Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD gets PSN release on Dec 27

Oddworld: Strangers Wrath HD will be releasing December 27 on PSN, with plenty of immediately-visible improvements over the original. Stewart Gilray, CEO of Just Add Water, says his company has been working on the port “one way or another for around 15 months.” As well as bumping the whole game up to 720p, character models and environments have been overhauled, as you can see here.

Besides these apparent improvements, Just Add Water's duties on Oddworld Inhabitants' game include improved audio, the addition of difficulty levels and plenty of Trophies and Easter eggs. While the game won't support Move or stereoscopic 3D at launch, Just Add Water has pledged to add these features in future updates, giving you more reasons to go back and play the classic game.

The game will be available worldwide just after Christmas, priced at $14.99. Odds are you're going to want it, too, since it's a really good freaking game that you totally should have played.

    Seriously makes me sad this isn't going to be released on XBLA...

    Never played this before, but holy shite do I want to! The old PS1 Oddworlds were amazing, and although this is a different genre and everything, it looks just as awesome in its own way. Also, complete graphical overhauls like this should be done more often.

    Really looking forward to this on PSN, but I agree that it seems a bit unsporting not to release it on XBLA. Wasn't the original an Xbox exclusive?

    Ahhh I want this to come to XBLA! Please! :( This is like one of my favorite games.

    I want this to come to XBLA so bad. Hope they can come to some kind of resolution with the storage issue. This game was one of my favorites last gen.

    Is it better than Abe's Odyssey? I get they are different types of games, but I honestly couldn't bring myself to play through Odyssey.

    Abe's odyssey is completely different. Think of this as a first person shooter with some platforming elements. The Puzzle solving is more straight forward, but still intuitive and great.
