It had already become apparent in the last few days after Nintendo and some Activision accounts had an amusing exchange of blows on Twitter. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will be for Nintendo Switch appear.
They also take this opportunity to release the HD remaster for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. The specific date for this is March 26, 2021. The new switch version is due to appear this year.
The announcement that buyers of the previous PS4 and Xbox releases will have to buy the “next-gen upgrade” for 10 US dollars causes displeasure. Anyone who bought the Deluxe Edition at the time can at least upgrade at no additional cost.
Skateboarding is now a marginal sport, albeit an extreme one. But skateboards were really popular at the end of the 90s. It was the time of Tony Hawk and every self-respecting youngster who had a PlayStation knew Tony Hawk’s Pro Skating. Okay, the really cool ones could of course just skateboard themselves.
In any case, at the time, the chances that such licensed software weren’t very useful were usually pretty good. But Tony Hawk’s Pro Skating got top marks. This was also the case with the remaster for PS4, Xbox One and PCs, which has an average ranking of 89 on OpenCritic.
