JAW's Oddworld remake a PSN exclusive

Stranger's Wrath supports PS Move.

Just Add Water's Oddworld game is a downloadable PlayStation Network-exclusive "enhanced remake" of 2005's Stranger's Wrath.

Due out next Easter, it enhances the original Xbox game with 720p visuals, more detailed characters, normal mapping and self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation Move and additional bonus material yet to be revealed.

The game marks the series' first appearance on a PlayStation console since 1998's Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

"Since word got out that we've been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we're working on," said JAW managing director Stewart Gilray.

"Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too."

JAW's worked closely with Oddworld founders Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna, a move the developer says will "ensure the remake is faithful to the original moolah-chasing epic".

The game's first screenshots are below.

Never heard of Oddword: Stranger's Wrath? Christian Donlan took a trip down memory lane in a retrospective last year.

Oh, and it managed an impressive 7/10 in Eurogamer's review.
