Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD release date announced, coming in June

Tony Hawk announced via Twitter today that we can expect the game to return in June. However, this is no ordinary remake. Sure, the levels are being redone with a high-res coat of paint in the Unreal Engine 3, but it wont feature every level from the original game (otherwise we'd likely be paying full price for it like the Halo anniversary re-release or the Wii version of Goldeneye.)

"HUGE thanks to @robojoshy for the donation & for keeping the THPS dream alive with @TonyHawksPSHD (out in June...yeah I said it)," Hawk announced to his nearly three million Twitter followers.

Hawk has previously said that if the game does well we might see more levels come in the future, and that it could possibly even become a platform for releasing all new levels. This might stink a little microtransaction-y, but if it includes levels from Pro Skater 2, then we're in 100%.
