We’ve known for a while that UK-based developer Just Add Water has been working on a HD-remake of quirky 2005 FPS Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, but now it seems we’re about to hear about more projects related to the property.

As well as unveiling Stranger’s Wrath HD at this month’s GameCityNights event in Nottingham, the Oddworld dev has told Eurogamer it plans to reveal another title at the same time – a revival of a shelved title from the 90s.

No further details about the mystery title have been revealed, so you’ll just have to wait for the official unveiling on April 28.

The update of Stranger’s Wrath, on the other hand, is said to feature 720p visuals, enhanced character detail, normal mapping, self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, Move support and additional undisclosed bonus material.

Just Add Water is expecting to be busy in the coming months, after it was previously announced that the developer would release four Oddworld titles this year.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath will be hitting PS3 later this year.
