Tony Hawk 3 levels seemed to be excluded during the original level selection for the Tony Hawk HD collection, which originally brought together the best-of levels from Tony Hawk 1 and 2. Tony Hawk 3 levels still won't be in the game at launch, but are coming later.

The levels will be offered as DLC, Activision has announced. It may have been due to fan demand, though it's not known for sure, while Activision hasn't announced what levels will be seeing a makeover. Activision is allowing fans to suggest levels on the game's Facebook page.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 is one of the highest-reviewed games ever, receiving perfect scores from a number of outlets and ties Grand Theft Auto 3 as the highest-reviewed game on the PlayStation 2. G4 TV described the game as a "rare and beautiful thing, a nearly perfect game" while GameSpot said the game strikes a "perfect balance between new and old and renders the two previous entries in the series almost completely obsolete in the process," awarding the game a 10/10 rating.

Giant Bomb reported in its original story that reverts - which allowed vertical combos to be tied together with manuals, by tapping a button when landing in a quarterpipe - wouldn't be part of the HD version, though it heard conflicting information after the story went live.

The game has sold 2.4 million copies worldwide, releasing Oct. 28, 2001 for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Gamecube, Nintendo 64 among other platforms and later came to the Xbox and PC in 2002. It was also the first game on the PlayStation 2 to support online play, and was the last game released on the Nintendo 64 in North America.

Following Giant Bomb's first update to the story, the second update mentioned Activision's Dan Amrich, a blogger for Activision, on his One of Swords podcast where he talks about revert. Amrich talked to Robomodo's - the developer - president, where Josh Tsui said the team wants to "stay true to the mechanics" of the source material. That seems to suggest revert will be included, which has been in every Tony Hawk Pro Skater game since. That podcast can be heard here, and the revert comment is made around 42 minutes.
