Cult actor Danny Trejo will appear in OlliOlli World, it’s been confirmed.
The 77-year-old actor, who has more than 250 film credits to his name including Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn and Grindhouse, will appear as an NPC in the colourful skateboarding game.
Trejo will be hidden somewhere in the game’s setting of Radlandia, and if players can find him they’ll be given a side quest.
Players who complete the side quest will receive a special cosmetic item which can be applied to their character.
Trejo also recently appeared in free DLC for Far Cry 6, which contains two missions starring Trejo as himself rather than a character.
In the first mission, titled Danny & Danny vs Everybody, players team up with the Machete star to fight Antón Castillo’s forces, who are trying to stop Trejo making tacos to feed the hungry.
When this mission is completed a new Special Operation (the game’s sixth and final one) is unlocked, in which Trejo helps students protesting Castillo’s military.
Whereas its predecessors sported a more retro, pixel art look, World has a new cartoon-like appearance with characters and backgrounds reminiscent of animated series like Adventure Time and Steven Universe.
In a recent VGC OlliOlli World hands-on preview, we said: “At this stage, OlliOlli World looks like a natural evolution of the series and promises to offer the same sort of compelling and ‘one-more-go’ gameplay that made the first two games so well-loved.
“It remains to be seen how lengthy the single-player campaign is, and whether some of its later tasks will simply become so difficult that they become annoying, but so far it seems to be skating that line between fun and frustrating just about right.”
