First came Elise, then Mac, and now a third original SSX character joins the cast of the 2012 refresh. Tokyo fun girl Kaori Nishidake adds a little black and purple to the slopes this January, and she is a wonder to behold.

Like Mac and Elise, Kaori is one of the few SSX racers that have appeared in every game in the series. Looks like we've got a trend going for these character reveals, doesn't it? If EA plans to follow through, that means that streetwise Zoe Payne will soon make her appearance known.

It just looks better every time you see it, doesn't it?
