And there’s a physical variation coming too.
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, designer Oddworld Inhabitants’ well-known remake of its 1997 puzzle-platformer Abe’s Oddysee, will be making its method to Switch on 27th October.
New ‘n’ Tasty isn’t precisely brand-new, naturally, having burst onto different platforms (consisting of Wii U) back in 2014, however it’s still a pleasure, offering the initial video game’s beautifully wrought tale of meat-processing and transformation – as translucented the eyes of put-upon floor-waxer Abe – a fresh lease of life with splendidly meaningful 3D character designs, backgrounds, and cinematics.
“Despite such significant visual surgical treatment, the soul of the video game has actually made it through together with the visual”, composed GamingOverpowered’s Christian Donlan in his 9/10 evaluation back at launch. “What truly sticks out about Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! is the large coherency of the initial style. It was stunning back in 1997 on the PlayStation when video games did seldom show up with appropriate styles to consider, and it’s still simply as stunning in 2014”.
“Graphics lose their lustre,” concluded Christian, assessing New ‘n’ Tasty’s remarkably effective satirical core, “Design techniques end up being foreseeable and after that forgettable. Injustice, it ends up, seldom heads out of style.”
Those wanting to relive Abe’s journey, or to experience it for the really very first time, can do so on Switch from 27th October. It’ll be readily available digitally through Nintendo’s eShop and as a physical release, in both Standard and Deluxe Edition kinds.
