Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 was previously rumored for Switch, and Activision finally confirmed the news last month. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but we can at least rest easy knowing that the port is on the way.

Vicarious Visions developed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 originally and the release was very well-received. However, the studio became a part of Blizzard in January. Some fans have been wondering who is responsible for the Switch port as a result. Fortunately, we’re hearing that despite Vicarious Visions having been merged into Blizzard, they’re still handling the new versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 – so the Switch version should still be in very good hands.

Following yesterday’s tease, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 has been officially announced for Switch. It’s releasing on Nintendo’s console later in 2021.

Here’s the full announcement regarding new platforms:

An announcement regarding a Switch version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 could be coming soon. The man himself – Tony Hawk – put out a tweet asking the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter account for help in bringing the release to additional platforms, much like the recent news of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. Nintendo also put out a couple of messages on social media.

Here’s the full roundup of tweets:

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 has launched across all platforms, including Switch. To get a better idea as to how each version compares, Digital Foundry has conducted its usual in-depth analysis.

When docked, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy runs at 720p. The resolution drops to 480p when playing in handheld mode.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy reached new formats last week. Interestingly, it’s the fastest selling Switch game released this year. The £30 price tag may play a factor in that.

The Xbox One and Switch versions of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy came in at first and second on the UK charts this week. However, the Switch edition only sold 250 fewer copies.

We have a couple of other tidbits regarding the latest UK sales as well. Mario Tennis Aces’ sales dipped by 53%, though GamesIndustry says that’s “decent performance for a game in its second week on shelves.” Harvest Moon: A Light of Hope, which debuted in the UK just a few days ago, had 78% of its sales on Switch in comparison to 22% on the PlayStation 4.

VG Tech has put together a video comparing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s frame rate across all platforms, including Switch. We have it below.

We’ll likely have a better idea as to how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy holds up on Switch in the near future, but VG Tech states that it runs at 720p when docked and roughly 853×480 in portable mode. When playing in handheld form, the game apparently runs a bit better, though can still occasionally drop below 30 frames per second.
