Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath Remade for PlayStation 3

By Alice O'Connor, Sep 03, 2010 6:27am PDT Oddworld Inhabitants' Xbox exclusive Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is being revamped for release on PlayStation 3 next year by Gravity Crash developer Just Add Water.

The remake of the celebrated bounty hunting title will have, JAW says, "stunning 720p visuals; much more detail in the characters; normal mapping and self-shadowing; re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation Move; and additional bonus material still to be revealed," while remaining "faithful to the original moolah-chasing epic."

Left, the upcoming PS3 revamp. Right, the 2005 original.

In 2009, Oddworld Inhabitants promised that Stranger's Wrath and its fellow Xbox exclusive Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee would be ported to PC in a series collection dubbed the 'Oddbox.' Oddworld affirmed in April 2010 that the pair would see release on Steam this year, though a planned new Oddworld title had been put "on the shelf."

The PlayStation 3 remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath will be released for download via the PlayStation Network "next Easter," which will fall in late April 2011.

  • Well yet ANOTHER example of how M$ continuously keeps dropping the ball. I remember reading a few years back a statement along the lines of "we are no longer doing backwards compatibility." Cause in M$ eyes it was essentially a waste of time.
    In other words enough time had passed in their collective minds that folks should either a) stop bitching and buy new stuff or b) M$ felt that what they had done was good enough of a good faith effort.
    Too bad no one bother to ask the gamers what games they actually wanted to play from their old collection.
    I waited forever for this game to be BC, instead I got a "fuck you very much" from M$.

    Thanks for the hook up Sony!
