Pro Skater Series Goes Back to Its Roots in Downloadable Form
The new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater title in development by Robomodo has re-do written all over it. After what will be a two-year hiatus, the series will return next year with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, a downloadable game that will feature hi-def remakes of select tracks from the first and second THPS. Oh, and Activision is saying “sayonara” to the skateboard peripheral.
Can you blame ’em? The last two games in the series, Tony Hawk Ride and Tony Hawk Shred didn’t exactly do the greatest with critics or consumers. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will also feature new faces in the realm of skateboarding, including Hawk’s kid, Riley. Check out the trailer after the jump.
One of my favorite things to do in Pro Skaters 3 and 4 was creating my own stages. If Activision gave us more tools and the ability to share them online with the old-school THPS gameplay we know and love, well, that would make Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD an instant classic in my book.
