Remember the good ol’ days, coming home from school and running to your room to play some Tony Hawk Pro Skater. I remember it like it was yesterday.
At this year’s Summer Game Fest, Activison announced that they’re working with Vicarious Vision to remaster the classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 games! Today is Tony Hawk’s birthday and in celebration he posted the news on his Twitter saying “Happy birthday to me!” with a photo advertising the remastered games and the release date of September 4th, 2020. The games will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The remastered versions will have the same skaters, tricks, game modes and soundtrack! I think this game is one of the reasons I started to get into alternative rock and punk music.
If you know you’re going to end up buying this game, I suggest you consider pre-ordering it to get access to some great bonuses! First, the digital pre-order gets you access to the Warehouse Demo ahead of the game launch. Not only that, but you’ll also get a limited-edition Tony Hawk mini fingerboard gift. Do you remember how popular these were? I used to collect them as a kid! Oh, the throwback.
This announcement got me thinking: What video games would you like to see remastered that you used to play when you were younger? Comment below!
