Now here’s some nostalgia worth getting excited over.
Video game publisher Activision announced on Tuesday that classic skateboard video titles Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are being remastered for a September 4th release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Vicarious Visions, who handled 2017’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster, are helming the project.
The games will feature most of the original soundtrack, which includes artists such as Bad Religion, Dead Kennedys, Goldfinger, Primus, and Rage Against The Machine. Check out the announce trailer below.
“Create-A-Park has really evolved from what it was,” Vicarious Visions studio head Jen Oneal told Polygon in an interview. “You are going to have access to a full suite of a skate park pieces: your ramps, your rails, your halfpipe, etcetera. But what makes it so different now and now you actually get to deform the pieces, and you can make any kind of crazy amusement park-like skate park that you want because you’re able to manipulate the rails to make crazy spirals if you want.”
Skaters available to use in the games include Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Andrew Reynolds, Elissa Steamer, Chad Muska, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Rune Glifberg, Kareem Campbell, Jamie Thomas, and Bob Burnquist.
