently suspended in air, leaving the skaters' fates to the viewer's interpretation. Whether you're a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty type, Skate 2 will land in early 2009 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
