As the fastest Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game to sell 1 million units on previously released platforms, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 blends all the original levels, pro skaters, old-school tricks, a killer soundtrack with old and new beats, and more that gamers remember from the ’90s and ’00s with new, beautifully created levels.
Next-gen upgrades for the game include 120 FPS at 1080p, native 4K at 60 FPS, sharper dynamic shadows, reflections, lens flares, enhanced skater textures, and more. The Nintendo Switch version will not have these upgrades and enhancements but the game will include both online and two-player local multiplayer.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 was developer Vicarious Vision’s last game before they officially became a part of Blizzard which means going forward, they will only be working on Blizzard titles. Currently, they are working on Diablo II: Resurrected, a full HD remake of Diablo II.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will not be the only game that releases on June 25. Also coming out that day is the next Mario sports title, Mario Golf Super Rush. The game will be utilizing the Joy-Cons to act as a golf club and will feature a story mode that has players use a Mii character. This character will come with stats that can be upgraded over time.
