Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty!

The Switch version of action puzzle platformer Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! will launch both physically and digitally on October 27, Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants announced. Nintendo eShop pre-orders will open on October 13.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! first launched for PlayStation 4 in July 2014, followed by PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam in February 2015, Xbox One in March 2015, PlayStation 3 in April 2015, PS Vita in January 2016, Wii U in February 2016, and iOS and Android in December 2017.

Here is an overview of the game, Microids:

New ‘n’ Tasty serves up the freshest game ingredients such as organically grown and breathtakingly enhanced visuals and audio, grass-fed gameplay that is deeper and filled with piping hot delicious action, and a scrumptious story that if fans don’t eat up, the Glukkons may.

The action begins with our hero Abe serving as a simple floor-waxer at RuptureFarms before stumbling into a meeting and overhearing his boss, Molluck the Glukkon, discuss future plans to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into Tasty Treats as a final effort to rescue Molluck’s failing meatpacking empire.

Co-published by Microids, Nintendo players must help Abe on his epic journey as he tries to escape his fate and save fellow Mudokons at RuptureFarms, and maybe even become something far greater than he imagined, a catalyst for change in the face of an oppressive world.

Will Abe change his fate, as well as the fate of thousands of fellow Mudokons?

Will you be able to stomach Abe’s first step on his epic journey?

Or will Abe go back on the menu!
