Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is releasing early next month, much to the hype of the skateboarding fans. Here’s more information to know about this remake version of the popular original PlayStation titles.

Like many high-budget titles, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will come in three unique editions. Each of which differentiated by the inclusions and, therefore, the price. The cheapest at $40 is the standard edition, followed by the deluxe edition at $50, and lastly, the collector’s edition at $100.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Variations and Prices

The standard edition comes with the base game and a pre-order bonus, if pre-ordered.

The Deluxe edition contains everything the standard edition has, plus the following freebies:

  • Create-a-skater mode retro content
  • Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk retro costumes
  • Powell-Peralta’s “The Ripper” skater

Meanwhile, at twice the price of the Deluxe edition comes the Collector’s edition which packs a lot more content than the previous. Particularly, it contains the following:

  • Limited edition Birdhouse deck
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 base game
  • Create-a-skater mode retro content
  • Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, and Tony Hawk retro costumes
  • Powell-Peralta’s “The Ripper” skater
  • Pre-order bonus (if pre-ordered)

As of writing, the Collector’s edition is currently sold out in major sellers. While uncertain, there is hope that the same product will see restocking soon.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in Hindsight

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is a successful franchise, stemming from the success of the first two titles back in the PS1 era. While the series had persisted across succeeding generations of console, part of such attempts is a waning popularity, leading to fewer new entries.

The last Tony Hawk’s title to grace the market was already five years old. The game is not necessarily a hit, to begin with. That is being a mess and way below most other Tony Hawk’s games ever released in the market.

But when everyone thinks that it’s only the Tony Hawk’s label that is suffering a slump, it seems that the entire genre, in general, is affected as well. With competitions that are able to go at par with the Pro Skater series being stuck in the early or late 2000s.

To see the first two titles in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series getting a remake is, therefore, an exciting surprise. Especially to those who invested much time in the first two entries, subsequently reaping much nostalgia in the process. This time, in clearer and better graphics than the original PlayStation version.
