Roll7’s twitch 2D skate sim is making a return with an abundance of new features
As a big fan of skating/extreme sports sims there’s been a bit of hole in my life as the genre appears to have fallen from grace in recent years, although Tony Hawks is touting a new THPS game for PS4 (finally). Last year OlliOlli came along and despite it’s side on 2D-ness the game did an excellent job of recreating the skating experience, flavoured with some truly monumental bails.
Now OlliOlli developers Roll7 are taking the game to a new level with the upcoming OlliOlli 2 and to give people a look they’ve brought out a new debut trailer which we have below.
Dropping into a series of new levels inspired by Hollywood film sets, OlliOlli 2 boasts “all new Ramps and Epic Hills allowing for monster air and multi-route levels.” The game also gives you more tools to skate and create bringing in Manuals, Reverts, Revert Manuals and Grind Switching, allowing those callused-thumbed perfectionists to ramp up bigger combos.
As stated by the trailer OlliOlli 2 is due for PS4 and Vita “soon”
