I’ll be honest, I’m very excited for the January 2012 release of SSX. The snowboarding franchise and I go way back. I remember playing and loving SSX Tricky back in the day on the original XBOX. Since then, I’ve been waiting for a 360 version and now we’re finally getting one.
The game will feature real locations and will include helicopter drops, avalanches, and the use of wingsuits. Of course, we’ll also see the return the combo system which allows the build-up of trick points. Judging by the trailer, the game is looking just as insane as previous titles and therefore, it looks like it will be a ton of fun.
Watch Kaori pull of some wicked flips as she races through the gorgeous mountains. It’s a pretty brief look at the game but it still has me very excited. I’ve also been reading a couple positive hands on previews of the game coming out of E3 and they all say that this will likely be the best SSX title in the series.
Check out the trailer below and see what you think.
