Odd is undoubtedly the right word.
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N' Tasty and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD have been announced for the Wii U eShop.
New 'N' Tasty is a reimagining of Abe's Oddysee, the inaugural entry in the Oddworld series from 1997, with a 3D graphical style and new gameplay that is inspired by the original. The game is a 2D platformer starring Abe, a member of the Mukadon race who is trying to free his comrades enslaved at Rupture Farms. Abe has the ability to possess enemies, which he can control in order to solve puzzles and fight other foes.
Stranger's Wrath HD is a high definition port of the fourth game in the Oddworld franchise. Unlike New 'N' Tasty, Stranger's Wrath is mixture of third person platformer and first person shooter. You play the role of Stranger, a bounty hunter who is rounding up outlaws for enough money to pay for a life saving operation.
The original developers, Oddworld Inhabitants, are working with Just Add Water (Developments) Ltd to bring both titles to the Wii U. Both games mark the first time an Oddworld title has appeared on a Nintendo console, though they did appear on the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.
Both Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N' Tasty and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD will be available for download on the Wii U eShop in 2014. No specific release date has been announced.
