Revealed today (October 4), boxed Nintendo Switch copies of OlliOlli World will be released on October 28. Physical copies of the skateboarding platformer will cost £16.49, though the box will come with a code for the game rather than a cartridge.

OlliOlli World is pretty much the ideal arcade game,” praised our review. “Incredibly tight systems and gameplay, a feedback loop that keeps you wanting to top the leaderboard, and a soundtrack that makes every session a strong vibe.”

In August, Roll7 co-founder John Ribbins spoke to NME about the studio’s distinct style, which was prominent in OlliOlli World.

“Players and press have described our games as having flow, and that’s something that we want to amplify: we have a fantastic group of people here, a nice culture around the process of making games, and I want us to keep growing and keep making cool new stuff, and keep improving our culture,” explained Ribbins. “I’d like us to keep making flowy, dynamic, kinetic titles and ultimately I’d like us to be known for that kind of gameplay.”

In other gaming news, the next No Man’s Sky update is set to bring a “relaxed” mode, designed to offer a more casual experience to new and returning players.
