EA Skate It uses Wii Balance Board

EA announced Skate It, a skating game for the Nintendo Wii and DS consoles. One of the interesting things is that this game will support the Wii Balance Board that ships with Wii Fit.
IGN: I understand that the Wii version of the game will utilize the Wii balance board. Is this a mandatory option or will you be able to play Skate It without it? What sort of abilities will you be able to do with the Balance Board?

Scott Blackwood: Of course, you can play Skate without the Wii Balance Board, but you'd be missing out on a next level of immersiveness if you did. Hey, did that help sell Balance Boards…where's my cut? In all seriousness, the game plays super fun with or without the Balance Board, but if you want to really feel your carves and control your manuals, I'd advise you to skate a Balance Board version of the game. People that try it really seem to be digging it, and we're still discovering new and cool ways to integrate it daily.
