Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is set to return in high-definition, in the imaginatively titled Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, which ostensibly features all of the best bits from Pro Skater 1 and 2.

Take a look at the trailer for a first look:

It only took them 4 or so failed attempts at making a good TH game again to realize this is what we've wanted all along.

Brilliant, it's going to be tough getting into the swing of these games though, after all of the years that Skate has dominated, but it looks safe to say that the Tony Hawk games are back, and hopefully, better than ever!

I thought Skate put TH out of business? But a button similar to H:CE A to go from old to HD would be cool.

This could rule all if they do it right. They need to release HD remakes of 1, 2, and 3. 4 was not my favorite, and never really liked the UG series, but the first 3 were awesome.

Okay...they redeemed themselves. I'm buying this shit up lickety split once it comes out. Loved the first two games. I worked at a videostore and we'd bust out the rental consoles and play THPS2 all night.

If they do, man I will feel like I got injected with nostalgia when I get this.

When there was the previous posting about Tony Hawk being at the VGAs, this is what I dreamed would happen. Lets just hope it is done well, because I cannot wait.

Not a big fan of THPS2 but the original was great. Hopefully this is XBLA. Wonder if the end of the trailer was hinting that the ability to get off your board was being added in to them?

@23 I hope not. The reason I'm excited for this is because I want the authentic old school Tony Hawk experience. If they add all the stuff like getting off your board it won't be nearly as nostalgic.

I had a feeling after the board peripheral bombed they would go "back to their roots". Very stoked for this!

@7 - Nah, the shitty board peripheral killed Tony Hawk's. Skate certainly contributed though, although EA went and tried to milk Skate before killing it.

I'd rather see a new game though, rather than yet another damn remake.

Excerpt from an Activision developers meeting:

-"How are we going to get more money from the kids?"
-"We could do something new."
-"No, we ran out of ideas several years ago."
-"Then lets remake games from ten years ago, when we were still successful and respected."
-"[devilish laughter] Yeah, and everyone of them is going to love it and buy it. Twice. Hail Satan!"

Personally, I think this remake is crap nobody really needs. I still own my PSone and my PS2 as well as THPS 1,2,4 and UG. That´s all the nostalgia I need. Considering the almost insane amount of hype created by these news, I guess Activision will be okay with not getting my money.
