Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 proved to be a great critical success when it launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC in August last year. A Switch version was later leaked, with Activision following up with the confirmation of a port. Now, it has officially been announced that Switch players can look forward to some skating action this June.
Making the announcement, Nintendo said “Grab your board and #NintendoSwitch, and get ready to drop in to @TonyHawktheGame 1+2 on June 25th! Skate through all the classic levels with some of your favorite pro skaters and a whole lot more.”
On PS4 and Xbox One, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 ran at 60fps. The next-gen versions, which came out last march, brought with them even more performance enhancements, including a 120fps mode. Currently, no details have been provided regarding the resolution and framerate on the Switch, though judging by many Switch conversions of PS4/Xbox One games, (and as has been suggested by pre-release footage) it will most likely be reduced to 30fps, alongside other compromises.
That being said, some Switch ports have managed to run at 60fps, so we will have to wait and see. With the timer-based gameplay of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, it coming to Switch feels like a natural match for its portable nature. Hopefully the port is solid. We will have to wait and see when the game launches on the 25th of June.
