We first heard about Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD from none other than Tony Hawk, pro skater. Today, Activision revealed official media along with details of the digital update of the classic skating games.
Tony Hawk Ride developer Robomodo is on board as developer — but don’t worry, the controls will be handled by normal gamepads. It sounds like more updating is being done, other than just revamped graphics for old THPS 1 and 2 levels, as the game features a new cast of skateboarding pros, including “Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana), Riley Hawk, and, of course, Tony Hawk himself.” Hawk also said that “We’ve updated many elements to reflect today’s skateboarding scene as well.” Not having spent any weeknights in any bank parking lots lately, we aren’t sure what that refers to.
According to Activision’s unnecessarily coy press release, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will be available “only on leading consoles’ networks for about $15,” sometime this summer.
