Oddworld’s Stranger gets a big polygon bump on PS3

The Just Add Water development blog has updated with a look at how much prettier (or uglier, depending on your standards for beauty) Stranger is going to be looking in the upcoming re-release of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath on PS3. As you can see from the above image, Stranger now has 20,000 polygons making up his imposing form, an increase of more than six times what he was rocking in the original Xbox release.

Stranger’s Wrath is the only Oddworld game I haven’t played and all of the love I see it getting has really made me regret that decision. It seemed so reasonable back in 2002 to say that I was never going to buy another Oddworld game after what happened to Munch’s Oddysee. I may have been hasty, but at least I’ll be getting an opportunity to set right what once went wrong.
