During Nintendo’s Indie presentation, Private Division and Roll7 revealed the next game in the skateboarding franchise, OlliOlli World…
If you haven’t played the OlliOlli games, they’re definitely worth checking out. They offer an interesting approach to the skateboarding genre (almost feeling more like a platformer), that allows you to let your skills shine. OlliOlli World looks to expand on that formula in some really cool ways:
This skateboarding action-platformer marks a bold new direction in this critically acclaimed franchise and is bursting with personality. Players flip and flow through Radland, a vividly vibrant world full of colorful characters, as they search for the mystical skate gods on their quest for Gnarvana. Radland and its dwellers are delightfully weird and crafted with an outstanding, inimitable art style. In OlliOlli World players can customize character’s looks, tricks, and style before they explore levels with multiple paths, discovering all the hidden secrets of this gorgeous skate utopia.
Super tight controls combined with a highly-refined gameplay experience have always been pillars of OlliOlli. But now with OlliOlli World, the platformer ensures new players can enjoy the deep combo system and everything the game has to offer, while pros can really prove their skills, and master a vast number of moves with access to millions of unique levels in the game’s sandbox mode. Players can also compete against similarly skilled rivals around the globe in player leagues.
“We couldn’t be happier to finally bring the vision we’ve always had for the OlliOlli series to life with this ambitious new evolution,” said Simon Bennett, Co-CEO at Roll7. “We wanted to embrace the weird, wonderful, and diverse side of skateboarding culture with a game that’s all about going on a road trip with your friends, finding crazy spots, pulling mad tricks, and most of all, skating everything in sight!”
OlliOlli World is expected to launch this Winter for the PS4|5, Xbox Consoles, and Nintendo Switch.
