Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 prepares to reach new platforms. Tony Hawk’s official Twitter account has hinted at the news by interacting with others such as Activision or Crash Bandicoot, and even Nintendo has made a guide that will confirm a version for Nintendo Switch. In the original message the well-known skateboarder says he heard that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will launch on more platforms and feel “jealous”. Hawk refers to that Crash 4 debuts in March for Switch, PS5 and Xbox Series X / S – the update is free for PS4 and Xbox One users.
The text is not innocent, since the account of Crash has forwarded to Activision who responds with a suspicious look. Nintendo of America has also entered the conversation which points to a launch on Switch, in addition to possible graphical improvements on Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5. That s, in principle these versions will not be in charge of the developer of the remake, Vicarius Visions, which is now part of Blizzard – are responsible for Diablo 2: Resurrected-.

The return of the saga in style
Following top-down quality releases and deliveries that nearly buried the saga Tony Hawk, Activision was encouraged to redo the first two 32-bit games again. It was not the first time they were remastered – they did it with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD– but this time he made a deeper change that was launched last September to excellent reviews and sales It was the fastest-selling of the series.
“We are not going to deny that, on the one hand, a third remake / remastering of these two games seems excessive to us, but after Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, we signed a remake as careful as this as many times as necessary. Nonetheless, they are two of the best games ever, and they hold up incredibly well. We know each and every one of their memory levels, and yet we have had a great time rediscovering them with their new graphics and new options, “we commented in their analysis.” We believe that Vicarious Visions has managed to keep the essence and expand it with great success, and we have no doubt that we are going to spend a lot of time playing this game. As soon as you like the saga and get nostalgic, you have to give it a try. “
