An HD remake of the classic Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee is headed to the Wii UPS3, PS4 and PS Vita due out Spring 2014! Titled Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty the remake is being developed by Just Add Water, and they've just released an epic new story trailer for the game. 

For those of you unfamiliar with the Oddworld franchise, it was first launched in 1997 with Abe's Oddysee. Set on the Oddworld Planet in an alternate and surreal dimension, it had you play as Abe, and was a great platformer.

The franchise stuck around until 2005, when it was sold off to EA. Since then, several of the other games in the series, including Munch's Oddysee, have been rereleased for PS3. Hopefully, this remake will bring new life to the series and enable it to enthrall a new generation of gamers. New 'n' Tasty has plans for release on PC, OS X and Linux some time after the 2014 console version. 

E3 Reveal: Oddworld - New 'n' Tasty! Fri, 14 Jun 2013 14:22:26 -0400 Smoky Grey

At E3 this week we finally got a good look at the new Oddworld title. If you are an old gamer like me then you should remember how amazing Oddworld was when it first came out in 1997. Now we get our nostalgia tickled by the new Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'n' Tasty.

 This new version of the original Abe's Oddysee has me super excited. The titles in the Oddworld series have always had a great story and were amazingly fun. This new remake was built from the ground up using the original game. From the demo we can see some amazing looking graphics compared to the original. The change from the flip scenes to a fluid scroller has me a little worried but I am sure the developers will do a top notch job with it.

The Story

You play as Abe, a Mudokon slave worker who had his mouth sewn shut as a child. Abe soon finds out that the factory he works at is running out of meat and has decided to start using the slaves as a new meat product. Abe escapes his slavers and is set upon his path to save his fellow Modokons by a shaman known as BigFace. With a deep engaging story and magical powers this title is a must try for anyone who doesn't know the Oddworld series.

The original Abe's Oddysee was a huge success, and this new remake looks like it will keep all of the fans happy. New 'n' Tasty will be a fully digital game releasing on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Steam. It will also be available to Vita, and Wii U users as well. The release date is set for the 4th quarter of 2013 so I expect it will probably come out in time for the anniversary in September.
