Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is a skateboarding franchise that changed the landscape of skateboarding video games. These games allowed players to pull off insane skate tricks like they were skating deities.
It’s one of the most popular gaming series let alone skating series. And it’s getting a remastered version. Specifically, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are being re-worked with better visuals, mechanics, and features.
That will give fans the chance to experience this series like never before, as well as introduce this impactful franchise to new fans of this generation. The game is being developed by Vicarious Visions and based on early impressions, these two games look like a lot of fun and much more vibrant than ever before.
A new trailer is out now for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, which provides a launch date of September 4, 2020. Not too long now before skating enthusiasts can once again play as the Birdman, pulling off incredible tricks like the 900 with improved graphics.
The trailer gets into the skating action quick, showing off the original environments with new layouts and crisper details. The color and sharpness really stand out in this trailer, which bodes well for interested onlookers hoping to shred iconic locations like the Warehouse and Downhill Jam.
In addition to having an epic roster of playable skateboarding figures, this remastered version will offer online modes and an amazing park customizor. That last feature should give rise to all kinds of creative experiences.
The park editors in the original games were great, but the one in this remastered version should take things to new heights. Who knows what new resources and tools you’ll be able to use at your disposal to create surreal skateboard parks? It’s fascinating to think about what the community is capable of now, after all these years have past since these games were first introduced on the marketplace.
Things have changed a lot in skateboarding video games, but it seems like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will still have an arcade-like experience. That just means players get the chance to pull of surreal moves that they can’t in other skateboarding games.
Where a lot of others in this space right now are going for a more authentic experience, the developer of this remaster is doubling down on the joy of skating. That could pay off very well for them when this game releases here in a couple of weeks.
