Let the onsluaght of hideous press release statements begin. Set your faces to 'cringe'...
"I am extremely proud of our innovative partnership with Nintendo with our EA SPORTS BIG titles," said John Schappert, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA Canada. "Mario, Peach and Luigi are among the greatest videogame characters of all time and we are thrilled to include them in SSX On Tour."
"When Electronic Arts put a basketball in Mario's hand, he did quite well," said Reggie Fils-Aime, executive vice president, sales and marketing, for Nintendo of America Inc. "Now Mario and crew are hitting the slopes thanks to a successful and creative partnership between Nintendo and EA. Mario has traveled in snow before, but never this fast. Let's hope his mustache doesn't freeze."
Dear God no. Anyway, the game is meant to be quite good fun, and we've always enjoyed the SSX games, and hopefully this one will be more different. It is out very soon, and we will have full review coverage for you.
