Yes, the time has finally arrived. The widely successful Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is finally heading to some new gaming consoles.
On Sept. 4, Pro Skater fans were treated to the remastered Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. Shortly after its release, the game broke a major franchise record. As it turns out, the new game is the first to sell one million copies in its first ten days. This feat makes the reboot the fast-selling game in the Pro Skater franchise’s history and a triumph following the abysmal Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5.
So far, many fans have been unable to play the remastered game. When it was released in September, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 was only available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. However, it looks like all of that is about to change.
This week, Activision confirmed that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is heading to a slew of new consoles. On Mar. 26, the skating game will be available to play on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. As well, Pro Skater fanatics can play the remastered game on Nintendo Switch later this year.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 includes some fan-favorite features from the original games as well as a stacked soundtrack. Players also have access to a full roster of pro skaters. From the legendary skaters featured in the early Pro Skater games to new faces, there is now a diverse selection of individuals to play. The new lineup is in effort to make the game more inclusive and representative of the skating world today.
Since its release, players have been using the number of custom options available to their advantage. One blink-182 fan recreated Tom DeLonge‘s Boomer from the “First Date” video in the new Pro Skater game. Meanwhile, another player paid tribute to Nightmare On Elm Street with an impressive Freddy Krueger aka “Shreddy Krueger” creation.
Along with the revamped game, a Pro Skater documentary debuted back in August. Pretending I’m A Superman offers a look into how the franchise’s legacy got its start. The documentary is available to watch now on digital streaming services.
Naturally, Nintendo Switch users are very excited about the latest Pro Skater announcement.
