Nintendo Switch is Getting Stranger

Grab yourself a bounty right now

We are happy to announce that Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 23, 2020.

Two days before the fifteenth anniversary of Stranger’s first public appearance, we hope that fans new and old will love the unique opportunity to play this updated version of a much loved Oddworld Classic.

You can pre-purchase the game right now for 20% off via the eShop on your Switch console or via Nintendo.com.

Originally released in 2005, Stranger’s Wrath was hailed as a “stunning and exquisitely realized masterpiece” by Game Informer Magazine* and earned a Metacritic score of 88/100.  It was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Animation at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Interactive Achievement Awards.  

The Switch version of Stranger’s Wrath HD offers a rewritten graphics renderer that improves shadows and makes those crisp HD textures look gorgeous running at 60 frames per second, at native resolutions in both handheld and docked modes.

Load times are also updated to be blisteringly fast, thanks to a new system designed especially for this new Switch version of our classic Western adventure. And if you’re having trouble getting Stranger’s unique Live Ammo on target, the all new gyroscopic aiming system allows you to make those minor adjustments in the heat of battle.

We’ll have lots of Stranger-related fun over the next few weeks as we get ready for release, so you can follow us on social media and sign up to our mailing list to be kept up to date.
