Private Division and Roll7 have announced that OlliOlli World is coming to Nintendo Switch, news that was shared in this week’s Indie World showcase.
Promising “a bold new direction” for the series, the skateboarding action-platformer will whisk you to Radland as you search for the mystical skate gods on your quest for Gnarvana. You will have the chance to customise your character’s looks, tricks and style before exploring levels that hold multiple paths, which will lead you to discover all the secrets that the skate utopia hides.
While you can expect “super tight controls combined with a highly-refined gameplay experience,” the developer has made sure that new players will be able to enjoy the game’s deep combo system while pros can prove their skills in mastering new moves and competing against rivals around the world 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,” enthuses Roll7 Co-CEO Simon Bennett. “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!”
Private Division executive vice president and head Michael Worosz adds: “We are thrilled working alongside Roll7 to push the OlliOlliseries forward with a spectacular new art direction while staying true to its signature flow-state gameplay. Flow-state is achieved through that perfect equilibrium of focus and relaxation – OlliOlli World boosts this unique feeling to unreached heights through an intuitive concept and perfected, ultra-tight controls.”
OlliOlli World will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Winter 2021.
