Oddworld Inhabitants remains coy about any new Oddworld games they might be working on, but they've been more than upfront with their plans to revisit old games and get them out to new places. First, they decided to unload their core title library on Steam, and now they've revealed that "Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath" will be getting an HD treatment and re-release for the PlayStation 3.
"Since word got out that we've been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we're working on," JAW managing director Stewart Gilray said in a press release. "'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."
Oddworld creators Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna have been involved in the process, according to the announcement, which anticipates an Easter 2011 launch date. 720p visuals, sharper character models, remastered dialogue and PlayStation Move support will all be a part of the package, along with some mystery extras that are yet to be revealed.
I think they should throw in some wacky new living bullet creatures while they're at it, too, because the weapons in this game were by far the most memorable part of this "experience" (and "Stranger's Wrath" truly transcended gaming to become an experience) for me when it first came out.
