The Nintendo Switch version of the critically-acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 finally has a release date. The Nintendo of America Twitter account announced that the game will hit stores on June 25, 2021. The game remakes the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games. Many critics consider the two as the best games throughout the series. Those two games originally launched two decades ago on a number of platforms. But Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has always been part of many gamers’ PlayStation One collections.
Pro Skater 1 + 2 originally launched on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 4, 2020. It received a next-gen upgrade for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on March 26, 2021. Now, Vicarious Visions set their eyes on the Nintendo platform. This will be the first game to be released on any Nintendo console since Tony Hawk: Shred for the Nintendo Wii. While Shred received universally negative reviews, Pro Skater 1 + 2 made critics rave about it.
Vicarious Visions did a really great job in remaking the two games, especially since they weren’t part of the original development team. Many critics consider this game to be the return to form of the Tony Hawk franchise. While we all know how great the game actually is, the only question now is if it will be able to run smoothly on the Switch. This game would have been the last game in the series if it flopped. Now, at least Activision may consider giving the series another go.
Vicarious Visions’ success in Pro Skater 1 + 2 may have led to their selection as the developers for Diablo II. The Diablo II: Resurrected remake originally had an internal team of developers from Blizzard working on it, until Vicarious Visions took over.
