The news was confirmed by the official Twitter page, which confirmed the game is “Coming to PS5™, Xbox Series X|S – March 26 and on Nintendo Switch™ – Coming 2021. AVAILABLE NOW on PS4™, Xbox One, and PC.“
Eagle-eyed gamers won’t be surprised, as a previous Twitter tease hinted at such an announcement.
The tease came courtesy of a Twitter exchange between legendary skater Tony Hawk, the Crash Bandicoot Twitter page, and Nintendo of America.
The cheeky conversation was the result of the recent announcement that Activision’s Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on March 12th.
Tony Hawk tweeted the Crash Bandicoot Twitter page saying: “Just heard #Crash 4 is coming to new platforms and I’m jealous. Hey, @CrashBandicoot can you hook @TonyHawkTheGame up?”
In a follow-up tweet, Tony Hawk even attempted to bribe Crash Bandicoot with a customised skateboard that would be suitable for his big feet!
In response to the tweets, Nintendo and Activision’s official Twitter pages replied, indicating that something may be in motion.
“Who! Who’s dis? JK let me see what I can do. @Activision, any help?” teased the Crash page.
The Crash Bandicoot tweet then got a response from Nintendo of America saying: “C’mon Crash make it happen for @TonyHawkTheGame!”
Then Activision, who is the publisher of both the Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series, simply replied with the shifty eyes emoji.
Thankfully, the news is now confirmed!
Personally, I not only love the idea of potentially playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 on PS5 but also on the Nintendo Switch.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 comes to Xbox Series X|S, PS5 and Nintendo Switch on March 26th.
