Ubisoft has just released a press wire announcing a new sports title for your handhelds, Shaun White Snowboarding on the Go. It’s coming out in under a month, too, with a November 13, 2008 street date for both the DS and the PSP.

So what is this game all about? If you’re into snowboarding, the name Shaun White will most probably ring a bell — a lot of bells. Who is he? Oh, he’s only the Olympic Gold Medalist and eight-time X Games Gold Medalist. No biggie.

While we’re sure you can’t top that just yet, maybe this game can provide for you some pseudo-training with the snowboarding champ himself, cos this was developed in close collab with him. The game’s been built from the ground up for each platforms, so you can expect that both will have their own exclusive content and unique features. And as personalizing stuff are all the rage today, you can also customize your own rides, as well as challenge your friends via the wireless multiplayer.
