The London-based indie studio has revealed the former PS Vita exclusive will now also be available for PS4, PS3, PC Mac and Linux.

No release date was set aside from a "Summer 2014" window, and it is unclear whether the game takes advantage of PlayStation's cross-play promotion, where purchasing the game on one device unlocks the download on others for free.

Spain based porting studio BlitWorks will work on the PS4 and PS3 versions, Roll7 said, while the boutique publisher Devolver Digital is working on the PC, Mac and Linux editions.

"We already have a first playable up and running on the PS4, it's like our little OlliOlli grew up and got some balls," said Roll7 director Simon Bennett.

"It really feels amazing on the Dualshock too," he added.

A patch for the Vita version - believed to be a six-month platform exclusive - is being worked on to fix the game's crash bug.

CVG's OlliOlli review observed that "while a class act on Vita, OlliOlli feels like it was born for PS4".

The review added: "Only a share button can satisfy that compulsion to flaunt your harmonic mastery of its assault courses."
