Today, Roll7, the developer behind OlliOlli, has announced that their 8bit skateboarding game will be headed to the PS4 and PS3 later this year.
Simon Bennett from Roll7 took to the PlayStation Blog today to confirm the news that their rad game is indeed being brought to the next gen.
“We met with Shahid Ahmad and Spencer Low who help run the Strategic Content team at SCEE, and they recommended that we get the game onto PS4 and PS3. So that’s what we are doing! We have partnered with BlitWorks, based of Barcelona, Spain. We already have a first playable version up and running on the PS4 and a big screen, it’s like our little OlliOlli grew up and got some balls! It really feels amazing on the Dualshock 4 too.”
However, players will have to wait a little bit before they can drop in on the PS4 or PS3. “OlliOlli will remain a PS Vita exclusive until summer 2014 and Roll7 is very close to getting the crash bug that some of you have complained about fixed. When the patch is released we’ll bundle in a nice little update that should put a smile on people’s faces too.”
OlliOlli is currently $12.99 on the PS Vita store.
