If we were asked to quote an emblematic moment of late 90s in video game matters, we would surely say that the moment the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater begins, throwing us squarely into its first stage, the bodega.
The relevance of this scenario is such that throughout the entire franchise it has been brought back on different occasions -for example in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x, which was released exclusively on the original Xbox, or as a hidden level in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3.
The very cover of the remake collection Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 has the background bodega.
In short, the bodega It is without a doubt the most iconic setting in the entire saga and as part of the activations of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (a collection that fascinated us, as you can see in our video review below), now circulates a clip centered on a recreation that was made in the real life.
The video begins with interspersed instants of the virtual and real winery, so that we can verify that a recreation as faithful as possible -or at least half of the stage.
‘Do you remember this place?’Tony Hawk says at the start of the clip before diving in and starting to show off some tricks. Look:
It is worth noting the way in which Hawk, 52 years, is still involved with skateboarding not only on a business level or licensing, but also practicing it.
He’s the skateboarder who made the first 900 (one of the most technically demanding tricks) documented and still in 2016, when he was 48 years old, he successfully achieved one, although he clarified that it would be the last time he would do it.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 It went on sale this September 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and is available in standard and deluxe versions.
