This is confirmed. 100 percent. Cammie Dunaway will be showing up in Shaun White 2 on the Wii as a playable character. I’m not lying… oh, I can’t keep this up. This is most likely a joke from some clever employee at Game, the UK gaming retailer, but it’s frickin hilarious. The box art that Game’s site shows for Shaun White Snowboarding: World Stage claims that the game features Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo’s VP of Marketing. It’s pretty clearly a joke as the box art is the exact same as the first game, but bravo to Game for having a sense of humor and not ripping it down yet (as of this writing).
In case you forgot or blocked out one of the worst E3 press conferences ever, one of the lower points of a conference full of low points was Cammie demonstrating Shaun White Snowboarding and its balance board controls. It was embarrassing and awkward and really didn’t demonstrate what turned out to be a decently fun snowboarding game very well. My hope is that Ubisoft sees this and puts her in the game. Of course that would never happen because Nintendo would have their lawyers all over them, but damn would it be funny. Her character could keep falling over and then talk about her kids.
