Ubisoft Reinvents Action Sports Video Games with Shaun White Snowboarding

Olympic Gold Medalist and Sports Superstar Partners with Ubisoft to Push the Boundaries of Video Games and Bring the Action Sports Lifestyle to Consumers Like Never Before

Today Ubisoft announces the development of Shaun White Snowboarding, a title destined to break all former action sports video game notions and redefine the action sports genre. The game will appear on the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, Windows-based PC, and the Wii, and is scheduled for release in Holiday 2008.

Powered by the award-winning Assassin's Creed engine for Xbox 360 and the PLAYSTATION 3 system, Shaun White Snowboarding truly captures the action sports lifestyle. Shaun White Snowboarding is being developed from the ground up for the Wii system, taking full advantage of the Wii Balance Board accessory and featuring its own unique storyline and adventure with Shaun White.

"Shaun White Snowboarding will turn all of the traditional ideas and experiences of past action sports titles upside down,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "The combination of Ubisoft's innovation approach and the influence of Shaun's lifestyle and perspective make this gaming experience like no other.”

Developed in close collaboration with Shaun White, Olympic Gold Medalist and eight-time X Games Gold Medalist, Shaun White Snowboarding allows players to enter a world of total freedom, where they can create their own experience and choose how, where, and with whom they want to ride.
