It may have taken longer than expected, but Team17 and Roll7 have announced that OlliOlli2: XL Edition and Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition will both be available on the Xbox One on May 24. The skateboarding sequel will carry a cost of $14.99, while the bloody cover-based shooter will run you $12.99.
The sequel to the critically acclaimed OlliOlli, which itself just came to Xbox One last year, OlliOlli2 features several improvements over its predecessor. New tricks, new levels and an addictive new soundtrack are just a few of the features found in the sequel. In order to make up for lost time, the Xbox-exclusive XL Edition will include the long-requested Freeskate mode, as well as 250 new challenges and 50 new Amateur and Pro levels.
Despite featuring similar vibrant visuals, Not A Hero couldn’t be anymore different than OlliOlli2. An over the top violent, 2D tactical shooter, Roll7’s action title centers around the time hopping BunnyLord. Having traveled back in time in order to save the world from alien destruction, BunnyLord must prove to the citizens of Earth that he deserves to be elected mayor by cleaning up crime via freelance help. The Super Snazzy Edition, however, will include three new levels that let players control the mayoral candidate for the first time.
While I can’t speak to the quality of Not A Hero yet, OlliOlli2 was one of my favorite games to be released last year. The addictive, harsh skateboarding action has further been refined, and the neon-hued visuals give the title a unique look that makes the action really pop in HD. Don’t take my word for it, though, you can check out our original review of the game right here.
