Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants have signed a co-publishing deal for three classic Oddworld titles coming to Switch in 2020, the companies announced.

The first game, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD, is due out via the Nintendo eShop on January 23. A retail version will be available in both standard and limited editions in Q1 2020.

“We are very happy about this new collaboration with Oddworld Inhabitants regarding the publishing of these three classic titles,” said Microids CEO Stephane Longeard in a press release. “We are going to help as much as we can to ensure these masterpieces get the spotlight they deserve. These three games will fit quite nicely in our catalog where retro gaming has a prominent place. These games captivated an entire generation of gamers and some Microids employees, formerly working with the GT Interactive team, got to work on the original launch of the first Oddworld games more than 20 years ago.”

Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Sherry McKenna added, “Microids champions the Oddworld brand and our goal to create entertainment properties that balance beauty, empathy, creativity, innovation, and craftsmanship. They understand the classic games and indie space. This partnership is a great fit for us, and we are excited to have them on board as we bring three classic Oddworld games to the Nintendo Switch in 2020.”

The press release also mentions that Oddworld Inhabitants plans to release four titles in 2020, including Oddworld: Soulstorm for consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store. The other three titles are likely the three classic Oddworld titles coming to Switch, which include Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD.
