A new trailer for OlliOlli World arrives, which premieres during IGN’s Summer of Gaming Expo. A frog man sells us life in Radlandia, a veritable anthropomorphic ice skating paradise and elaborate and impossible skate courses.
If you’re not familiar with OlliOlli, it’s part of the new wave of skateboarding games and is one of the first to make it feel fantastic on a 2D plane. It is a series game based on large combos, stringing tricks with manuals and manuals on tricky terrain, seasoning the routes with as many variations of catches and turns as possible. You can keep a single combined at a whole level in the previous OlliOlli games and it looks like you will be able to do the same in OlliOlli World, with the addition of choosing your route from time to time. Sweet.
I'm digging into the new 3D look, especially after this trailer. You get a better sense of the intricacies of flip-boards and the opportunity for some dynamic and indulgent camera angles. Leaning close to savor a breath of air, a long routine, or the smile of a bird man with huge muscles sounds good to me.
Olli World is due to be delivered sometime this winter.
