SANTA MONICA, California – (BUSINESS MANAGEMENT) – Skateboard fans are getting ready to do a kickflip again when they criticize Tony Hawk’s™ Pro Skater™ 1 and 2 takes the road to PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X | S March 26 and lands on the Nintendo Switch ™ for the first time in 2021. The next next generation versions of Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 and 2 will give players a number of upgrades, such as super sharp 120 FPS at 1
As the fastest Tony Hawks Pro Skater games to sell 1 million units2, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 and 2 is a faithful remaster of the first two iconic games in the series, mixing all the original levels, skaters, ancient tricks and more that players remember from the 90s and 2000s with new, beautifully recreated levels.
High-fidelity atmosphere will be added to the next generation upgrade for Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 and 2. This unique graphical feature allows players to experience the experience of sharper dynamic shadows, reflections and lens flares, as well as enhanced skater textures and more on next-generation consoles.
Digital players can upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle with all the additional features for an additional $ 10 SRP. The upgrade includes access to the secret skater Ripper (also known as the infamous Powell-Peralta mascot), retro equipment for Create-A-Skater mode and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen. In addition, Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) is giving fans who already own the digital deluxe version of the game on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One a next-generation free upgrade (except in Japan) on March 26th. See www.tonyhawkthegame.com/upgrade for upgrade details.
Getting to this milestone was no skating in the park. Skateboard icon Tony Hawk asked for help from video game icon Crash Bandicoot to bring the remaster to new platforms, following the announcement that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time would come to the next generation platforms and Nintendo Switch ™ March 12. Crash, if Bandicoot-branded swag appeared in Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 and 2 during november, he used his influence in exchange for a personal skating lesson from the original birdman himself, which resulted in the playful twin shame between the two video game icons.
