Tony Hawk: Ride developer Robomodo clearly sees success in the skateboarding franchise's reboot, as it's already planning to start work on the sequel once the board-controller equipped game hits. Oh, I know. I was surprised too.

Robomodo president Josh Tsui tells IndustryGamers that the developer, who took the reins of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise from Neversoft, is working sequel planning into its current schedule. Tsui also sees the Ride controller as "almost like a platform unto itself." Sound familiar?

Tsui says the board has "an immense amount of flexibility behind it," envisioning that the peripheral... sorry, the platform can be used for more than just skateboarding. Like... hoverboarding?! Will we finally get a worthwhile video game adaptation of Back to the Future II?
