After announcing in march that they would be releasing PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of skateboarding side-scrolling hit OlliOlli, developer Roll7 has finally set a release date.

Director Simon Bennett told Den of Geeks

“We are looking at July 22nd,” Bennett said. “[Which is] my birthday!”

Originally created for the PS Vita the game is a clear example of the possible difficulty of a simple concept game. The user navigates the grindable world from rooftops and junk heaps, all the while performing a verity of tricks from any skateboarder’s arsenal. Addictive and entertaining, the only thing better then landing a solid combo is failing and bouncing your face off the pavement.
