The skateboarding remake collection launches early September.
Tony Hawk was once one of the biggest franchises in the games industry, and an entire generation of audiences have a fond memory of it. Soon, it will be returning, hopefully with a bang, thanks to Vicarious Visions’ duo of remakes in Tony Haw’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. And though the game is still a couple of weeks away from release, we already have a launch trailer for it. Take a look below.
Tony Hawk, the man himself, has had great things to say about the upcoming release, saying “hardcore fans of our original series are going to be satisfied and probably overwhelmed by how good this is.” The game’s nostalgic soundtrack has been revealed, but in addition to some returning favourites, several new tracks will also be joining the list. Meanwhile, in addition to all the skaters from the original games, some new faces will be showing up as well.
Thanks to datamining of the game’s recent demo, there’s been some evidence to suggest that a Switch version might also be in the works, though Activision have made no official announcements yet.
Another recent datamine of the demo uncovered files mentioning possible hidden returning characters. Read more on that through here.
