- The remaster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will feature some of today's top pro skaters.
The genre-defining Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise made its mark on videogames in the ‘90s touting the top names in skateboarding at the time. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are being remastered with a September 4 release. While keeping true to the original game, it will also feature some of today’s top pro skaters.
Tony Hawk has been a staple name in pro skating, with the games taking his name. Nyjah Huston, Leo Baker, Leticia Bufoni, Aori Nishimura, Lizzie Armanto, Shane O’Neill, Riley Hawk, and Tyshawn Jones are joining the lineup of OGs in the remaster.
“Modern-day skateboarding originated from a generation of skaters who grew up playing the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games,” said Michelle Bresaw, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Activision. “The world-class pro skaters we’re adding to this remaster took the tricks and combos from the videogame and made them possible in real life. We’re proud that the remaster will represent the skate culture landscape today with a diverse roster of skaters that will appeal to any gamer.”
While some of the new pros have appeared in past Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will mark the first time that they will be part of the original two games from the franchise. The new additions will bring their own signature tricks to all the levels and gameplay features that fans love about the games.
The remastered versions will blend all the original levels, old-school tricks, and more that gamers remember with recreated levels to provide fans with stunning gameplay experiences. It will also integrate fan-favorite features from games across the entire original franchise, not just the first two games, including revert, lip tricks, wall plants, and original multiplayer game modes, both online and for local couch play. Create-A-Skater modes are also back with the remaster and players will be able to share parks online with friends and outfit skaters with customization options.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 is already available for pre-order and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the family of Xbox One devices from Microsoft, including the Xbox One X, and on PC through the Epic platform. Those that pre-order the game digitally will get access to the Warehouse Demo starting on August 14 ahead of the game’s official launch.
The game will be available worldwide for the suggested retail price in the U.S. of $39.99. A digital deluxe version that includes unique content and in-game gear will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.99. For the ultimate fan, a collector’s edition will be available for the suggested retail price of $99.99 in the U.S., complete with the digital deluxe content and a limited-run Birdhouse deck.
