Robomodo reveal Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD soundtrack

By  •  News

We’ve all been curious as to what would be on the soundtrack for the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. Will there be a return to the classics or will it be filled with new music? In an interview with Robomodo, they finally revealed 14 of the 16 tracks that will comprise of the soundtrack. Standouts include Superman by Goldfinger and Bring the Noise by Anthrax feat. Chuck D. Catch the 14 after the break and here’s what Ken Overbey, producer/product manager said about the soundtrack:

It was a little difficult. We definitely wanted to bring back some of the songs from the original soundtrack, but wanted new songs as well. The most difficulty we had was our budget, which was very small, and the scope and time frame; it was a lot of work to get it all lined up and get the songs in. You have to put out a risk analysis report and you have to point out to the publisher what the biggest risks are in the development. Soundtrack, Patrick and I both agreed, was the number one. Anyone who knows the game knows the music is just as important as the gameplay.
