Rejoice Switch gamers, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will release on Nintendo’s latest console June 25.
This news was initially teased toward back in February when Activision announced that the faithful remaster of the legendary skating title would arrive on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in March. At the time it was confirmed the Switch would see a release but no specific date was shared. Now Nintendo gamers can expect to get their Tony Hawk fix just in time for summer.
Of course, the Switch’s Tony Hawk adaptation won’t feature quite the same graphical leap as the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. However, the original levels, pro skaters, old-school tricks, and incredible soundtrack will all be there for player’s enjoyment.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 was met with high praise critically when it returned on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The next-gen remake was also received positively. We can only hope that more games from the Tony Hawk back catalog get the remaster treatment. From 1999-2004, Activision released banger after banger. For that six year stretch, it seemed like the Tony Hawk franchise couldn’t miss.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 is available for pre-order now. The game retails for $39.99.
