When the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games were remastered last year, it came at a perfect time: Hawk hadn’t released a new video game in years, and we were all stuck at home, struggling to find a way to entertain ourselves while feeling nostalgic as hell. The remaster was a great, temporary distraction from everything. Except, there was one small issue: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 was only available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. So those who have a PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch couldn’t join in on the nostalgia trip –that is, until now.
Tony Hawk himself hinted at the big news on Monday, tweeting, “Just heard #Crash4 is coming to new platforms and I’m kinda jealous. Hey @CrashBandicoot can you hook @TonyHawkTheGame up?” He then added, “If this works I owe @CrashBandicoot a customized skateboard… maybe on old-school shape for those big feet.” Nintendo quote-tweeted with the eyes emoji and on Tuesday, an official announcement was finally made by Activision.
The reissue is heading to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 26. It’s also going to be available on Nintendo Switch, but there’s no set date by Nintendo yet (though that’ll probably be around the same time).
