At the start of the year, developer Oddworld Inhabitants announced that, alongside the recently-released Stranger’s Wrath HD, two further classic Oddworld adventures would be making their appearance on the Nintendo Switch.
Thanks to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), it seems that we now know the identity of one of these titles. Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD has just recently received a fresh “T for Teen” rating, all but confirming the 2016 PS3/PC remaster is headed to the Nintendo console, no doubt with additional features ala Stranger’s Wrath HD.
Released back in 2001, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee was the second chapter in the “Oddworld Quintology,” following on from 1997 PlayStation release Abe’s Oddysee. It tells the story of a small Gabbit named Munch, whose species is being harvested by the brutal Vykkers for their eggs and other organs. Escaping from a laboratory, Munch teams up with Abe on a mission to take down the Vykkers and destroy their airborne fortress.
While there has been no official confirmation of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD for Switch from the developer as of yet, this new rating, combined with the aforementioned plans of further HD ports, makes the release a sure thing. We will keep you informed when we hear an official announcement.
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD is available now on Nintendo Switch.
