After seeing the rumors circulate online for a while we now have definite proof that Tony Hawks Pro Skater is indeed getting a remaster! Not only that, it’s coming as a 2 pack! That’s right 2 games for the price of one.
Following the success of other remasters in recent years it comes as no surprise that Activision would want us to forget all about the disaster that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 turned out to be. It was rushed out as broken because their contract was about to run out.
For a lot of fans we worried that this would be the end of the beloved series, but today, Tony Hawk himself tweeted the below picture giving us out first glimpse of what the game could look like alongside a release date of September 4th.
I for one will be grabbing this on launch day, it’s without a doubt one of my favorite series growing up. Between the soundtrack and mechanics it made for an amazing series throughout. Activision released a trailer and below is a comparison of the remaster to the original
Only the other day I covered a game here that I said had a very Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater feel in the form of Wave Break – http://budgetnostalgia.com/?p=365. So you can imagine my excitement for this.
Will you be grabbing this when it launches later in the year? Let me know in the comments
