Stop What You’re Doing, Watch Tony Hawk & Jack Black Play Pro Skater 1 & 2

Jack Black’s gaming YouTube channel, Jablinski Games, recently saw a very special guest grace the show. The one and only Tony Hawk swung by to play his upcoming title, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2, with Jables and family, and as you’ve probably guessed, it’s must-watch entertainment.

In the video, Hawk and the Jablinski clan (including Jack’s children), partake in a jamming session with Devo before sitting down to test out a demo of the upcoming title.

So far, we’ve only seen screenshots and a trailer for the upcoming title, so getting to see the game in action – played by none other than JACK BLACK and TONY HAWK is a rare treat.

Tony Hawk also took the time to share a lovely story with the Black clan. In the video, he tells Tommy and Sammy Black: “The very first time I saw your dad perform with Tenacious D, he did a thing between songs where he said ‘you know, life on the road is really hard. You’re in the back of the bus, playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and you hit bumps, and then you lose your high score.'”

N’awww, the nostalgia is real! Check out the video in full below, and enjoy some IRL skating from the pro too!

The game itself is also looking pretty *chef kiss* and thankfully we don’t have too long to wait to get our hands on it.

According to a press release, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will be available worldwide as the standard edition, a digital deluxe version which includes unique content and in-game gear, and for the ultimate fan, a collector’s edition which comes complete with the digital deluxe content and a limited-run Birdhouse deck.

For those worried about just how remastered the new game might be, don’t worry – it seems that nostalgia is deep in the heart of the game.

The press release also states the following: “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will blend all the original levels, pro-skaters, old-school tricks and more that gamers remember from the ‘90s and ‘2000s with new, beautifully recreated levels. This faithful remaster will also include blockbuster songs from the original franchise.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PC through the Epic Games Store, on September 4, 2020.
