The professional skateboarder grew up playing the popular 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' games series, and would love to have his own-branded title, but admits the gaming industry is tough to break into.

Speaking at the Dew Tour Am Series, hosted by Mountain Dew - who he is signed to - Sean exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Not only does a game like that have to make money it has to make a ton of money.

"We'll see, maybe one day, skating is in the Olympics now, so maybe a video game will be produced.

"I grew up on those Tony Hawk games so I would love to have that again."

Even if he cannot get his own game made, Sean is hoping to see more skateboarding titles created for consoles.

He added: "We're just trying to get more skate games in general.

"We've been campaigning, make EA skate again. The gaming world is tough, though.

"I don't really get it but I know there's a lot of money in that industry so the game has to do extremely well for them to want to keep doing it."

The star would've found it particularly useful last weekend when he flew into Barcelona to put on a professional skateboarding masterclass for the Dew Tour Am Series crowd.

He added: "Maybe they'll make a Barcelona map so I can skate it on the way over here and then skate it in real life."

Sean watched on as Spain's Roger Silva won the Dew Tour event with a host of impressive tricks to land himself a place at the 2018 Summer Dew Tour in the United States, where he will compete in the amateur division.
