Oddworld Remake Gets Renamed, New Footage Released
Okay, so the new name is a little long. But it still works.
An Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey remake has been in the works at Developer Just Add Water and at first, everyone was just calling it "Oddworld HD" or something like that. However, according to news freshly received at the Eurogamer Expo, the anticipated upgrade has the official title of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New N' Tasty.
Remember, the game is being entirely remade from the ground up, so perhaps "Oddworld HD" wouldn't have done justice to such an ambitious project. The critically acclaimed title was an original PlayStation game so yeah, it probably needs to be entirely rebuilt. New N' Tasty is scheduled to launch this fall for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Vita, and they've tossed out some new footage as well. Man, I remember this...it was one of my favorite games of the entire PS1 generation. So unique, so beautiful for the time, so challenging...just so freakin' cool.
