Round-up of Oddworld News at E3
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.
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!
