What's the price of nostalgia? $7.99, according to Electronic Arts. The newly rebooted SSX will be getting a blast from the past with its upcoming Mt. Eddie & Classic Characters Bundle Pack.
Mt. Eddie is a brand new "ultra-long" mountain that features 9 new Race and Trick drops, and promises to offer the "huge kickers, ridiculous grinds" of classic SSX games. The mountain even includes two music tracks from the previous games.
Seven retro SSX characters from SSX 3 and Tricky can also be added into the game. Each character will also include a unique snowboard.
The combined bundle will be available for $7.99 on May 1st, but the mountain and characters can also be purchased separately for $5.99 each. Fans on EA Sports' Facebook page seem largely enthused about the release, but some have predictably complained that "all this should of been in the game since the beginning."
