Skate, Create and Share With Skate 3

Skate 3's May 14th release rolls ever closer, but Black Box aren't done with its series of insightful dev diaries just yet, as seen in the latest 'Skate and Create' video, which shows off the remarkable wealth of customisable stuff that you can share with your friends.
There's the skate park editor that enables you to drop items into the arena in real time and then physically drag them around with your skater. Then there's the improved graphics editor, which allows you to create custom visuals and logos to stamp on your skater's clothing or bespoke ramps, walls and banners in your skate park. Then why not invite a buddy to your fabricated skate heaven/hell for some co-op kickflippery?
You're also given the tools to cut together team videos and snippets of footage showing your best tricks or most spectacular and painful bail outs, which naturally you can share with the rest of the world.
A lot of this stuff might have popped up before in Skate 2, but here it looks deeper and extra intuitive. We're actually struggling to think of something Black Box might have overlooked for Skate 3, as there seems to be an editor for practically everything.
Ah - but can we edit what sort of underpants our skater wears!? Aha! They have missed something after all!
