Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD coming to PSN December 27th

Stranger's Wrath, the Xbox's Oddworld-based action adventure, released to critical acclaim in 2005, with many praising its innovation and graphics. By today's standards though, those graphics are a bit... ugly. After being announced in 2010, an updated version of the game, with HD textures and more, will finally be released on the Playstation Network on December 27th.

Just Add Water are the developers behind this HD remake of the game, which will sell for a cheap $14.99. It's a pretty great price when you see all the work they've put into the remake. Every character model has been updated to compete with today's graphics, of course, but that's not all.

New voices have been recorded for two characters, Sekto's office now better matches what was shown in the FMV, more objects reflect in the water, and even new Easter Eggs have been added. This is only some of what Just Add Water have brought to the game. The full list includes balance changes and trophies, too.

The only things missing are Stereoscopic 3D support and support for the Playstation Move. Stewart Gilray, Just Add Water's CEO, said they intended to include these features, but weren't able to due to time constraints. He then added, "However we WILL be bringing them in an update in a couple months’ time, along with some other little extras we’ve got planned."

What these extras are isn't yet clear, but gamers who opt to buy the game when it hits PSN will still be getting quite a lot of content. The game takes over twelve hours to complete, according to Gilray. That in mind, Stranger's Wrath HD certainly sounds like a worthy purchase.
