Tony Hawk: SHRED Confirmed To Get Kids Off of the Couch
In addition to skateboarding, aspiring snowboarders can jump onto the motion-sensing board controller and experience the rush of shredding down the mountain peeks of Whistler, the French Alps and Beijing, China as they pull of some intense grabs and spins and flips.
Tony Hawk himself was quoted saying “Tony Hawk: SHRED is all about experiencing over-the-top, almost unbelievable GO BIG moments throughout the game – the kind of tricks and stunts that we can only hope to achieve as our sports continue to evolve. I’m excited about including snowboarding in SHRED, because when we originally came up with the board motion-controller, we didn’t just have skateboarding in mind, and it’s nice to finally see that idea come to fruition.”
The full list of pro skate and snowboarders include Tony Hawk, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, Corey Duffel, Sean Malto, David Gonzalez, Geoff Rowley, Steve Williams, Chaz Ortiz, Travis Rice, Louie Vito and Olympic Gold Medalist Torah Bright. Additionally, players will have access to Mii versions of all the pro athletes in the game on Wii, and can import their own Mii and Avatar characters in the Wii and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
Some new screens have surfaced for the Xbox 360 and Wii, showing us what to expect from this title. Check them out after the break.
