The upcoming remaster of “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2” was able to capture the whole original roster for an absolutely “faithful” new look in the classic skateboarding games – but there are also some new additions.
Activision Blizzard announced the full roster of new skaters joining the lineup on Tuesday: Nijah Houston, Leo Baker, Leticia Buffoni, Ari Nishimura, Lizzie Armanto, Shane O’Neill, Riley Hawk and Tishavan Jones. They include Steve Caballero, Jeff Rowley, Baki Lasek, Alyssa Steamer, Karim Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Barnquist, Eric Coston, Rodney Mullen, Rune Glyfferg, Chad Muska and many more. And, of course, Tony Hawk
Michelle Bresao, VP of Product Management and Marketing at Activation, said in a statement, “Modern day skateboarding began with a type of skater who grew up playing the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Games,” said Michelle Bresso, VP of Product Management and Marketing at Activation. “We’ve taken the world-class pro skaters involved in this remaster from video game techniques and combos and made them possible in real life. We are proud that Remaster will present the Skate Culture Landscape today, a split roster of skiters that will appeal to any gamer. “
The release, in fact, brings some diversity to the remaster’s lineup and clearly introduces a much younger generation of professionals who will bring their own signature techniques to the gameplay. The original skaters, who will appear in the rest of their current ages, are now in their 40s and 50s. Among newcomers, ages 18 to 30.
The youngest skateboarder, Nishimura, an 18-year-old Japanese supporter, has joined the lineup. Diversity Although he has never played a “Tony Hawk” before, he heard about it, and hopes the rest of the man can inspire a new generation of skaters.
“To play a skate video game you don’t have to be able to skate or learn skateboarding, so I think that’s the beauty of it” “I want it to be their first contact – if there’s no connection to their skateboarding through this video game But I want to encourage them to like it, ‘Well, I played the game and it was fun. Now I wonder what it really feels like to get on a skateboard and try it out. “
I’m talking Diversity Earlier this month, Simon Ebager, COO of Vicarius Visions, the developer who received the remake, commented that it was “a high-quality original remaster” that should feel very familiar to real fans. After receiving the handling code from Neversoft’s first two games, the late studio that developed “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater”, Vicarius brought it to its own engine, re-arting all 19 original levels in 4K. For him, Nishimura said he “flew” when he finally saw himself playing.
“When I first saw the graphics of the game, I thought it was a photo,” I thought it was a picture of myself, but when I looked closely, I saw that it was a computer graphic for playing video games. So I was really surprised. ”
Activision also announced Monday that those who pre-order the rest will gain access to the August 14 warehouse demo before the game’s official launch on August 14. “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2” will be available for the PS4, a deluxe version featuring unique content and in-game gear at the proposed retail price of the unique 50, including the Xbox One and PC suggested 40.
