Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty has released its launch trailer ahead of its debut on the PS4 on July 22nd. It is a remake of the classic Playstation 2D platformer Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. The game is developed by Just Add Water and published by Oddworld Inhabitants, the original creator of the Oddworld series.
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is the first new entry in the Oddworld franchise since Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath in 2005. The game uses Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee as a blueprint, but has been totally rebuilt from the ground up. The trailer shows off the improved graphics and physics of this release, while still retaining that classic feel of the original.
In their announcement for the new trailer Oddworld Inhabitants said:
“Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty launches next week on PlayStation 4 for players and fans the world over to experience in the comfort of their homes. After putting so much time and passion into an authentic re-creation of the classic Abe’s Oddysee, we couldn’t be more excited about finally unleashing a new Oddworld game for the first time in nearly a decade.
In celebration of the imminent release, we’ve put together a Launch Trailer chock full of gameplay and movie clips. Brace yourself for white-knuckle action, nail-biting suspense and kick-butt superpowers!”
The Oddworld franchise was always a fan-favorite amongst early Playstation gamers. The series offered a very unique world and sense of humor. The series was always willing to reinvent itself, such as its foray in 3D with Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee and a first-person-shooter style game with Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. Hopefully this new game is a revitalization of the series allowing for more Oddworld games in the future.
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will release on July 22nd in America exclusively for Playstation 4. The UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will get the game the day after on July 23rd. The game will feature cross buy and cross save once the PS3 and PS Vita versions become available. Later this year the game is planned to hit PC, Mac, Linux, Wii U, and Xbox One. No specific dates have been announced for those releases.
