Digital players will be able to upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe bundle for an additional $10, while those who already own the digital deluxe version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will be able to upgrade for free, unless you live in Japan.
This 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.
While those wishing to play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 on Switch will have to wait a bit longer, they were treated to a fun exchange on Twitter where Tony Hawk himself asked Crash Bandicoot if he’d help him get this game on Switch after he heard Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is being released on Nintendo’s latest platform on March 12, 2021. Luckily, Crash came through when Tony needed him most.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 was released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2020. In our review, we said “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is such a tremendous turnaround from 2015’s disastrously dismal Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 that it’s difficult to believe they share even a shred of DNA. The accessible yet tricky skating is earnest and old-school fun, the wonderful looking levels are lovingly designed odes to the past, and the music is like the hearty embrace of an old childhood buddy.”
