First look: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 GBA

Tony Hawk will make his return to Nintendo's Game Boy Advance later this year. We have the first screenshots from and information on the game.


Activision has finally unveiled the follow-up to the critically acclaimed and successful Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 for the Game Boy Advance. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 on the GBA will share many of the features, levels, and skaters with the original PS2 and GameCube versions. For starters, the Game Boy Advance game will include six levels: foundry, Rio, suburbia, airport, Tokyo, and LA. As with the console games, the handheld version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 will include living, breathing maps that are teeming with traffic and pedestrians. The similarities run even deeper, as individual objectives were borrowed from the console games. For example, players will be able to trigger earthquakes in the LA level and skate lines that are similar to those found in the original titles. Naturally, the revert will make it into the GBA game.

In terms of multiplayer options, the Game Boy Advance version will let up to four players compete at once using the link cable. Multiplayer modes such as trick attack, HORSE, tag, king of the hill, and free skate will be available. Players will be able to compete with one of 13 pro skaters or customize their own character in the game's create-a-skater mode.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 will be released this March for the Game Boy Advance.
