So far there aren't any SSX3 stars in the new SSX. The studio is planning "a series" of blogs from producer Sean Smillie discussing character inspirations.
"Sticking with series tradition and introducing new characters in each iteration, we switch gears and reveal the first new one coming to SSX. Please welcome Tane Mumea to the SSX Universe," blurbed the SSX Facebook page.
"Starting this Thursday, look out for the first in a series of Character Inspiration Blogs from Producer Sean Smillie who will provide some context around the new and returning characters." SSX releases on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.
