Many video game series have fan-created timelines based on information given in the games (or through other sources). I realized we didn't have one for SSX, so here goes!

Using the first game as a basis, I will take for granted that it takes place in the year of 2000, the same year in which the game came out. Then you can use the age of the characters presented in their profiles to figure out how much time that passes between each game. At first glance, it's actually quite surprising how much thought EA gave into the age of the characters in-between the games - Most characters' age actually matches up very well with the year the games should take place in. Between SSX and SSX Tricky most characters age 1 year, which makes sense since the games came out one year apart. Although there are some characters who have a bit confusing ages: Kaori for example ages 2 years between SSX and SSX Tricky, whereas JP doesn't age at all but stays the same. However, for the sake of easement I've still decided to follow the original intention of having SSX Tricky taking place 1 year after the events of the first game. JP and Kaori's confusing ages could easily be explained by them being born in a very early of late month of the year.

SSX Blur is the only game which doesn't take place in the same year as it was released, since the characters' ages are exactly +1 from SSX 3 and -1 from SSX On Tour.

I've also decided to completely disregard the ending credits of SSX On Tour that explained what happens to the characters after the tour, since I got the impression that those were not serious and just played for jokes.

I've also discovered that the timeline of the SSX series makes for some very interesting theories regarding the various circuits, and how future games could expand on these.


- SSX World Circuit
(events of the first SSX)

- SSX World Circuit II
(events of SSX Tricky)

- SSX World Circuit III

- SSX Big Mountain Tour
(events of SSX 3)

- SSX Big Mountain Tour II
(events of SSX Blur)

- SSX On Tour
(events of SSX on Tour)

- No SSX tournaments took place

- Team SSX presents: The Deadly Descents
(events of SSX 2012)

So the interesting part of this timeline is that there is a two year gap between SSX Tricky and SSX 3. DJ Atomika states in SSX 3 that it took around 2 years to turn the BIG mountain into a SSX circuit, but I'd like to imagine that this means there was a third world circuit in the year of 2002, which could potentially be used as a basis for a future SSX game.
