With the recent announcement that Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 being remastered and released in September, a few old friends found themselves reunited at the Berrics for a catch up. The epic gathering saw the OG Cast including skaters such as Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Kareem Campbell, Chad Muska and Steve Caballero enjoy a cruise about the Berrics and share a few laughs. The crew were also joined by actor Jack Black who was one of the secret characters in THPS2.
'Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2' as it will be called will feature the entire original cast of legendary skateboarders as well as levels from the initial games and will be available on the PS4, Xbox and PC. There will be numerous updated visuals, levels, tricks, and challenges with a new online multiplayer mode however game controls and structures will remain mostly the same. Most but not all of the original soundtrack will be on there with some not making it due to licensing issues. The more recent Tony Hawk Pro Skater games unfortunately began to lose their appeal to many skaters however the early games in the eyes of many are still timeless.
With the original game now over 20 years old, a lot of skateboarders will be glad to see some of their childhood heroes with this blast from the past and look forward to the release in September.
Welcome back THPS!
