Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD will be released for download channels in summer 2012, Activision has announced. Robomodo is handling development, and you won't need a peripheral in order to play - this a game for the regular controller.

The game will feature the best levels from Pro Skater 1 and 2, rebuilt and remastered to take advantage of today's hardware. Confirmed stages include School and Downhill.

Fans will also get a mix of old and new pros: Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana), Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Riley Hawk, and Tony Hawk.

"People can come back to it and find new challenges to do, not just the ones we set up for them. But we're going back to the old two minute challenges, collect the letters, get the combos, get the scores. I'm out of my mind excited about it," said Hawk.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater launched for PlayStation in 1999, with the sequel following a few years later.
