olliolli world preview

We recently had the opportunity to play an early demo of OlliOlli World, the new entry in the series that mixes 2D platforming and skateboarding. While we specifically went hands-on with the PC version, the game will also come to Switch for its launch on February 8.

Based on my time with OlliOlli World, I was really impressed by how much fun I had playing it. The gameplay is a bit different compared to the typical titles out there, but it works really well, with each mechanic complementing the other. Be sure to check my full impressions in the video down below.

Switch managed to have its second-biggest year “by quite a large margin”. However, sales were down compared to 2020.

We’ve got a couple of more notes from the NPD Group detailing the latest gaming sales for the U.S.

First up, it’s been confirmed that Switch was the best-selling hardware platform in units sold during December. We’re also hearing that Switch and PlayStation 5 were essentially tied for dollar sales leadership in the month. Additionally, Switch led 2021 hardware when it comes to both unit and dollar sales.

Along with Switch, 2021 was a good year for Pokemon. We already know that Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl were collectively the third best-selling title of December 2021, and it ranked first on Nintendo platforms for both December as well as 2021 overall. Even more significant, 2021 dollar sales of Pokemon franchise physical software reached its highest annual total since the year 2000.
