OlliOlli Will Be A Cross-Buy Title On Wii U And 3DS

Roll7 and Curve Digital have announced that OlliOlli will be arriving very soon on Xbox One, Wii U, and 3DS. For those planning to pick the game up on a Nintendo platform, you’ll get a bit more bang for your buck.

OlliOlli will be the second title eligible for cross-buy on Wii U and 3DS. If you purchase the game on one of the platforms, you’ll unlock the other via Nintendo ID.

Curve Digital is the first third-party to have access to this feature. OlliOlli is only the second title announced to support it, with the other (Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars) launching the same day.

OlliOlli comes to Wii U and 3DS on March 5. Xbox One players can have at it on March 6. For more, on OlliOlli, check out our review.

 

Our Take
It’s great to see Nintendo starting to move toward cross-buy. This is a feature that needs to become pervasive in the company’s ecosystem. It should also extend to virtual console titles as soon as possible. This is a move in the right direction, but the sooner Nintendo goes all in, the better.
