New Tony Hawk Game Set For Smartphone Release — For Both Android And iOS
It’s been revealed that there will be a new Tony Hawk game, albeit only for smartphone, which is called Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam. The free-to-play title is said to be coming on 13th of December 2018 and that’s less than a week from now.

The game will be made available for both Android as well as iOS users. It seems that the game will have a career mode, which is common from their game franchise. Addition to that, you can skate in the streets, park, customize your vert skate disciplines and collect skateboards from Birdhouse, Tony’s very own brand.
Skate Jam was made available thanks to the folks at Maple Media, who previously also released skateboarding games such as Skateboard Party and Skateboard Party 2.
The game will be 1.4GB and it will feature microtransactions, similar to what you’ll find in today’s free-to-play games as well.
Early in February 2018, Tony Hawk himself has said that he has chosen to stop working with Activision, whom he had worked with since the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater back in 1999.
Pokdepinion: Well I indeed remember the good old days playing the original on the PS1. The game was simple but it was so addictive. I hope the microtransaction won’t affect the game too much in the new mobile game.
