Legendary Skateboard Game Tony Hawk 1 & 2 set to be Remastered
So 2020 is kinda lame right now you’ve got to admit it, but all of this time has allowed many people to reflect on what they have done over the years and this is true with legendary Skateboarder Tony Hawk. So let’s rewind and go back to 1999, the year where the very first Tony hawk’s Pro Skater was released. Grinding your virtual skateboard against everything, defying gravity by making big air moves whilst listening to Golden Finger – Superman, these were the days right?
Well, fast forward back to 2020, because it has been announced that not one but two of the Tony Hawks iconic pro skater games are to be remastered and the graphics in the announcement trailer look great. So get those knee pads on, your helmet and your pair of Vans Sk8-Hi’s, because Skate boarding is about to hit the big time again.
The two titles will be sold as one “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2” package, and will feature every level and pro skater found in the originals — now in glorious 4K, with all of the 3D models and levels recreated from scratch. Also returning is most of the original soundtrack; licensing changes over the years prevent the remake’s soundtrack from being exhaustive, but most of the jams you remember should still be there.
Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 & 2 will be picking up a few tricks that didn’t appear in the series until the third installment — perhaps most notable are reverts, which let you build absolutely massive combos and hit otherwise impossible scores.
Another big feature coming to the remakes that the originals lacked: online multiplayer. You’ll be able to play any level online with friends, or share levels you’ve pieced together in the “Create-A-Park” editor.
The remastered version of these iconic games are set to release on PS4, XBOX and PC on September 4th, 2020. Pre-orders will gain access to the Warehouse demo. Surprisingly, there is no mention of a Nintendo Switch version just yet, but we wouldn’t rule it out as it seems perfect for the handheld console.
