Shaun White's Snowboarding Origins

From PocketGamer.co.uk

One of the world's best known snowboarders, Shaun White has been doing the business for a couple of years when it comes to branded console games for Ubisoft.

Now he's heading across to iPhone with another of the Guillemot brothers; Christian Guillemot's mobile entertainment publisher AMA.

Entitled Shaun White Snowboarding Origins, it's being released alongside Ubisoft's Wii game Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage.
Shaun White Snowboarding Origins is due to be slipping onto the App Store during December.

Sounds interesting, I hope they can get some pics
I don't know, there is barely any snowboarding games on the iPhone, but they're repetitive.

I'll be very interested to check it out, not just as competition for Slope Rider but also as a keen snowboarder and snowboarding game player. I'll be interested to see the pricing as well.

Now that Adrenaline Snowboarding is out, this is the new game trying to be the king (before SSX or Crazy Snowboard 2 come out of course).

i have the most recent shaun white on the psp, and i have to say, it sucks balls in comparison to ssx. the controls are absolutely diabolical. i would sincerely hope that the controls are the first thing they overhaul to port it to iPhone.

Huh, you can tell it comes from a Wii game with that cartoony Shaun White avatar. As others have said it will all come down to the controls and how the game feels.
