Posted by at 11:34 am on August 13, 2010

Activision has confirmed today the latest installment in its esteemed  Tony Hawk video game franchise:  Tony Hawk: SHRED.

An all-new Tony Hawk experience created for a younger audience,  SHRED allows players to go big and feel the exhilaration of supersized skate and snowboarding using the game’s innovative, motion-sensing board controller right at their feet.  This the first time a Hawk game core target is not the hard  extreme sports fan in their teens and 20s.

Featuring an arcade style look and feel, where the bigger the feat the better the fun,  SHRED is packed to the brim with larger-than-life moments and a veritable assortment of jaw-dropping tricks – enticing kids to get off the couch and into the action.

Whether riding on cement or snow,  Tony Hawk: SHRED has it covered. In addition to skateboarding, aspiring snowboarders can jump on  SHRED’s amazing board controller and go crazy i shredding down the steep mountain peaks of Whistler, the French Alps and Beijing, China as they launch off huge kickers and pull off crazy spins, flips and grabs.

“Tony Hawk: SHRED is all about experiencing over-the-top, almost unbelievable GO BIG moments throughout the game – the kind of tricks and stunts that we can only hope to achieve as our sports continue to evolve,” said Tony Hawk. “I’m also excited about including snowboarding in  SHRED, because when we originally came up with the board motion-controller, we didn’t  just have skateboarding in mind, and it’s nice to finally see that idea coming to fruition.”

Price, Rating and Availability

Tony Hawk: SHRED is in parallel development by two different studios: Robomodo for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3; and by Buzz Monkey for Wii. The game is rated “E” (Everyone – content that may be suitable for ages six and older) by the ESRB, and will be available this holiday. The pricing has not been disclosed at this time.
