Over the previous months, EA has confirmed a total of ten new or returning characters for the latest instalment in their snowboarding franchise, SSX
. Over half of these now have comic book trailers. Series veteran Elise Riggs was the first to receive her trailer
, followed by trailers for two more returning characters, Kaori Nishidake and Moby Jones
. The next two trailers were reserved for Mac Fraser and Psymon Stark
. Now, another of the series stalwarts, Zoe Payne, gets her comic book trailer:
You may be wondering about the other four characters. Well, the final returning character was confirmed to be Griffin Simmons. Alex Moreau and Tane Mumea are two new characters to the series. Although the three are yet to receive their own trailers, the links to their comic books are here
