MWSF: Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is Coming!
1:44 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Charting a new course in the nearly-nonexistent genre of sports games on the Mac OS, Aspyr Media will publish Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 to the Mac OS, a PlayStation and PC title which features tons of realtime 3D skating action. This Activision game has been Westlake Interactive's "Rad" project for quite some time, but now the secret is out. There is no projected release date for this title. Here is an excerpt from the Aspyr Newsletter:

Strap on your helmet and get ready to get some major air, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 for the Mac is currently in conversion, to be released later this year. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is the recent PC release from Activision, developed by Nersoft and Grey Matter.


The radical dudes at Westlake Interactive have been crackin' code and doing a little "research." Mark Adams, President of Westlake, recently boasted a 600,000 score, which is chicken feed to the pros here at Aspyr.


Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is the ultimate extreme sport experience, with a hip hop and punk soundtrack. Go head-to-head on terrain that would make even a novice skater drool. Skate as the legendary Tony Hawk, one of 12 other pro skaters or create your own pro from scratch. Original levels from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater are included in the single-player mode and the multiplayer play modes include single-player career and free skate modes as well as 2-player modes such as trick attack, graffitti, tag and horse.


"Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is the most addictive fast-action game. Your cool factor will double as you begin to using words like ollie, bennihana, boneless and more," says Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr.

The newsletter also mentions that Escape from Monkey Island is being demonstrated at the Macworld Expo. Stay tuned for more expo news!
