Tony Hawk muses on possible Wii Fit board skating game
Well this is promising. Wiifiit looked like it was an interesting idea but the Wiifit board was what caught most fanboys’ fancy. Or rather, the kind of games one might develop for the Wiiboard. While surfing feels like more of a natural fit, the insane popularity of the Tony Hawk skating series made it the clear winner in the category of “game most people want to use the Wiifit board to play”. Now it looks ike it just might come true:
Eurogamer: Have you seen much of Wii Fit? Do you think a Tony Hawk game would work well with the Wii Fit board?
Tony Hawk: I’ve seen a little bit of it. I think it’s possible to incorporate the Wii Fit board into one of our games, but it would change the control scheme dramatically and we’d have to figure out how to make that work. So I don’t know yet.
There’s a possibility, he says. Lemme pull a Rollin and reach for a bit and say there’s a BIG possibility considering Wii’s popularity. Assuming the bubble don’t burst, I’d expect this announcement to become formal within the next few months or so, whenever the next big game conference is. You heard it here first kids.
