It’s been a while since genre-defining skate-em-up OlliOlli first tickled the thumbs of trick-hungry gamers. After multiple successful releases on various platforms, board lords Roll7 and sprained-ankle amateurs Good Shepherd Entertainment are here to announce the forthcoming launch of OlliOlli: Switch Stance on Nintendo Switch on February 14.
With an almost embarrassing 75 awards and nominations under its belt, including BAFTA Best Sports Title 2015, the franchise is pulling out all the stops for its Nintendo Switch debut. OlliOlli: Switch Stance includes not only OlliOlli but also OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood, living up to the maxim that more is always more.
OlliOlli’s 2D side-scrolling world, straightforward controls and rapid-fire gameplay have found perhaps their greatest home yet on Nintendo Switch. OlliOlli: Switch Stance combines addictive die-and-retry gameplay with hundreds of air-defying tricks and grinds, cunningly crafted levels and challenges, plus fan favorites like Spots Mode, Daily Grind and an unlockable RAD Mode. Take command of the Joy-Con, land those sweet tricks, and bathe your ears in a soundtrack of exquisite electronic head music.
If for some bizarre reason (alien abduction, prolonged coma, meat sweats, etc.) you’ve never played an OlliOlli game, OlliOlli: Switch Stance is your chance to right that wrong. It’s also the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your partner who wish they’d learned to skate when they were kids but now realize it’s far too late. Rub it in.
