It’s official – Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch!
Publisher Activision and developer Vicarious Visions have officially revealed that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will be released on the Switch. This comes hours after a rather unexpected and interesting exchange between the official Tony Hawk’s, Activision and Nintendo accounts earlier today on Twitter.
You can check out the trailer announcing this release below:
The upcoming, next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will give players a variety of upgrades, such as super crisp 120 frames per second at 1080P, native 4K at 60 frames per second, spatial audio and more, while the game on Nintendo Switch will give fans the chance to ollie with Tony Hawk and the line-up of pro-skaters on-the-go.
As the fastest Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game to sell one million units, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a faithful remaster of the first two iconic games in the franchise, blending all the original levels, pro-skaters, old-school tricks, and more that gamers remember from the 1990s and 2000s with new, beautifully recreated levels.
High-fidelity atmospherics will be added to the next-gen upgrade for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. This unique graphical feature will allow players to enjoy the experience of sharper dynamic shadows, reflections and lens flares, as well as enhanced skater textures and more on next-gen consoles.
Digital players can upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle with all the added features for an additional $10 SRP. The upgrade includes access to the secret skater Ripper (a.k.a. the infamous Powell-Peralta mascot), retro gear for Create-A-Skater mode, and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen. Additionally, Activision Blizzard, Inc. is giving fans who already own the digital deluxe version of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One a next-gen upgrade at no cost (except in Japan) on March 26. See the official website for upgrade details.
Do take note that while the next-gen console versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 have been given a March 26 release date, the Switch version has only been confirmed to come out this year with no specific date just yet. We will report back on this title as we hear more, so stay tuned!
