Crash Bandicoot (sorta) crashes Tony Hawk 1 and 2

Tony Hawk 1 and 2 just Crashed. A crossover for the ages, Crash is really no stranger to boarding. It’s just that his boards usually have jets on ’em.

Hawk and Bandicoot

Two classic franchises have just had new (sorta in Tony’s case) titles see release, with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. And now, they have just crossed over.

No, there’s no skateboarding Bandicoot (that we know of), but there is some Crashing good wear for created skaters. However there’s also a hitch to get this free update, and that’s that you have to have purchased both games.

If you did though, you’re in for some fun stuff. The DLC adds in shirts, hats and a deck, all branded with the famed Bandicoot and his sister Coco.

Worlds Collide with Crash Crossover. Crash is known for his mischievous maneuvers, and as such, Vicarious Visions couldn’t resist dropping him into Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 in a non-traditional way with some marsupial-inspired items from Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. In Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, players will enjoy Crash and Coco-branded in-game swag, including nine shirts, three hats and one skateboard deck.

Activision press release

If you don’t have both Crash 4 and THPS1and2 though, you’re still in for a new drop of stuff. Activision has revealed that today has brought a bunch of fresh content to the games.

The free and paid stuff includes:

  • The Birdman Pack Benefiting Charity. Created in collaboration with The Skatepark Project (formerly the Tony Hawk Foundation), the Birdman Pack features classic and additional boards from Birdhouse and Powell-Peralta not originally included in the game, as well as an exclusive new TSP deck created specifically for charity. This limited time Create-A-Skater 10-deck bundle will be available as DLC* for SRP $4.99, and 100% of Activision’s net proceeds for this pack will help support the construction of public skateparks for youth in underserved communities. 
  • Shred with Each Skater in Solo Tours. Now, players will be able to replay Tours mode with individual skaters allowing them to max out stats with each of their favorite pros. At the start of each Solo Tour, all Goals and Medals will be reset, while current Tours mode will move to “Crew Tours” so previous progress will not be lost.  
  • New Challenge Sets, Tuning and More. New objectives within online Multiplayer, Create-A-Park and Combo Practice will reward fans with plenty of XP and in-game Cash to spend at the Skate Shop, while skilled players will be able to reach Level 100 and earn XP faster. Multiplayer playlists will also be improved for better randomization of Parks and Scores in both Jams and Competitive modes. 
  • Fan-Favorites from Create-A-Deck Contest. Three talented fans won the right to have their art featured as custom decks in Create-A-Skater as part of a recent community contest. Fans can ride these masterpieces in the game now.
