A few months ago, Activision announced Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. The release is now coming up in just a couple of weeks. Although there hasn’t been any news regarding a Switch version, some evidence suggests that it could be happening in the future.

Activision brought out a demo for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 a few days ago, and interestingly enough, there’s some news for Switch fans. Images have supposedly been found in the files of the Switch unit itself, in addition to the Joy-Con Grip and Pro Controller.

Here’s a look:

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled are both out on Switch, and by all accounts, they did pretty well. It was therefore a bit of a disappointment to see that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time – the latest entry in the series – was not announced for the console as part of the initial reveal. There hasn’t been anything confirming a Switch release, but eagle-eyed fans have spotted something that gives a little bit of hope to cling on to.

Over on the official website for Crash Bandicoot 4, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are the only listed systems. However, in the site’s source code, the platforms category also includes Switch. It’s unclear if this was merely a mistake or is a sign of future plans.

One possibility is that we could see Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on Switch down the road. Activision has brought releases to Switch well after their initial launches as we saw with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy. The company has also said it is “still evaluating additional platforms for a future date”.

Have you ever heard of Minority Report: Everybody Runs? If you said no, we wouldn’t blame you.

Activision originally published the movie-based Minority Report: Everybody Runs for the Game Boy Advance way back in 2002. It was made by Torus Games. Alex Hutchinson, who directed the likes of Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, started his career working on that old GBA title.

Minority Report: Everybody Runs might be noteworthy if only for only one reason. During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, Hutchinson revealed that movie director Steven Spielberg’s assistant reached out to the team during development. Spielberg apparently wanted the guns removed as they wouldn’t fit in with the GBA’s audience – which he felt was more kid-friendly. In its place, Torus Games was given a suggestion to replace the guns with the Sick Stick – a weapon already in the game – that makes you vomit.

Earlier today, the new Winter Festival Grand Prix kicked off in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. View some footage from the event below.
