In case you somehow missed it, an entirely new remaster of the first two Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video games called Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 was officially announced with an impressive-looking trailer and a whole bunch of details. Even better? It's set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year on September 4th. And while it might not be the first time that the games have received the HD treatment, the 2020 version looks to be the most stunning one yet.
"The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series is a big factor in the evolution of modern skateboarding tricks and inspiring many of the pro skaters you know and love today," Tony Hawk said as part of the announcement. "I'm excited to help inspire a new generation of skateboarders and gamers - and existing fans - to grow the sport even further."
