Just hours after one of the oddest marketing tactics we’ve seen in a while, Activision has announced that its critically-acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 remakes will be rolling onto PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in March. A Switch port is also in the works, but isn’t expected to release anytime soon.
The next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will available on March 26. Although it will come free for those who already own its Digital Deluxe Edition, Standard Edition owners will need to pay a $10 fee to upgrade to the PS5 or Xbox Series X/S edition.
On these next-gen platforms, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will be capable of running at native 4K at 60 FPS, or even 1080p at 120 FPS. Buying this latest version will also net players the Ripper character DLC, as well as exclusive gear and skins for user-created skaters.
After almost a year of rumors, the collection will land on Nintendo Switch at some point in 2021, but the port does not have a specific release date or window. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will be the first title in the series to launch on a Nintendo platform since Tony Hawk Shred in 2010.
These new ports don’t exactly come as a shock. Late Monday night, Tony Hawk took to Twitter to ask the Crash Bandicoot Twitter account if additional platforms for his latest game were possible. Safe to say, the famed skateboarder got the answer he was looking for.
