Anyone who grew up around the turn of the millennium will remember the ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’ series as being God tier level games that you would spend hours and hours listening to The Suicide Machines over and over again and trying to finally nail that ultimate line.

One day though I guess everyone bought next gen consoles and Skate and the Tony Hawk’s series got left in the dust, but there was always talk of a possible remake/reboot/remaster coming out and it looks like it’s finally coming out this September. What’s more is that you can download the legendary Warehouse level if you pre-order it now.
Here’s the official trailer – featuring highlights from both Tony Hawk’s 1 and 2:
