Motocross Pro Returns to MX Vs ATV


We’ve got some happy news to report from the team over at Nordic Games. A factory Kawasaki rider, 250cc East champion, and pro Motocross racer turned game developer Stephane Roncada has returned to the Phoenix-based developer to help them make the new MX vs ATV the best darn game it can be!

Rocanda has been working in the video game industry for over fifteen years and was also a part of the team that put together the original MX Vs ATV game way back in 2005. “I’m thrilled to return to the MX vs. ATV team at Rainbow Studios,” Roncada remarked. “I enjoy making video games tremendously, but to have the opportunity to develop motocross games again is extra special. It gives me the opportunity to bring what I found most fun and exciting about real racing to many people at home, who might not have the opportunity to race Supercross for real”.


And its not just Rocanda who is happy to be back on the job, the people at Nordic Games are also quite excited to have a real life Motocross racer on the team. “We are very excited for ‘Ron Ron’ to join our design team of former Rainbow Studios developers, designers and artists. Adding someone of this caliber who’s competed at the highest level of the sport will only ensure a very bright future for the series”, added  Ken George, studio head and MX vs. ATV Supercross Executive Producer.

Originally developed by THQ’s Rainbow Studios in 2011, the MX Vs ATV franchise was thrown into limbo when THQ closed their doors. It was just last year that Nordic Games picked up the rights to the series, and form a team made up of both the original developers from Rainbow Studios and other pros from the Phoenix Area to create the newest game in the MX Vs ATV series that will launch on October 7th.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
