Skateboarding used to be cool before HD but now it can be cool in 4K! Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 (=’s 3?) is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch!
Tony Hawk’s™ Pro Skater™ 1 and 2 makes its way to PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 26 and lands on Nintendo Switch™ for the first time in 2021. The upcoming, next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will give players a variety of upgrades, such as super crisp 120 FPS at 1080P, native 4K at 60 FPS, 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.
Nintendo Switch gets cool features like… well, at least you get to play the game. I freaking love that last line!
Business Wire reveals that Tony Hawk went to Crash Bandicoot himself asking for help in getting the game to Next Gen Consoles (and Switch…).
Crash, whose Bandicoot-branded swag appeared in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 this past November, leveraged his clout in exchange for a personal skating lesson from the original birdman himself, resulting in playful Twitter banter between the two videogame icons.
The Next Gen Upgrades will allow players to enjoy sharper dynamic shadows, reflections and lens flares, along with enhanced skater textures and more while crashing and burning in 4K 60FPS (it doesn’t help you skate any better tho)!
Business Wire also has details on a Deluxe Cross-Gen Bundle.
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. (NASDAQ: ATVI) 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.
