The brands are talking again

[Update: Activision has confirmed Tony Hawk 1 + 2 for the Switch and current-gen consoles this morning. It will release on March 26 and will sport 120FPS with 1080p visuals, or 80FPS at 4K on current-gen consoles. Listed Switch features include playing “on the go.” There will be a cross-generation deluxe bundle that provides extra skins. The base game can be upgraded for free. You can find more info on upgrades here.]

I sure hope these very intentional Nintendo tweets about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 pan out.

This afternoon’s exchange between Tony Hawk (the man) and Crash Bandicoot, Activision, and Nintendo (the brands) is exactly the sort of Twitter synergy that precedes not-that-surprising video game ports.

It’s also possible – and feels equally likely – for THPS 1 + 2 to release on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, similar to Crash Bandicoot 4‘s upcoming port rollout. I’d appreciate faster load times, for sure. These are great games masterfully modernized by Vicarious Visions. Don’t hesitate to bring ’em everywhere.

At a bare minimum, it would be great to see this pop up on Steam later this year. It’s still Epic-only.
