Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD Prepped For Digital Release
Well, when things have gone wrong, return to that which went really, really well.
The ill-fated Tony Hawk: Ride kinda sidelined the legendary skateboarding star in the world of video games, but you can't keep a good guy down.
Just before the Spike TV Video Game Awards kicked off, Tony Hawk told Joystiq that Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD is on the way. It'll include "select levels" from the first two Pro Skater titles, make 'em all pretty with glossy high-definition, and deliver them in a digital package next summer. How much? Well, "under $20," as far as we know.
Classic levels like "School" and "Downhill" will be reimagined, and the fans will likely applaud that move. If you don't remember, the first Tony Hawk games were legitimate gems; in fact, the series was a big-time phenomenon. Hawk was in his prime, the X Games were huge, and the PlayStation was a great platform for the skating action. So, who wants to relive the good ol' days in HD? We've been doing that a lot this generation.
