Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will come to the last of its confirmed release platforms next month now that the game has a release date for the Nintendo Switch version. Activision announced this week that the Pro Skater combo game will release on the Nintendo Switch on June 25th. The game doesn’t yet have an updated Nintendo eShop page for people to pre-order it, but you can still pre-order the physical versions through retailers like Amazon.
The remakes of the two acclaimed Tony Hawk games first came to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms last year, though people who paid attention to the leaks surrounding the game were expecting the Nintendo Switch port since even before the game’s release. It was officially confirmed for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch platforms in February with the Switch release not far away now.

As the name of the game suggests, the release actually includes two different Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games – the first and second one – in one bundle. While the skaters from the original games are included once again in this pair of games, developer Vicarious Visions incorporated modern skating figures into the game as well. The games were also well known for their soundtracks, so naturally, most of the songs included in the originals have been brought back for the remakes.
Our review of the game praised the addition of skaters new and old and said the arcade-style gameplay was a fresh, familiar take on the skating genre.
