VG247 can exclusively confirm that Oddworld developer Just Add Water is to release a revamped, HD version of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for PS3 next Easter. Get the first shots down below.
The game marks the franchise’s first outing on a PlayStation console since 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus.
Stranger was originally released in 2005. The new version will be download-only.
“Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on,” said JAW boss Stewart Gilray.
“Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too.”
The game will ship in 720p and will come complete with normal mapping, self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, Move support and additional material, of which JAW’s saying nothing as yet.
JAW’s most recent game was PSN shooter Gravity Crash. The British studio announced in July that it was working on Oddworld titles across “multiple platforms”.
Discussions between JAW and series creators Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna began back in June last year.
