Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 coming to Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is coming to three new platforms this year. A next-gen version of the game will land on Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 in March, while a Switch version is coming later this year.

The game is a remake of the first two games in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. When it originally launched on last-gen consoles last September, Activision didn’t reveal any plans to bring the game to new consoles or give it a next-gen upgrade, making today’s announcement a welcome surprise.

While the game will launch on Nintendo Switch in 2021, it doesn’t have a firm release date. The news comes just one day after Nintendo and Tony Hawk himself teased the port on Twitter with a humorous exchange.

Plans for the next-gen version of the game are more immediate. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will hit both Xbox Series X/S and PS5 on March 26. The game will feature updates like support for 4K, 120 frames per second, spatial audio, and cross-gen progression. The PS5 version of the game will receive haptic feedback via the DualSense controller.

The upgrade isn’t free for all players, however. Those who own the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game will be able to upgrade free of charge, but those who bought the standard version will need to pay extra. Those who already own the game can pay $10 to upgrade to the new version and get access to the game on PS5 or Xbox Series X/S. Meanwhile, those who purchased the game physically on PS4 won’t be able to upgrade to the PS5 digital edition. A Digital Cross-Gen Bundle will be available for $50 on both next-gen consoles.

3 realistic improvements we want to see with PS5 Pro games
A red and blue PS5 stands on a table with matching controllers.

As we reach the middle of this current console generation, people are wondering when improved “Pro” versions of consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will arrive. PS5 fans had their curiosity rewarded this week when Moore’s Law is Dead and Insider Gaming leaked the specs of what has become colloquially known as the PS5 Pro and is reportedly referred to as “Trinity” internally at Sony.

The leaked documents indicate that the PS5 Pro will have a similar CPU to the base model that can be modified to run at a slightly higher clock speed, as well as 67 teraflops of 16 bit floating-point calculations, a GPU with 60 AMD compute units and faster memory bandwidth, and more. These are improvements over the launch PS5 model, but it isn’t a console generation-like leap in terms of hardware power.

While the PS5 does indeed have Bluetooth built-in, there is little native support for headphones or other audio products; Bluetooth on the PS5 has been included primarily for connecting wireless keyboards and mice, as well as approved Sony products. Don’t fret, though: there is a way to connect your headset to your game console, and it’s relatively easy—assuming you're willing to buy a Bluetooth transmitter.

Once you have the Bluetooth transmitter, you're a few easy steps away from connecting Bluetooth headphones to your PS5 . Read on as we describe the pairing process in detail.
