Wii Want Shaun White!
Ubisoft announced Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage, a Wii-exclusive sequel to the first snowboarding title based on the famous athlete.
World Stage is in development at Ubisoft Montreal, and will once again make use of the Wii's balance board for controls. As the name indicates, the game will feature locations from a half-pipe in the middle of New York's Time Square to the most prestigious competitions of France, Canada and Japan.
What can't Shaun White be involved with? The kid's blood is worth more it's weight in gold.
If you are not familiar with the infamous flying tomato, his story is quite unique. Shaun White was born September, 3 1986 with a congenital heart defect that required two open heart surgeries before he was a year old. Growing up in Southern California, Shaun learned to ski and snowboard at Big Bear and other San Bernardino Mountains.
Shaun was home schooled which allowed him to hone his skills and focus on becoming a dialed, crazy talented skateboarder, surfer and of-course, snowboarder. At 9 years old, Shaun White befriended skateboarding legend, Tony Hawk, who took white under his wing and helped him to become a pro skater by the age of seventeen.
Shaun White has incredible style and is most definitely one of the best snowboarders and skateboarders on the scene. It is rare for a young athlete to reach legendary status, but Shaun White certainly deserves it. Two cheers for the Flying Tomato Shaun White! You kill it!
