Nintendo-Demand: Re-Released + OlliOlli: Switch Stance


I won't complain about this game specifically, but... Nintendo (since the Wii) tends to be the platform to get a second wind out of previously released games. There are some games there, especially from first party... and they're undeniable but all the re-releases are underwhelming. I won't say its because the games suck, but buying new(er) consoles just to backtrack is... not exactly something I look forward too. I may sound like a hypocrite after pushing for Shenmue 1 & 2 to make a return, but that was in light of Shenmue 3 and holding onto the hope that the first two could be remade. In addition, Shenmue 1 on the Sega Dreamcast allowed for you to pick up in part 2 where you left off.

So... put that together and it spells out my desire to have the saves be usable in Shenmue 3. Other consoles aren't free of re-releases, I just notice it more on Nintendo since the Wii. If you're going to re-release... add something to make the replay worth it. Granted, not everyone has pleased every single re-released game, but... it wouldn't affect them in the negative to get more out of the deal as a result of supporting the second wind game.


OlliOlli: Switch Stance Brings the Legendary Skate Series to Nintendo Switch on Feb. 14

AMSTERDAM and LONDON  Jan. 8, 2019  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 Feb. 14, 2019.

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.
