Move over Shaun White – skateboard legend Tony Hawk wants in on some of that snowboarding action, or at least in video game form.

Hawk, who is in fact an excellent snowboarder that frequently rips Mammoth Mountain, will make his first foray into snowboard video games with the latest installment to the highly successful video game series that bears his name.

“Tony Hawk: Shred” will feature both “skateboarding and snowboarding gameplay” said Activision’s Chief Operating Officer, Thomas Tippl on Thursday during a second quarter 2010 financial call. 

The game will be available for release around Thanksgiving, just in time for the holiday shopping season.
