Tony Hawk's New Game Is Tony Hawk HD

Having teased such an announcement earlier in the week, at tonight's Spike VGAs skae legend Tony Hawk made it official: after a short hiatus in 2011, his series will be back in 2012 with Tony Hawk HD.

And it sounds pretty great. Rather than risk screwing everything up with a new game like the last 117 entries in the series managed, it's going back to the franchise's roots and will be taking select levels from Tony Hawk's 1 & 2, recreating them in "HD" and releasing it digitally in the first half of 2012.

Hawk told Joystiq that classic levels School and Downhill be in the game. If the original soundtracks make it as well, that would be awesome.

    I never even played the first one :p

    THPS2 was awesome, 3 was good, and 4 was freaking insane. Everything after that just went downhill though. On foot sections? Stealth missions? Car racing? COME ON!

    I *might* get this, but the price needs to be pretty low to win me over, as it probably will only have as much content as 1 TH game, not 2.

    OH.... FUCK..... YES!!!!!!!

    :D

    I tweeted Neversoft about 5-10times about a HD remake for THPS1-3. This is enough!

    Not that it was my tweeting that helped...

    Since they discontinued the Skate series Tony Hawk needs to come back better than ever, they need controls like Skate with the right stick and a big open world city with fun challenges that involve doing tricks and not collecting letters.

      You kidding? This is Activision we're talking about. They'll probably tie this in with the Ride plastic skateboard peripheral or at the very least, release a new one to hit you up for much cash.

      I could never get into skate hoping they keep it feeling like the original

    This is a step in the right direction. The series became convoluted in its own crapulance. Simplifying it again and bringing back classic levels from 1- 3? Damn RIGHT yes.

    About time someone put a franchise to good use! preorder.. here take my money already.. and please..pleeeeeaaaaase don't f it up!

    So its an HD remake?
