Tony Hawk reveals Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

UPDATE: Download game out summer 2012.

UPDATE: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD launches summer 2012, Tony Hawk has said during the Spike VGA pre-show.

It's the "best of our first two games but for the new consoles," he said. "All the same gameplay people love and the joystick controls, big scoring combos and a lot of the classic stuff we had but some new stuff as well."


Gamers will enjoy the old school Pro Skater gameplay because of "the replayability" Hawk said. "People can come back to it and find new challenges to do, not just the ones we set up for them. But we're going back to the old two minute challenges, collect the letters, get the combos, get the scores. I'm out of my mind excited about it."

How much will it cost? "It'll be relatively cost effective. Less than $20," he said.

ORIGINAL STORY: Activision will release Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD during the first half of 2012, Tony Hawk has revealed.

The download game takes select levels from the first two Tony Hawk titles and gives them a HD makeover, Joystiq reports. Levels "School" and "Downhill" are included.


Hawk will appear at the Spike Video Game Awards tonight to fully unveil the game, which he teased this week on Twitter.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (Tony Hawk's Skateboarding in Europe) launched in 1999 for the PlayStation, and was later ported to the Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 launched a year later, again on PlayStation with later ports.
