Check out gameplay for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 on Switch

Bird's the word!

After a pretty obvious tease yesterday, Activision confirmed today that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2 is coming to Switch sometime later this year. Wondering how that version is shaping up? You can have a look at Switch gameplay in the video above!

Nintendo, Activision, and the Tony Hawk game accounts on Twitter are talking to each other, leaving fans wondering what's up

The birdman commeth?

Something is going down with Nintendo and Activision. As you can see in the series of tweets above, Nintendo got in on a conversation with Tony Hawk's gaming Twitter account, and the Crash Bandicoot account. While it's never outright stated, it seems like the Tony Hawk tweet is about bringing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 to other platforms.

This series of tweets is interesting for a number of reasons. As you know, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time was just announced for Switch and other platforms, after releasing on PS4 and Xbox One back in Oct. 2020. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 is available on PS4 and Xbox One as well, and Switch owners have been wondering if the game had any chance at coming our way. This tweet certainly makes it seem like something's up, especially with Nintendo's retweets/replies. Nintendo hardly ever replies to tweets on their account, so if they're going out of their way to tweet here, you can bet this is organized with Activsion.

Seems like it'll be just a matter of time before Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 is announced for Switch. Cross your fingers for info soon!

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

Crash Bandicoot: On The Run not completely ruled out for Switch

On the run to Switch?

While Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is a lock for Switch, there's another Crash game in the works that's only mobile for the time being. Crash Bandicoot: On The Run is heading to mobile devices in March 2021, but some people are hoping it could come over to Switch. There's nothing official right now, but it does seem there's a very slight chance.

In an interview with PocketGamer, Crash Bandicoot: On the Run creative lead Stephen Jarrett was asked about the game coming to Switch. The idea wasn't ruled out completely, but Jarrett did say he thought people would, "rather play the games on the platforms they were designed for." Again, seems like a long shot, but if people speak up about a port, maybe opinion of the devs could be swayed.

It's about storage

Thinking about getting the digital version of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time on the Switch? Wondering how much space the game will take up? We have some insight, thanks to the eShop listing that just went live.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time won't be too humungous on Switch, but it'll still take up a decent amount of space. According to Nintendo's website listing and the eShop page, the game will take up somewhere between 9.3 and 9.4 GB of space. For comparison, the game took up roughly 45 GB on PS4, with an initial 30 GB download and a 15 GB day-one patch.
