Developer studio Just Add Water has revealed via their Twitter account
that the upcoming HD remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath for PlayStation Vita is now set for an Australian release date of December 18th.
According to the developers Twitter posts, the game will weigh in at around 1.4GB and will not support cross-buy, stating that "as a micro-publisher it’s not something we can afford". The studio is currently looking at offering discounts to those who own a membership for PlayStation Plus but nothing has been set in stone.
In the dusty, undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos, cantankerous townsfolk find their settlements besieged by belligerent outlaws. Along comes Stranger, a tall, dark and enigmatic bounty hunter with a critter-firing crossbow. First released in 2005, Stranger’s Wrath has been passionately upgraded for this HD release.
Stranger is keeping a secret and needs expensive surgery to survive. In his quest to earn enough Moolah, Stranger reluctantly accepts the ultimate bounty from the owner of the Mongo River before coming to learn the truth about the valley’s oddball inhabitants, and suddenly his adventure takes a very different turn.
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is currently available on PlayStation 3 and PC.
