- Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray
has announced that Munch's Oddysee HD officially hits PSN today!
Below are the details, to quote: Munch the Gabbit is now in HD! The team at Just Add Water, with help from the programming staff at Four Door Lemon
, worked hard over the last 18 months to bring you an updated version of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee on PS3.
Gamers met the crazy planet of Oddworld back on the original PlayStation, with Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus quickly becoming classics.
If you played those games, you'll remember the reluctant hero's destiny to rescue his fellow Mudokons from corporate slavery at the hands of Glukkon Companies Rupture Farms and SoulStorm Brewery.
Munch first burst onto our screens in 2002 (on that other console that sounds like egg-fox), following in the footsteps of the now-classic Abe games. Another reluctant hero, the diminutive Munch, is the last of his kind.
His mission: To escape from the evil Vykkers Labs, save all the lab animals and liberate a can of Gabbiar, using the eggs to get his species going again. All with the help of Abe, of course!
We have no doubt that one look at these screenshots will bring all those childhood memories rushing back. Just don't cry on us, though, or we'll get all emotional too.
So, what's new in Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee? Enhanced assets featuring fully remodeled characters, for one, as well as high-resolution textures for crisper-looking environment detail. We've also included new audio fit for PS3, DualShock 3-centric controls, unlockable art, and 46 Trophies – including a Platinum!
Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD is now available on PS3 in North America, starting today. PS Vita owners won't have long to wait, with a version due out early next year.
We hope it's worth the wait! Let us know what you think in the comments.
