The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater soundtrack has just received a massive buff. As we covered off on back in may the original Tony Hawk’s 1 and 2 games are receiving a much-anticipated remastering, due out September 4th.
Activision recently dropped the new and improved soundtrack with a jaw-dropping 37 new songs hand-picked to resonate with the new generation. The Birdman himself, Tony Hawk even had a hand in the selection process including a few of his favourite songs for good measure.
If you’ve played the original THPS games you know that the music was and is such a crucial element which helped bring the slacker/punk/emo culture to life in the games.
