Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will finally be coming to new consoles later this year. The complete remaster of the classic skateboarding games has been announced for several new platforms today, including the Switch.
When the first release of the remaster came out last September, fans were understandably excited. Now those critically-acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 remakes will make the jump to next-gen. It has also been confirmed that the pair of games are coming to the Nintendo Switch as well.
There is one major drawback though. The free upgrade to the PS5/XSX versions is only free for those who own the Digital Deluxe Edition. Anyone else playing the current-gen variants will have to pay a $10 to unlock the new version on the PS5 or Series X. That kind of sucks, but it is exactly the kind of thing I would expect from a company like Activision.
Check out the trailer for the new ports down below.
The Switch port was confirmed when a rather odd interaction was noticed on Twitter. Tony Hawk and the Crash Bandicoot Twitter page got into a little lighthearted discussion about the possibility of the two working together. Then, Nintendo jumped into the fray. The whole thing was basically a bizarre way of social media accounts announcing a Switch port for the remasters.
The next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will available on March 26. The two remastered versions of the classic skateboarding games will include all the content from both the first two games. And that includes the Switch version too. These two versions are what many would consider the ideal way to play these classic PS1 era games. They feature some of the amazing music of the era, including a revised soundtrack full of modern hits. It all certainly has that feel of a revamped classic.
