Eight new Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 characters have been revealed for the roster of this upcoming skating game. Although this remaster is bringing back a lot of the classic pros, it's also adding some new personalities into the mix — and one of them knows Mr. Hawk rather well indeed.

It should be made clear that these new faces aren't going to be some kind of post-launch DLC — they're going to be made available in the game at launch according to a press release. While a few of these pros have featured in previous Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, this marks the first time than any of them will be available in either Tony Hawk's Pro Skater or Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
Notably, one of the eight modern additions to the game is a very familiar face: Riley Hawk. While Tony Hawk's son is a fearsome skater in his own right, he's decided to go down the path of street skating rather than aiming for the high-flying antics of his dad's vert skating career.
