Prop skater Tony Hawk has suggested that he’d like to lend his name to mobile titles in a new interview. It’s been a while sine Activision last pushed out a core entry to the series – HD remake aside – but he reckon’s there’s life in the old Christ Air yet.

Speaking with CNBC during the Dublin Web Summit, Hawk expressed his desire to get back on the gaming horse after a few painful bails from the series. He highlighted mobile as a particular area of interest.

He said, “You just have to adapt and you have to realize where people are going to actually play their games. It used to just be Nintendo and PlayStation, and now it’s all kind of devices. So you’ve got to learn to adapt what you know from the technology into those areas. I’ve been wanting to do a mobile game for a long time.”

“I think that we established ourselves pretty early on in our series and so people think of that as the standard for skateboarding video games,” he added, when asked if a new skater game might have a hard time standing out among the wealth of mobile titles out there today.

Do you feel that the Tony Hawk game line could happily exist on mobile? Would you like to see it return? Let us know below.
