Shaun White Skateboarding Game Announced
I was blown away by the Flying Tomatoe’s snowboarding half-pipe final runs in the Olympics. I asked myself, is there no limits to what this guy can do? Yesterday, in a radio interview, Shaun White announced he is taking the dominance from the snow to the street with a Shaun White skateboarding game.
“I can’t describe how excited I am about the skateboard game,” said Shaun White. “We’ve been working on it for a while now and it’s ready to melt minds.”
