Saturday at the 2011 Video Game Awards, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD
is set to include select levels from the first two Pro Skater
More details have come forth since Saturday's unveiling. We've learned that developer Robomodo will be in the driver's seat once again. If you remember, Robomodo developed the poorly received Tony Hawk: SHRED
. But fear not, as no goofy peripherals are involved in the HD remake.
While it is set to include "the best" of the first two games, there will be plenty about THPS HD that will be new. Activsion promises that it will feature "sharp visuals with the best controls ever in a Tony Hawk game." Also, there will be new skaters poised to join Hawk in favorite levels such as the original Warehouse. Some of which include:
Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana)
The Birdman himself has some insight on the vision of the remake, which also resonates the notion that Activision and Robomodo are combining the best of old and new:
“We’re going back to the core of what made the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games so popular, while leveraging today’s console power and online capabilities,” said Tony Hawk. “We've updated many elements to reflect today’s skateboarding scene as well. Long-time fans of the series will appreciate the huge amount of polished content at a very low price."
Ah yes, the price. How much will this old-but-new remake run you back? Well, we've been given the vague price point of "about $15". Our guess is that this is just referring to the very
subtle price differences between XBLA and PSN, and we can expect it to be 1200 MSP.Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD
will S-K-A-T-E its way onto the marketplace this summer.
