Tony Hawk Pro Skater transformed the skateboarding world back in 1999 and spawned 16 further games in the series. This year will see the release of remastered versions of Pro Skater 1 and 2, the two games from the PlayStation era. Both games are being combined into a single purchase and will drop on September 4th, 2020.
They are being remastered by Vicarious Visions, responsible for the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, but also holding many of the team responsible for the Tony Hawk games, including the original Pro Skater 2.
