Top snowboarder Shaun White has declared that he is "stoked" to be working on a new set of snowboarding games with Ubisoft.

White, who is just 19, which would explain why he uses words like "stoked", is a six time X Games gold medallist and the only snowboarder to win the gold medal for both halfpipe and slopestyle. At this year's Winter Olympics he picked up another gold medal for doing all manner of back-to-back 1080 degree rotations.

"I'm stoked to be working with Ubisoft to develop a video game that captures the thrill of snowboarding like no game has done before," White said.

"I'm a huge fan of Ubisoft games like Prince of Persia, so I'm excited to be able to combine what I love about snowboarding and gaming into an experience for everyone to enjoy."

A Ubisoft bigwig said they were jolly happy as well.
