PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions were also released earlier this year, although no free upgrade was available to players who had bought it on PS4 and Xbox One.
While the Switch port does not match the visuals of the other platforms and runs at 30FPS, this version means that fans will be able to play Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 on the go.

This version also contains all of the remaster’s original levels, pro skaters, gameplay, and the original soundtrack.
In NME’s five-star review, Jordan Oloman called Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 “a magnificent remaster with a laser focus on all the right areas,” and that “veteran fans will find comfort in its carefully crafted systems and ever-exciting gameplay”.
The last Tony Hawk game on a Nintendo platform was Tony Hawk: Shred on the Wii in 2010. The game required the use of motion controls and a skateboard controller but was both a critical and commercial failure.
Meanwhile, Tony Hawk made a surprise cameo in Avril Lavigne’s Tiktok debut as he skated to her 2003 hit ‘Sk8r Boi’.
In a separate interview, Microsoft’s Sarah Bond said that Windows 11 will be the “best Windows ever for gaming”, citing the OS’s “superior graphics, amazing speed and an incredible selection of games”.
