Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD will look to make amends for the series' recent shortcomings (i.e. every Tony Hawk game in recent memory) by bringing back classic TH gameplay with improved graphics this summer.

Now the game has a definite release date—at least on Xbox Live Arcade.

Major Nelson revealed via his blog that the game will kick off Microsoft's annual Summer of Arcade promotion when it releases on July 18, followed by Wreckateer, Deadlight, Hybrid, and Dust: An Elysian Tale.

No word yet on a PlayStation Network release date, though it'll likely hit PS3 before the end of the summer.
