Tony Hawk New Pro Skater Remastered Features

This remastered title combines the first two Pro Skater games in one convenient package. It will feature all the original maps, characters, most of the songs, tricks and functions with vastly upgraded visuals. There will also be even more exciting bonus mechanics such as online play and a greatly improved course builder.

The project is being handled by developer Vicarious Visions who have a long history of both remasters and skating games, alike.

According to Vicarious Visions COO Simon Ebejer, the remaster will contain a meta that allows players to switch between iterations without feeling like they're "losing progress" while also unlocking greater rewards outside the games.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Remaster will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games store. The official release date is Sept. 4.

The Pro Skater franchise originally started when the first title was released in 1999—making these games just over 20 years old.
