Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Characters CONFIRMED: Skaters, Potential stars & more
Some of the original crew will be returning, but could we see some surprise inclusions?
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is returning and will hit us with a slice of nostalgia!
A remastered version of THPS 1+2 combined is coming, but you won’t need to wait long to play it – a demo is dropping that’ll whisk you back to the warehouse you know and love. It lands on August 14!
Here’s everything we know about the characters you can use.
Confirmed characters & skaters for THPS 1+2 remastered
- Tony Hawk
- Leticia Bufoni
- Riley Hawk
- Tyshawn Jones
- Shane O’Neill
- Lizzie Armanto
- Nyjah Huston
- Leo Baker
- Aori Nishimura
The man himself gave us a hint at who could be included back in May.
So who counts as “original skaters”, aside from the Birdman himself of course.
THPS 1 characters
- Tony Hawk
- Bob Burnquist
- Kareem Campbell
- Rune Glifberg
- Bucky Lasek
- Chad Muska
- Andrew Reynolds
- Geoff Rowley
- Elissa Steamer
- Jamie Thomas
- Officer Dick (unlockable)
- Private Carrera (unlockable with cheats)
THPS 2 new characters
- Eric Koston
- Steve Caballero
- Rodney Mullen
- Spider-Man (unlockable)
- Trixie (unlockable) (Replaces ‘Private Carrera’; available on the Xbox and Dreamcast versions)
- Mindy (unlockable) (Replaces ‘Private Carrera’ and ‘Officer Dick’ only on the GBA version)
That’s a lot of characters!!
It remains to be seen if they will all be returning to the game, but the favorites like Bob Burnquist should be present.
The unlockable characters will be an interesting choice, plenty will remember them, but if their story elements are not also transferred then their avatars might be a bit redundant.
Other classic characters?
There are plenty of other classic skaters from the THPS series that players remember.
From Jango Fett to Darth Maul, Bam Margera, and even Doom Guy. If the plan is to remaster THPS 3 & 4 at some point then these characters could be held in reserve, but there will be a vocal section of the fan base crying out for some of these skaters to return.
THPS 1+2 would be a great place to introduce the current generation of skate stars to the world, so hopefully they will get included.
There is also a tradition of pop culture crossover in THPS games, so seeing Jon Snow, Thanos, or Baby Yoda in the game would be amazing.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered will arrive on 4 September 2020.
Pre-orders are open now across PS4, Xbox, and PC (via Epic Games).
