So, that weird Twitter exchange between Tony Hawk and Crash Bandicoot wasn't for nothing after all. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, last year's excellent PlayStation 4 remake, is indeed heading to new platforms, and that includes PS5.
The upgraded version of the game will run at a native 4K at 60 frames-per-second or, if you have a capable display, 1080p at 120 frames-per-second. It also supports "spatial audio", which presumably means PS5's Tempest 3D audio solution. There's no word on DualSense feature support.
Is it a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5? Yes and no. If you own the Digital Deluxe Edition of THPS 1+2, you will gain access to the new version for free. If you own the regular version, the upgrade will cost you $10. For that price, you'll not only get the upgrade, but you'll also get the Digital Deluxe goodies too — that means a new playable character — Powell Peralta's Ripper — as well as a bunch of retro-themed cosmetics for your custom skater. The game will launch on PS5 on 26th March, so there's just a few weeks to wait.
