Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath remake coming to your PS3's world next year

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.

ABOVE: That’s some John Wayne action right there, pilgrim

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.

    I loved this game on the original Xbox and can't wait for this.
  • thedonut - September 4, 2010 2:35 a.m.

    this was my favorite original xbox game... and i wish it were multi platform that would be great

    Aw man, I loved the hell out of this game, but Microsoft never updated the backwards compatibility to let me run it on my 360. I wish this was a multi platform remake… I guess it serves Microsoft right for being idiots regarding the Oddworld franchise.

    We have Red Dead to thank, I think.
  • garnsr - September 3, 2010 11:09 p.m.

    I still wonder why the Xbox version was never made compatible with the 360. I got stuck on the original version, and I'm not sure I'd try it again on PS3, maybe on PSN I would.

    And I jizzed in my pants...
  • reveffect - September 3, 2010 10:38 p.m.

    oh god yes we need a beyond good and evil hd remake since its taking forever for the sequel. but i am confused why they would make it exclusive on the playstation 3 when it was released for the xbox and ps2 i think, i know it was released for the xbox but i never heard anything about a ps2 version. anyways im happy for the ps3 owners but i wish they would do the same for 360 owners too just to be fair.
  • NightAce84 - September 3, 2010 10:37 p.m.

    :( I want an xbox 360 remake. I might have to buy a PS3 for this...
  • rafa_slash - September 3, 2010 10:02 p.m.

    Thank God,its always been on my "list" but now I'll definitely play it Sooooo, what happened to those movies they were making?
  • TKTOWA - September 3, 2010 9:08 p.m.

    I'd really prefer Munch's Oddysee.
  • Ashkael - September 3, 2010 9:07 p.m.

    The only thing better would be an HD remake of Beyond Good & Evil or perhaps Psychonauts.
  • Onepersonwithnoopinion - September 3, 2010 9:01 p.m.

    Not so exclusive now, eh?
  • batmanboy11 - September 3, 2010 8:59 p.m.

    I never got around to playing the original. Maybe I'll buy this then.
  • OneToBoner - September 3, 2010 8:55 p.m.

    Oh god yes!
