You know, we’ve always thought that Easter was kind of a bunk holiday. Sure it’s the highest of the high feasts for some of the world’s biggest religions, but the fact that there’s some sort of bunny that only gives you candy and eggs in a basket means that it can’t really be that big a deal, knowhatahmsayin? Leave it to Just Add Water, then, so give us an Easter gift we’ve really been waiting for: an HD remake of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for PlayStation 3.

The update’s coming packed with 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. No price point has thus far been revealed. This confirms what we heard a few months ago about more Oddworld stuffs coming from Oddworld peoples.
Stewart Gilray, Managing Director of JAW, said: “Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on. 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 last Oddworld game to come out for a Sony console was 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus. We seriously love dishing out wrath, and especially of the Oddworldish variety. Let’s hope that friggin’ Easter Bunny knows what’s good for him and makes sure Stranger’s Wrath is as good as it has to be.
