Sydney, Australia, January 24, 2020 - Oddworld Inhabitants Inc., creators of the upcoming 2020 release Oddworld: Soulstorm, announced that their award-winning classic action adventure game, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD is now available for Nintendo Switch.
 
Co-published with Microids, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD is available beginning today in the Nintendo eShopMicroids and Oddworld will release standard and limited boxed editions at retail later this year.  
 
Originally released in 2005, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath earned a Metacritic score of 88/100 due to its potent mix of unique gameplay, engrossing storytelling and universal philosophical themes. The HD version for Nintendo Switch offers the same innovative mix of shooter, platformer and puzzle genres with a hybrid viewpoint that allows the player to switch between 1st person action with 3rd person exploration.
 
Complete with new graphical and performance upgrades, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD offers dramatically improved audio and full 1080 HD graphics at 60 fps, super tight gyro-aiming for fine adjustments, and blazing-fast load times.
 
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is a classic 10-plus hour Western motif with sci-fi and socially conscious elements. For completionists, there is an additional five hours of side missions. Coming shortly after launch players will be able to download a free patch providing subtitles for all language in-game (cut scenes already have subtitles) in English, German, Russian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Swedish, Finnish and Simplified Chinese.
 
Stranger is a mysterious bounty hunter in poor health who refuses to use guns. Needing an exorbitant amount of Moolah to buy the lifesaving surgery he desperately needs, Stranger decides to help the local town folk capture wanted outlaws and scoundrels before accepting the ultimate bounty. Rather than traditional shooters with bullets and bombs, Stranger takes a more organic approach to ammunition, using various critters (Live Ammo) to launch at enemies from his crossbow.
 
Led by founders Sherry McKenna and Lorne Lanning, the storytellers at Oddworld Inhabitants fashion cinematic experiences within the Oddworld universe as analogous to that of our own world. Mindfully balancing compelling storylines with propulsive gameplay, Stranger’s Wrath is able to examine timely philosophical themes such as the displacement of indigenous people, the privatization of natural resources, and the rising cost of health care without sacrificing fun.
