SSX release window opens up, dated for January 2012

The franchise that once sent snowboarders on a cold, snowy, mountainous roller coaster ride down extremely steep slopes, is set for a reboot going by the name of SSX. That’s just in case you missed it.

Now that you’re caught up, it was revealed during an EA showcase for the press that the next iteration in the series is scheduled for a January 2012 release, which as GameSpot points out, would be in the middle of the 2011-2012 ski season. It would be odd to release it any other time, wouldn’t it?

SSX will be out next year then, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Excited about it? If not, consider one or two dev diaries or the fresh batch of screenshots first and then proceed to answering that question.
