Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Remaster Features Aged Skaters

Do you ever wish you could play as an aged version of pro-skater Tony Hawk in a video game? Well, thanks to the work of Vicarious Visions and Activision, you can do in the upcoming THPS Remasters

The recently announced Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 remasters has taken the internet by storm.

Many a tail-end Gen-X or Millennial will no doubt have some memory of playing one of these games in their youths.

(Even ABG‘s resident dinosaur Darren Colley has played them!)

And, with Vicarious Visions – the same team behind the Crash N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fuelled remasters – at the helm, it’s safe to say the game is in good hands.

Some news we’ve managed to source though, adds a touch of (sur)realism to the proceedings. Whilst the game is obviously tied to the late ’90s, the skaters that featured have, naturally, aged considerably.

Tony Hawk himself recently turned 52. And many of his contemporaries are all in their 40s or even 50s! It’s time to feel old in ourselves, fellow Millennials.

To keep a sense of authenticity, Activision has recently done recaptures of the classic skateboarders. Only, as they currently look.

Yes, that does mean you’ll be able to grind with Hawk despite his age. I don’t know whether this is a good thing or a great thing yet.

You can see some of the skaters ‘new’ avatars in the attached video.

Much like with the aforementioned Crash remasters, THPS 1+2 is a complete reworking. The team at Vicarious Visions has done an amazing job at bringing the original games into the current day.
