The trick is to SSX it; new dev diary out

Not too long ago, we found ourselves watching the first SSX Deadly Descents – which as of recently got renamed to a more simplistic and reboot-worthy SSX – developer diary with the Vancouver-based EA Canada studio explaining how and in what ways they will be reviving the franchise.

Just about a week has passed and we get the second one, which is all about the tricks and how to make them work in the vast, death-inviting and steep slopes of the mountains. Also, it actually shows off a good few seconds of gameplay footage too. Not much to hang in the tree, but hey, it’s more than a bit of nothing.

SSX is presumably set for a holiday 2011 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, because playing a snowboard game in the middle of any other season than winter would just be bizarrely weird.
