Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2’s Crash Bandicoot 4 Crossover Announced

Activision has announced that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 will be getting a crossover with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time with Crash-themed in-game items, including nine shirts, three hats, and one skateboard deck.

This first-ever crossover between Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk will begin tomorrow, November 6, and arrives as part of a free title update. Fans can take a look at a short clip below that hints at some of the items that will soon be available.

This Crash content is part of a bigger update that will also bring The Birdman Pack that is benefitting The Skatepark Project. This pack includes classic and additional boards from Birdhouse and Powell-Peralta and a new TSP deck created specifically for charity. This limited time Create-A-Skater 10-deck bundle will be available for $4.99 USD and 100% of Activision’s net proceeds will “help support the construction of public skateparks for youth in undeserved communities.”

Furthermore, players will be able to replay Tours mode with individual skaters, allowing them to max out stats of their favorite characters. At the start of each Solo Tour, all Goals and Medals will be reset, and the current Tours mode will move to “Crew Tours” so previous progress will not be lost.

There will also be new objectives within online Multiplayer, Create-A-Park and Combo Practice, better randomization for Multiplayer playlists in both Jams and Competitive modes, and the three winners from the Create-A-Deck contest will have their creations in-game for all to use.

In our review of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2, we said it “is such a tremendous turnaround from 2015’s disastrously dismal Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 that it’s difficult to believe they share even a shred of DNA. The accessible yet tricky skating is earnest and old-school fun, the wonderful looking levels are lovingly designed odes to the past, and the music is like the hearty embrace of an old childhood buddy.”
