Munch's Oddysee HD Lands On PS Vita This Week

Abe's back, with a new buddy called Munch, to rescue more Mudokons on your PlayStation Vita.

Hey Oddworld fans.

We’re excited today to announce that this week we’ll be releasing Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD onto the PlayStation Vita via the PlayStation Store across the US, Canada, the UK and Europe.

For those that don’t know the game, our lovable hero Abe is back after starring in the first two Oddworld games (and this year’s Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty on PlayStation 4), but now he’s playing second fiddle to a new hero called Munch.

Munch is a Gabbit, and the last of his kind, and as guardian angel of both Abe and Munch it’s your destiny to bring the latter’s species back from the brink of extinction.

Munch and Abe’s destination is Vykkers Labs, a floating pharmaceutical station running all sorts of grizzly experiments on Oddworld’s cutest critters in the name of a better fabric softener. It’s here they’ll find not only stockpiled Mudokon eggs on sale to factory owners as cheap labor, but also the last can of Gabbiar, the disgusting delicacy that is raw Gabbit eggs.

On their way they’ll infiltrate factories and bankrupt the CEOs by donating to a corrupt charity that’s funding their latest Oddysee.

Munch’s Oddysee carries many similar themes and mechanics to Abe’s Oddysee, including the planned extinction of a species, rescuing slaves and test subjects, and the ability to take control of your enemies, but expands massively with the option to switch characters at any time, pick up and throw objects, swim in water, and use new GameSpeak to incite slave rebellions, native uprisings and lab rat revolutions.

It was originally our first venture into 3D games for Oddworld back in 2001, but has been re-crafted for Vita using the same enhanced graphics and tightened controls as the PlayStation 3 version of a couple of years back. We think it’s a great fit for the handheld, and are delighted to finally offer it.

Please note that the game is only available in English.

We’re also excited to announce that this week Munch’s Oddysee HD on PlayStation 3 will be available across Europe. Again though, please note that Munch’s Oddysee HD is only available in English.

Oddworld fans waiting patiently for even more Abe should rest assured that we’re still working hard on the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 versions of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, too – we hope to have more details on those versions soon.
