A post on the PlayStation Blog revealed that OlliOlli, a 2D skateboarding game, is coming exclusively to the PS Vita in North America on Jan. 21, and in South America, Europe, and Asia on Jan. 22.

British developer Roll7 said OlliOlli mixes addictive, one-life gameplay with over 120 skateboard tricks and grinds. Those familiar with mobile games and endless runners will notice that it looks like a mix between Canabalt and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

OlliOlli will feature four modes. The Career Mode will include 50 handcrafted levels divided into Amateur and Pro difficulties, and will have you preforming tricks and combos to impress the crowd. Completing a level will open it up to Spot Mode, which requires you to reach the end of the level with one large combo. The Daily Grind mode will let you practice a spot for as long as you want, but will only give you one chance to submit your score, which is then compared with those of players from around the world. Finally, RAD mode, based on an early build of the game, only allows for perfect landings and grinds.

Roll7 said that OlliOlli's price will be announced the day it's released.
