ODDWORLD: COLLECTION FOR NINTENDO SWITCH NOW AVAILABLE
What’s better than Oddworld Inhabitants’ critically acclaimed Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee, and Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath? All three of them in a beautifully designed single package. Oddworld: Collection for Nintendo Switch is now available at your local video game retailer.
Created by Oddworld Inhabitants, and co-published by Microids, Oddworld Collection lets Switch players experience the oddest variety of classic action-adventure games ever created. Whether you are at home or on-the-go, the Oddworld Collection offers you three distinct adventures to enjoy.
The Collection includes New ‘n’ Tasty, an action-adventure platformer that challenges you to escape from RuptureFarms, a meat processing plant with plans to turn you into their next tasty meat product. Run for your life or use stealth to safely escape and save others. How you survive is up to you.
In Munch’s Oddysee you must “switch” between the strangest video game duo ever to avoid extinction at the hands of evil scientists using animals as product testing guinea pigs, or in this case, guinea Gabbits.
Rounding out the collection is Stranger’s Wrath, which offers you a brilliant mix of third-person exploration and first-person shooter gameplay. You play as Stranger, a bounty hunter with secret to uncover who must earn enough Moola to afford an overly expensive lifesaving procedure.
Known for their infectious gameplay, humor, and exciting storylines, Oddworld games also spotlight ironies that address the greater challenges facing our own human condition.
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath features a unique hybrid viewpoint where the player can switch between first and third person at will, depending on the situation. First person for combat situations, third person for world traversal. You take on the role of Stranger, a mysterious hunter chasing dangerous bounties, using a combination of shooting, platforming, and puzzles to capture your quarry, dead or alive, as well as solve the game’s greater mysteries. Full of Easter eggs and quirky characters, Stanger’s Wrath will reward those with an adventurous spirit.
Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee
In Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee, you “switch” between the characters of Abe and Munch as you try to bust out of an evil animal test lab, reclaim the last Gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of Gabbiar. You must strategically deploy multiple abilities and psychic powers as you try to exact vengeance on the Vykkers while trying to save fellow test creatures and help them battle back from possible extinction.
Oddworld: New and Tasty
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a ground-up remake of the mind-blowing puzzle-platforming adventure Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. While New ‘n’ Tasty is a remake of a beloved classic, it uses none of the original assets. It has a gorgeous HD aesthetic that caters to the modern gamer’s sensibilities. Play as Abe, a hapless, clumsy cog in the corporate machine. You stumble upon a ghastly plan to convert your kind into delicious meaty snacks. Your escape will not be easy, and once free from immediate danger, you will discover the beginnings of a greater purpose and try to save your species from slavery.
