Thrustmaster T-Freestyle NW for Skateboarding Wii

by Mark R

t-freestyle-nw_2I was at McDonalds with my kids the other day, and it was one of those with a Playplace, complete with free video games. They had this video game where the player stood on a controller that looked like a skateboard without wheels. My kids and I had a fun time trying to steer the skateboarder through a series of obstacles, and it was harder than it sounds.

Since it reminded me of the balance games on the WiiFit, I couldn’t help but wonder why a home version of this skateboarding video game hasn’t been made for the WiiFit board. Actually, there is. Skateboarding Wii has been out for a while, and Thrustmaster, maker of many game accessories, has created a peripheral for this game with the T-Freestyle NW.

All the gamer has to do is attach the genuine maple board on the WiiFit and get ready to maneuver half-pipes and rail jams just like a real skateboarder or snowboarder. It uses Rolling Motion Board technology, which allows for optimum lateral movement and steering.

The Thrustmaster T-FreeStyle NW will be available at the end of November (just in time for the holidays) for $29.99. I believe that is peripheral, plus the price of Skateboarding Wii, is probably cheaper that the Tony Hawk Ride.
