Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath On PS4 Is A Definite Possibility
We're already getting a high-definition remake of the original Oddworld.
But developer Just Add Water doesn't want to stop there. Franchise creator Lorne Lanning told Eurogamer at this year's Game Developers Conference that he'd also like to see a PlayStation 4 version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.
Initially released exclusively on the Xbox in 2005, Stranger's Wrath was more of an action/platformer, while the first Oddworld titles on PlayStation were heavily invested in puzzles. I definitely prefer the latter but Stranger's Wrath did get some decent press; it was re-released in high-def form on the PS3 and Vita, by the way. The PS4 version, however, would boast "some new dynamics."
This is all a wait-and-see scenario, though, as is the upcoming Oddworld: New 'n Tasty, which needs to sell at least 250,000 copies to fuel more high-def overhauls.
