I remember playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 on PlayStation 2 especially at the weekends after completing my homework. This game is one of my favourites. I grew up liking sports, especially Football and I was a huge Manchester United. Before Tony Hawk came along, I never knew Pro Skating was a thing. Tony managed to make skating cool for me, and I remember the episode of MTV Cribs he was on. He used his swimming pool as a mini skate park and seemed to always be someone who was having fun.
I never knew the first two games had been remastered and released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 last year. I’ve been an Xbox gamer since my first experience of Halo on the Xbox 360 over 10 years ago and as I don’t have a next-gen console yet, I may treat myself to the games this weekend.
Activision announced they have remastered Pro Skater 1 + 2 for the next-gen consoles Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation and it’s to be released on 26th March 2021. They will also be releasing it on Nintendo Switch, but there’s no release date as of yet.
