Are you ready, Steef? Just Add Water is working on a high-definition remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath
. The Gravity Crash
developer announced the project earlier today, highlighting it as the first
in a "long and fruitful relationship" with the original game's developer, Oddworld Inhabitants. "Having a chance to update the great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too," added Just Add Water MD Stewart Gilray.
Set for release on PlayStation Network during Easter next year, the PS3 remake of Stranger's Wrath
will offer enhanced 720p visuals, more detailed character models, remastered dialogue, PlayStation Move support and "additional bonus material."
When it launched on Xbox in January 2005, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath
was notable for being, well, a really bizarre first-person shooter. It placed the franchise's environmental missive inside a wild and weird Western aesthetic, and replaced ammunition with ravenous fuzzballs. An EA-developed port for PlayStation 2 never made it to stores.
