Sk8 and the Elemental Gods is a game for the Wii U and Nintendo GT, a sequel to the positevely recieved Sk8 and the Board of Power. It is the first game that was released under Popple Co.'s new name, Universal Rift.
Taking place several months after the first game's ending, 0- is still floating around in space after his defeat, suddenly, a strange blue force surrounds him and pulls him back into the planet. This is revealed to be the demon assistant to the god of the underworld, Despito, the demon's name is Imply. Imply is tired of taking orders from his master, and longs to overthrow and plans on using 0- to become the master of the gods, but after upgrading him with cybernetics, Imply is betrayed by 0-, who journeys to the Celestial Court and imprisons the gods, using each as a power source.
Meanwhile, Sk8 and his friends are sharing a picnic down in a field, Sk8 goes off to pick some flowers for Fl4a, when he discovers something odd; Some plants are becoming ridiculously overgrown! He then hears a scream and discovers that his friends are in Shadowy Cages, both being held by the tentacles of 0-, now wearing the Falcon Crest, a crown worn by the leader of the gods (formerly Crestia) he takes Rix6 and Fl4a to the Shadow Court and whacks Sk8 into the distance.
When Sk8 wakes up he finds himself being cared for by his brother, S2art, and Bord. Sk8 is visited by an angel who has escaped from 0-'s wrath, fittingly named Angela, who asks Sk8 for help to get all the gods back in the Celestial Court, Sk8, with help from S2art, Bord, and Boop, decides to go off and save his friends, free the gods, and defeat 0-!
After journeying through 11 areas and rescuing Despito, the god tells Sk8 that Crestia, and Sk8's friends, are being held in the Celestial Court. The gods band together to grant Sk8 their powers and he flies to the Celestial Court. When he arrives, 0- is there waiting for him, and the two battle it out. When the large eyeball creature is beaten by Sk8, he latches himself to Rix6, taking over his body and turning the once friendly Rix6 into a more powerful Rix Negative! Crestia tells Sk8 that the only thing that can combat the Falcon Crest is the combined power of the gods, granting Sk8 her power. Sk8 flies off into the sky and combats Rix- in an epic battle, eventually the crest is knocked off of Rix6's head, Sk8 saves Rix6 and the crest is caught by Crestia, but 0- falls (presumably to his death) back to the Mortal ground. Crestia thanks Sk8 and makes him and honorary god, the God of Unity. Sk8 returns to the mortal ground with Fl4a and Rix6 and continue their picnic.
After the credits, 0- and Imply are revealed to be imprisoned in Despito's underworld prison, Imply comments that there is no point in locking up of dead guy, but 0- disengrates, and turns into small, green versions of himself, which proceed to release Imply, but Imply's loud screams are heard as the parasitic 0- multiplies, and his glasses are thrown to side, implying that the parasites ate him.

One of the main problems with the first game is the controls were slippy on the GT version, but this was fixed in this game with the addition of the Sk8 Brake Attachment. The Wii U controls were credited as spot-on as usual. In both versions the analog sticks are to move around, the A button is to jump, the X and Y buttons are to shoot, and the B button is to summon Bord.
