Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 (opens in new tab) remake on Nintendo Switch could be happening, according to this leak via a new datamine.
Posted by DarthBellic on Twitter, files within the recently released THPS 1 + 2 Warehouse demo (opens in new tab) reveal input images for all three official control schemes on the Nintendo Switch, including that for the Pro Controller.

It’s possible that this data merely confirms that developer Vicarious Visions was experimenting with the possibility of a Switch port internally, before scrapping the project altogether, so we can’t take the discovery as guaranteed proof that the game is hitting the platform in the near future.
That said, Activision has form for releasing Switch ports of its remakes within a few months of their original launch, as was the case with the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (opens in new tab) (which Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater developer Vicarious Visions also worked on) and Spyro Reignited Trilogy (opens in new tab).
So far, the upcoming sports action sim has been announced for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but we’ve reached out to Activision for comment on this newly discovered information and will let you know if we hear anything more.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is launching in just a few weeks’ time, on September 4. If you can’t wait till then, it also looks like the entire selection of playable characters (opens in new tab) has leaked online too, though beware that it contains minor spoilers for a few surprise appearances.
