Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam arriving on iOS next week, pre-orders open now

Tony Hawk is launching a new mobile game next week called Skate Jam. The first iOS game from the skateboarding legend features a classic career mode, global tournaments, and more.

Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam comes almost 20 years after the first version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater debuted on Playstation and later arrived on Nintendo 64 and other platforms.

Announced in a press release, here’s how Maple Media describes the new iOS game:

The action-packed mobile experience, available for pre-order now and free to download worldwide on the App Store® beginning on December 13th, captures the essence of Hawk’s legacy – his unmistakable style, influences, and tricks are prevalent throughout the game. Developed by Maple Media, a Los Angeles-based mobile media, advertising and technology company, Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam will set a new bar for authentic tricks, controls and music in a mobile skate game thanks to Tony himself. The game will also feature:

• Classic Career Mode

• Global Skate Jam tournaments

• Street, park and vert skate disciplines and dozens of Birdhouse skateboards to        collect

The new game will be available on both iPhone and iPad and will be free to play. It will also include in-app purchases for the game’s coin currency.

Pre-orders for the free game are open now on the App Store and will offer early access to the global tournaments. The official release is slated for December 13th. You can also sign-up for notifications on the launch on the Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam website.
