Preview: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Author: iPhone Reviews // Category:

This is hot off the press, Tony Hawk himself has lifted the lid and announced via Twitter that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is coming to the iPhone 'soon'. He has stated that he couldn't keep it to himself any longer and has confirmed it's real and has screenshots to prove it.

From the look of the screenshots I would be putting my money on the game being controlled by tilting and different variations of grabs, grinds using the D-Pad on the screen. The game looks like it is easily set out so anyone can pick this up and know what to do, something I thought was lacking in Mike V: Do or Die. Knowing Activision this will probably be a $9.99 title like COD: Zombies.

Some of you might be familiar with a video made months ago showing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 working on the iPhone, but the game couldn't go any further as it wasn't made or given permission by Activision. For whatever reason Activision has now taken the game on board and are now set to challenge Electronic Arts upcoming title Skate It sometime in the near future we hope!

Continue coming back to this post as I will continually update it as more information about this title is released, stay tuned for more soon hopefully!

Original Announcement on Tony Hawk's Twitter:
"In the PR world, this is considered "going rogue," but I'm too excited to contain it. This is real & dropping soon."

Confirmation that the game is going to be Pro Skater 2:
"Right, down, circle #thps2foriphone"
