Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 Coming to Switch in 2021
« on: February 23, 2021, 06:30:28 AM »

Before they become Blizzard, Vicarious Visions is doing one last job on a Nintendo platform.

Tony Hawk is returning to Nintendo platforms for the first time in a decade as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2021.

Activision confirmed to us that Vicarious Visions, the developer of the original Xbox One/PlayStation 4 release in 2020, is returning to port the game to Switch as well as make the Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 upgrades that are due out on March 26. For those who don't know, Vicarious Visions, a longtime Nintendo-friendly developer owned by Activision, was recently restructured to become a part of Blizzard. They are also working on Diablo II: Resurrected, also due out later in 2021 on Switch.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 includes all of the levels from the original two Tony Hawk games that came to Nintendo platforms on Nintendo 64. In addition to the original levels, a wealth of other nostalgic elements are included, such as returning skaters and music. A new progression system, added challenges, a skatepark creator, and online play are also included. It is currently unknown what the specifics of the Switch version will be, but more information will come later in the year.

I hate it when these ports are announced for Switch with vague dates whereas other platforms get something more definite. In past times, that usually spelled doom for the ports sales numbers. But the Switch is selling so well that I don't think that has as detrimental an impact as it used to for ports to Nintendo systems.
