Skateboard tricks are the most valuable currency in OlliOlli World

Or so says our friend, the frog capitalist.

If you're unfamiliar with OlliOlli, it's part of the new wave of skateboarding games, and one of the first to make it feel great on a 2D plane. It's series game built on big combos, stringing tricks together with grinds and manuals across tricky terrain, spicing up your routes with as many variations in flips and grabs as possible. You can maintain a single combo across an entire level in the previous OlliOlli games, and it looks like you'll be able to do the same in OlliOlli World, with the addition of choosing your route from time to time. Sweet. 

I dig the new 3D look, especially after this trailer. You get a better sense for the intricacies in board-flips, and the opportunity for some indulgent dynamic camera angles. Leaning in close to savor some airtime, a long grind, or the smile on a bird man with huge muscles sounds good to me. 

OlliOlli World is due sometime this winter.
