Later this year, you'll be able to hear favorites from the original games, plus thematically appropriate new stuff.

Activision has announced a lineup of artists who will contribute their vocal talents to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, the reworked compilation due later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game also features a selection of licensed music from the original game releases around 20 years ago (yes, it really has been that long).

The publisher revealed the news during a virtual concert held on Noisey's YouTube channel, a reflection of marketing today versus yesteryear. Other artists who performed included CHAII, Merkules, Machine Gun Kelly and Rough Francis, acts confirmed for the remastered release.
