Tony Hawk Recruits Crash Bandicoot to Help Slide Over to Switch and Next-Gen Consoles

Skateboard fans get ready to do a kickflip all over again when the critically acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 makes its way to PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 26 and lands on Nintendo Switch™ for the first time in 2021.

The upcoming, next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will give players a variety of upgrades including:

  • 120 FPS at 1080P
  • Native 4K at 60 FPS
  • Spatial audio
  • High-fidelity atmospherics
  • Sharper dynamic shadows
  • Reflections
  • Lens Flares
  • Enhanced skater textures
  • and more…

Digital players can upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle with all the added features for an additional $10 SRP. The upgrade includes access to the secret skater Ripper (a.k.a. the infamous Powell-Peralta mascot), retro gear for Create-A-Skater mode, and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, and Rodney Mullen. Additionally, Activision Blizzard, Inc. is giving fans who already own the digital deluxe version of the game on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One a next-gen upgrade at no cost (except in Japan) on March 26.

Skateboard icon Tony Hawk requested the help of videogame icon Crash Bandicoot to bring the remaster to new platforms, following the announcement that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time would be coming to next-gen platforms and Nintendo Switch™ on March 12. Crash, whose Bandicoot-branded swag appeared in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 this past November, leveraged his clout in exchange for a personal skating lesson from the original birdman himself, resulting in playful Twitter banter between the two videogame icons.

Pre-orders for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 on PlayStation® 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch™ start today in select territories.
