Today marked Summer Game Fest’s first surprise reveal and spotlight, and it’s for a couple N64 staples. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 remasters and pairs the first two games in the series, keeping their locations and songs from their soundtracks intact while aiming to maintain the original feel and add new features, like online play.

 

 

Unfortunately, the game isn’t slated for the Nintendo Switch. This is a missed opportunity, as the Switch is the only system on the market actually shaped like a skateboard.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater released back in 1999 for the PlayStation 1 and was ported to the Nintendo 64 in North America in 2000; it later arrived for the N64 in Europe in 2001.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 followed a similar path, launching on the PlayStation 1 in 2000 and coming to the Nintendo 64 a year later, in 2001.

Hopefully there’s a chance Vicarious Visions can give everything they can and bring these to Nintendo fans eventually, but for now it’s set for a September 4th release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
