OlliOlli PS4, PS3 Versions Out This Week, Include Cross-Buy With PlayStation Vita
Barely giving us any warning, developer Roll7 announced that OlliOlli will be releasing on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 today in North America, with European launch coming tomorrow. Including cross-buy and cross-saves across PlayStation Vita, PS4, and PS3, OlliOlli will be available at a 10% discount during its first week for regular PSN members, with PlayStation Plus members getting 20 percent off.
A “straight port” of the Vita version, OlliOlli on PS4 and PS3 will feature updates menus, as well as Friends Leaderboards, which are also coming to the Vita version.
Calling it a “monster success,” Studio Director Simon Bennett talked about their shock with the success of OlliOlli since launch in January:
Shahid and Spencer at PlayStation in London pretty much insisted we did the port after the first day’s success, it was totally unexpected and took a while to sink in! We have since been working our collective balls off to bring OlliOlli to PS3 and PS4 – it could not have happened without the diligence and hard work from BlitWorks in Spain and Sam, our QA Manager here.
Roll7 Creative Director John Ribbins added:
We were blown away by the response to the game on Vita and the Steam launch has been fantastic, but to bring our little game to the Playstation 4 is an amazing milestone for us.
A 2-D skateboarding game, OlliOlli features over 120 tricks and grinds, 100 levels, 250 Challenges, and four gameplay modes.
