Developer Crea-ture Studios and publisher Nacon have announced a free update, available now, to ‘Session: Skate Sim’ featuring a collaboration with Paramount Pictures’ and Viacom’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’. This update adds the four green Turtles—Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael—to the game’s roster alongside new skateboards, clothes, camera filters, and a Sewer map. And of course, a fair chunk of bug fixes:
General de-bug & Fixes:- Mission Log status saved on reboot: “Untracked” missions previously became “Tracked” in the Mission Log on a reboot – this is fixed and track status is now persistent
– Scoop speed control
We have added the ability to dictate the speed of scooped tricks by managing the relative speed of the scoop input. Therefore a slow scoop on a shuv-it will lead to a slow shuv, and vice versa. Arc-length has now been cut as a scoop input method.
– Board pitch in Manual board control is dictated by the angle of the trick input and is now maintained for the duration of the trick – helping in landing orientation for grinds, manuals, and landing in banks!
– Board flip offset adjustments – Board position under player has been improved – as shared by Donovan on Instagram
– Camera – Fisheye camera lens has been revamped to improve granularity and improve fidelity.
– Other general debug fixes…
– Bug fixes on apparel
– Suck clothing integrated
