Ride With Tony Hawk on November 17th

This article is over 14 years old and may contain outdated information

The unholy fusion of the Tony Hawk series with the Wii Fit concept will skate into stores on November 17th in the States.

Tony Hawk: Ride, the game that attempts to recreate the fun of actually skateboarding (minus the broken bones bit – we hope) in the same way that Guitar Hero attempts to recreate the fun of actually being on stage at a rock concert, will be shipping to retailers November 17th in the United States, and in the U.K. and Germany on November 20th.

Ride, which lets players skate on a skateboard-esque peripheral – also known as a platform, seeing as how it raises you about an inch off the ground – will be retailing for a cool $120. A bit steep, but considering you’ll likely be using the skateboard for Tony Hawk: Ride 2 through Tony Hawk: Ride 10, maybe not as bad a deal as it initially seems.

If you’re in Germany for whatever reason (like, say, you live there) Tony Hawk: Ride will be present at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany from August 19 to August 23.

Ride will be released on all three current-gen consoles.
