Seems like 2020 is the year of the skateboarding video game comeback. With Skater XL coming in July, Session in early access and nearing full release, Activision wants to remind people what made skateboarding games blow up – Tony Hawk!
Activision announced Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 Remastered is launching on September 4, 2020. The remastered version of the games will blend the original levels, tricks, pro skaters, plus the original soundtrack.
“The original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series is a big factor in the evolution of modern skateboarding tricks and inspiring many of the pro skaters you know and love today,” Tony Hawk said in a statement. “I’m excited to help inspire a new generation of skateboarders and gamers – and existing fans – to grow the sport even further.”
The games are being remastered by Vicarious Visions, the same team behind the recent Crash Bandicoot remasters. The remasters will also include the Create-A-Park and Create-A-Skater modes with more features and tools. Check out the announcement trailer below:
