Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath Remade for PlayStation 3

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."

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.
