The last time we spoke with Shaun White on The 404 , he was promoting his multiplatform video game Shaun White Snowboarding. We got to sit down with the Olympic gold medal winner again this week at an Ubisoft event in lower Manhattan where he explained what's new in Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage, an exclusive title for the Wii.

With the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver around the corner, World Stage focuses on taking snowboarding globally. The game will once again take advantage of the Wii Balance Board, allowing you to sway back and forth like you're actually carving down a mountain.

The title also improves on many fronts; you notice better board responsiveness in addition to more playable characters (including Shaun himself) and an overhauled graphical presentation. There are tons of new environments to ride through including one that blew us away: a surreal halfpipe stage smacked right in the center of Times Square.

Make sure to watch our full interview with Shaun where he tells us about lending his voice to the game, what we can expect from the soundtrack, and how he's preparing for the 2010 Winter Olympic games in Vancouver.
