'SSX Tricky' could be getting remastered, according to game's producer


There's no doubting that gaming has come on leaps and bounds over the last decade or so.

With the introduction of next-gen consoles and handheld consoles, you can literally game wherever you go now, and the graphics and quality have only gone up as well.

However, nothing beats the nostalgia feeling when it comes to gaming.

The old school days of loading up the PlayStation or the Xbox, and we're talking the original ones, not the PS2, PS3 or PS4. Or the Xbox 360 and Xbox One either.

Back in the late 90s and the early 00s, gaming was all pretty new around the world, and we were all treated to some absolute classics right from the get go.

Whether it was a shooter game, a sports game or an adventure game, it seemed like everything was covered.

Nothing beats the classics like FIFA 98, or an early Grand Theft Auto, but there's one sports game that was truly loved by most, and no, we're not talking Tony Hawk's, although that was another unbelievable game to play with your mates.

We're talking about SSX Tricky.

The snowboarding game was a true classic, and it's recently been revealed by one of the makers that it could be remastered in the near future.


Speaking to LadBible, the game's producer Steven Rechtschaffner admitted that it could be done.

He said: "Yeah, I think it could work. Xbox did a good job at re-releasing SSX 3 for Xbox One and it's beautiful actually.

"It's in the hands of SSX because they own the intellectual property. I have contemplated what it would mean, whether to remaster or even reboot the series.

"You're beholden to the expectations that people had from a long time ago. I easily think they could remaster [SSX] Tricky but there would be a tonne of work to be able to have live head-to-head competition and gameplay - just because the game wasn't architected that way.


"We actually did architect SSX 3 that way. We fully intended to make it playable online so that would be more possible."

SSX Tricky was originally released back in 2001, and was made available on a number of consoles.

However, a remastered version on one of the new consoles, with updated graphics might we add, could be the real deal.

Let that nostalgia factor kick in!
