Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD coming in summer 2012

The new Tony Hawk game to be announced at the Spike TV Video Game Awards later tonight isn't exactly a new game per se. The skateboarder has prematurely revealed "Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD." As with previous games with the "HD" moniker, it will be a high-definition remake of the classic games.

But, don't expect a straight up remake of the PSone original. Instead, HD will take "select" levels from Tony Hawk 1 and 2.

Hawk confirmed to Joystiq that Pro Skater HD will be available digitally in "summer 2012." According to One of Swords, it's expected to run in the "$15 range."

For better or for worse, there's no word if Pro Skater HD will be compatible with the poorly-received Tony Hawk Ride controller. Take a look:
