Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 released back in September last year to much fanfare. It has been successful on the platforms it launched on, namely the PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store on PC. Now, it looks like it may be heading to the Nintendo Switch as well.
It all starts with the verified Tony Hawk Twitter account commenting on Crash Bandicoot 4 heading to more platforms. This then leads to the skater asking the video game character to hook his game up. As part of the interaction, we see the Nintendo of America Twitter account chiming in.

Naturally, if Tony Hawk wanted his Pro Skater 1+2 game to be on more platforms, he’d talk to an Activision executive about it directly. Instead, he approaches the Twitter account of a video game character. It’s quite hard to see this as anything but a marketing stunt. And the fact that Nintendo of America is joining in suggests that it is also in on the marketing skit.
C’mon Crash make it happen for @TonyHawkTheGame!

Of course, this is still just conjecture, but it’s enough to set the internet hype train going. Though Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 makes a lot of sense as a Nintendo Switch game. Either way, it’s probably better to wait for an official announcement by either party before celebrating.
