By now you all know that our new, re-created version of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee has got a new name, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, along with a new logo.

You’ll also know that the game is coming to Sony’s upcoming next-gen console, the PlayStation 4, making the best use of Sony’s hardware we can.

You may *even* have just heard that not only is New ‘n’ Tasty coming to the Nintendo Wii U, but so is Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD.

Lorne and Stewart also went for a casual meeting with the guys from thesixthaxis.com, and dropped a massive tease about Stranger’s Wrath coming out for iOS and other mobile OSes. It’s very early days yet, but it’s exciting!

Well, on top of those platforms, we can also say that the game will be out on Apple’s Mac OS X, and the open-source Linux operating system. Check out the details in the press release below.

San Francisco – June 2013

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, the modern re-creation of the 1997 PSOne and PC classic, will be out on several new platforms, including Sony’s next generation console, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Wii U, Apple’s OS X and open-source operating system Linux. This adds to the already expansive list of Windows PC, Sony PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita, announced at last year’s Eurogamer Expo.

E3 2013 marks the first time new footage has been seen of the game since late last year with Just Add Water working hard to deliver the genuine Oddworld experience fans have been eager for since the announcement. With the new peak at the game come a new, refreshed logo and the final game title, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.

Lorne Lanning, co-founder and co-owner of Oddworld Inhabitants said: “These are exciting times for the independent sector of the industry and both Just Add Water and Oddworld Inhabitants are proud of what we’ve accomplished together. We are very happy to be able to release on so many platforms and look forward to giving new and old fans a chance to revisit Abe’s adventures with a modern twist.”

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee New ‘n’ Tasty will be out across the months following the holiday season 2013, on Sony PlayStation®4, Sony PlayStation®3, Sony PlayStation®Vita, Windows PC, Linux PC, Apple OS X and Nintendo Wii U, published by Oddworld Inhabitants and developed by Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd.

So, the list currently stands as such:

  • Sony PlayStation®4
  • Sony PlayStation®3
  • Sony PlayStation®Vita
  • Nintendo Wii U
  • Windows PC
  • Apple OS X
  • Linux OS

Where are Microsoft’s consoles in the list? We are still hopeful to get the game on the Xbox 360. We have concept approval which means Microsoft have OKed the game, but only if a big publisher distributes it. We’re working on that bit at the moment. There are currently no plans for the Xbox One, due to the same limitations. As we’ve said time and a gain, we are platform-agnostic… we’re happy to publish on any platform that’ll have us!

    Honestly, with every other platform accepting you with open arms, you should just forget about jumping through hoops for microsoft. You started with Sony and going microsoft exclusive killed the franchise. You went cross platform eventually and everything is back on track. You have many fans on many platforms. Focus on making the games we all love without the drama, if ms want you as you are, then all the better, if not, everyone else is glad to have you back.

    Im in luv with this game so much I was only 9 year old when I first played, then Music Instructor made a track for Exoddus I played this game over and over and I luv the story too, I got a question about New ‘n’ Tasty. Is this remake only holds Oddysee in it or Exoddus as well, or u guys planning to make Exoddus after Oddysee’s remake? cos it would be so nice to have Exoddus’s story in hd too, plus I hope u guys will work on some new Abe Title for next gens and pc, I mean a continue of the story. Ofcourse in the same 2D puzzle stuff, I played Munch’s Oddysee too, was great but I like the old fashioned 2D stuff just like the 2 first games.

    Please try and get this out on Xbox!!!!! I’ve been waiting for NnT for sooo long and the fact that it might not be out on XBLA is driving me crazy! I want this game so much but I can’t just buy another console just to play it!

    Okay I am really confused here. When you guys first showed the game at Eurogamer in September, you said it was going to be on XBLA as well. Now it seems you guys are slipping that under the rug, and haven’t said a word about it being on Xbox. I mean I have steam, so it’s not a HUGE deal, however I would love to see Oddworld return to the Xbox. You guys haven’t had an Xbox title since Stranger’s Wrath. I mean no disrespect here, I just love the oddworld series, especially abe’s oddysee, and hope it gets a fair chance to be on XBLA. Thanks for your time

      the last paragraph in this news post explains where we’re at with the Xbox consoles. Whether we are on Microsoft’s platform or not is completely out of our hands.

      It ain’t there fault! It’s those Xbox guys! First you need a publisher, then you can publish on XBLA! And there ain’t no publisher anywhere! No publisher, no release! An XBLA release is totally screwed!Oddworld on Xbox is over! And it’s all those green bastards’ fault!
