Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is Getting a Nintendo Switch Release

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 PS5 2

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is arriving on Switch, letting you take the skateboard sim anywhere.

Granted, it’s not the first skating game for the Nintendo Switch but it’s the most iconic, a re-release of the first two titles in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. We remember playing the Gameboy Advance version of THPS so we’re excited to see this get a portable release.

Of course, you can always play it in docked mode, but there’s a definite pick-up-and-play feel to the games, just the thing for a train or bus journey. We’re sure someone will also attempt to play THPS 1  + 2 while skateboarding and slap it on YouTube, no matter how bad an idea that might be.

We certainly got a kick out of this remaster; reviewing it, we said “It has all the elements that made the original games great, but then adds to them.” We went on to award it an “outstanding” 9 out of 10, high praise indeed. However, its release is also a little bittersweet; Vicarious Visions, the team responsible for the game ended up being turned into a support studio by owners Activison Blizzard.

The game has already received a PC, Xbox and Playstation release so it was only a metter of time before it hit the Switch. So, if you’re hungry for some skating on the go, you can  dive into Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 when it arrives on the Nintendo Switch this June 25th.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
