Series veterans can choose between the original and new control schemes, but the controls are intuitive in either setup and the inputs for every trick can be customized too.

Additions to the core move set like the manual from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, the revert from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, and even the wall plant from Tony Hawk’s Underground all demonstrate Vicarious Visions’ impressive commitment to modernizing the mechanics for both new and returning players.

New Features

The remaster does come with some cool new features. Although, the games don't forget their roots and left all the same original levels, skaters, tricks, and soundtrack.

But, the game added plenty of new tricks, new secrets to discover on each level, and several gameplay and online multiplayer options are now available.

The game brought back classic skaters like Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Burnquist, and Chad Muska, but also left room for some of today's stars.

The new skaters include Nyjah Huston, Leo Baker, Leticia Bufoni, Aori Nishimura, Lizzie Armanto, Shane O’Neill, Riley Hawk, and Tyshawn Jones.

Price on Nintendo Switch

When bought, players can access both Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2. The titles cost pretty much the same on all platforms.

On Nintendo Switch, the game is listed fairly at $39.99. Being that it's a remaster and not a fully new game, this price makes sense.
