Tony Hawk has taken to Crash Bandicoot on Twitter in hopes of securing a new Pro Skater port for the Nintendo Switch and possibly other consoles.
Tony Hawk has reached out to his good friend Crash Bandicoot hoping to bring your game to new platforms. The prolific skater released a couple of remakes of Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 & 2 with Activision. It was a strong return to the skating franchise for the duo, but the future remains unclear for the Tony Hawk skating series.
Tony Hawk was a massive part of the OG Xbox / PS2 generation and had a strong presence in the early days of the Xbox 360 / PS3 era, but over time, he faded away. Activision began to focus on Obligations as your money maker as any effort to innovate in the Tony Hawk The franchise was met with less than stellar reception. Games like Rollerblading entered and helped hasten the death of the Tony Hawk series, but after EA stopped doing that series (at least, until recently), the skating genre died out. It was sad to see it go, but the genre has returned with indie games and new entries in major franchises, such as the Professional skater remakes.
Tony Hawk is now calling Crash Bandicoot via Twitter to help build buzz for what appear to be new ports of Tony Hawk’s Professional Skater 1 & 2. The official Crash Bandicoot The Twitter account claimed that it would make some efforts to help and Nintendo even stepped in to try to make it all happen. Obviously, whatever is happening is already set in stone and will probably be announced very, very soon.
The game is currently available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, but these potential new ports would likely include a Nintendo Switch version. The game is currently playable in backward-compatible mode on Xbox Series X and PS5, but a native version may also arrive. This could include things like improved frame rate, resolution, and much more. It seems unlikely this is a new remake or remastering given how recent Pro Skater 1 and 2 they are, but it remains to be seen.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time It was recently confirmed to be coming to Xbox Series X, PS5, and Nintendo Switch in March, so Activision may be preparing the Tony Hawk remakes that will come at the same time or shortly after. It seems notable that the game didn’t make its way into the recent Nintendo Direct, but it was packed with a variety of new announcements, so perhaps Nintendo just couldn’t include it.
