Roller Champions is a free-to-play sports game developed by Ubisoft Montreal for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. To make it short, it’s a crossover between the Rocket League game and the movie Rollerball. Two teams fight in an arena, to score goals on roller skates.
Game Overview - How to play
Some of the ingame skates have clear inspirations (you can customize them):
From what i saw, no grinds are doable (?) but the modules especially in the practice looks really fun to skate on (check the picture below).
The game is out now, you can check people playing it on Twitch. Visit Ubisoft.com/roller-champions for more informations.
Butterflies is a game about inline skating and graffiti. Apparently some people did that before, but they don’t seem like they’ll be doing it anymore.

Check the Butterfliess Youtube channel for the soundtrack and more promo videos & the Itch.io page for future episodes/ updates releases.
Ilya Savosin & Albert Valeev bring you Minecraft Blading. Using foam cubes from the park’s pit, they decided to get creative and found new ways to enjoy skating by building new obstacles, new B.L.A.D.E challenges, and all of those fun stuff we get used to watching those two buddies having a good time!

Jet Set Radio Future Multiplayer (JSRFMP) is a fan made game based on the multiplayer mode of JSRF. JSRFMP is NOT a mod for JSRF! JSRFMP is a fan made remake from the ground up. This also means that it is a free standalone game, and you do not need to own JSRF to play it.
Get the game on Gamejolt.com (public test build & alpha release, around 1gb each version) - Preview of the 0.4.5 build: PLAY.

Justin Thursday came with an interesting design, he replaced the middle wheel slot of a Powerslide Trinity frame by a 3d printed h-block he designed. More goodies on Justin Thursday’s Youtube Channel.

Skater XL (skaterxl.com) is a $40 skateboarding game (Steam Page) ; recently a mod called Blader XL (mod page) surfaced and allows you to play the game as a rollerblader. The mod is pretty popular on Youtube.
How to install the mod
Download the Blader XL mod ; you’ll also need two other files: XLGearModifier & XXLMod ; the XXLMod is not available on the regular page at the moment, you can get it via their discord.
XLGearMod is used to port the assets (skates) into the game and DawgVinci’s XXLMod3 has presets available to set your feet up in very specific circumstances. Included in this download are Assets and textures for skates, presets for various grinds/grabs, and a stats preset for “ideal” rollerblading.
- The Stance Presets will go into: Documents > SkaterXL > XXLMod3 > StancePresets
- The Stats Presets will go into: Documents > SkaterXL > XXLMod3 > StatsPresets
- The Assets will go into: Documents > SkaterXL > XLGearModifier > Assets
- Textures go into gear folder.

Here is a list of the available tricks (on the left) ; you can customize the tricks, each trick is defined by the position/ rotation of left and right feet, as well as the left and right toes rotations.

Rock Paper Shotgun: Unknown Pleasures - Steam’s latest diamonds in the rough - Link
Welcome back to Unknown Pleasures, our weekly deep dive into the deep, dark waters of Steam new releases. These are the games that we most liked from the past seven days (with the exclusion of those we’ve already wittered about in detail).
On a Roll: A latter-day Tony Hawk Pro Skater but with rollerskates, basically. Well put together, and straddles a line between comforting late 90s/early noughties familiarity and the inherent physicsy differences of boards and skates, though the Max Payneish fixed-expression photo-faces are a little creepy. There’s some real gnarly maps, such as the plummeting drops of an abandoned water park, and plenty of scope to customise both your skater and their skatepark. Rad! It’s Early Access, so hopefully later builds will introduce a much needed pop-rock-rap soundtrack too.
