Twenty years after its debut, the classic Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games you love are coming back.

Activision announced on Tuesday that both Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are launching later this year in a remastered state.

The announcement comes after recent rumors surrounding the return of the series.

The games will feature the original lineup of skaters, both career modes, and most of the original soundtracks. Not all of the tracks will be back, but we do know songs from bands like Goldfinger, Powerman 5000, Bad Religion, Rage Against The Machine, and Papa Roach will be in the game.

When it comes to move sets, the remaster will have all of the tricks you remember from the prior games, but it will also introduce tricks that weren’t in the first two installments. For the controls, there will be the ability to bounce between classic (button-based) and modern (control stick-based) controls to allow you to play the game how you prefer.

Each game’s career mode will remain separate from each other. However, you can carry over your skater from one game to the other as a continuation rather than starting from scratch after completing the first one.

As far as visuals go, Activision is promising 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second as well as updated likenesses for the skaters.

Online multiplayer will include Graffiti and Scoring Challenge while the Create-a-Park mode that debuted in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 is also coming back with each park being able to be shared online. You’ll also be able to change up classic venues with the editor.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 Remaster launches September 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Those who preorder the game will get to try it out early with a demo of the Warehouse this summer.
