It was only a matter of time before snowboarding champion Shaun White had his own video game, and Ubisoft unveiled it at this year's Ubidays 2008 press event. There's no gameplay footage as of yet, but here's the teaser trailer for Shaun White Snowboarding, which ought to appeal to X Games fans everywhere. For the most part, games based on a sports star often turn out badly, especially when it comes to winter sports (remember the joke that was Jonny Moseley Mad Trix?). But perhaps Ubisoft will give Shaun White another victory, this time in the virtual world. After all, snowboarding really does need to have a decent effort in the video game realm.
