Ubisoft announces the creation of Shaun White Skateboarding, a video game in development with dual-sport professional athlete and two-time Olympic gold medalist, Shaun White. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Shaun White Skateboarding will arrive this holiday 2010.
As the first skateboarding game in the best-selling Shaun White video game franchise, Shaun White Skateboarding will provide an innovative twist and fresh take on the skateboarding and action-sports genre.
"I can’t describe how excited I am about the skateboard game,” said Shaun White. “We’ve been working on it for a while now and it’s ready to melt minds."
The first athlete to win both gold medals in skateboarding and snowboarding at the Summer and Winter X Games, Shaun White brings a unique perspective to development of video games.
“As we’ve just seen at the Olympics, Shaun is a one-of-kind action sports athlete,” said Tony Key, U.S. senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “Shaun’s enthusiasm for skateboarding shines through in this truly unique game.”
