No plans for Wii U version of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD

Two Oddworld games are coming to Wii U: Stranger’s Wrath HD and New ‘n’ Tasty. Previously, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD was released on PlayStation platforms. Might this one come to Wii U as well?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Just Add Water CEO and Oddworld Inhabitants development director Stewart Gilray told us that there aren’t any plans for a Wii U version of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD because the original title “is built on extremely old tech”, and bringing it over to Wii U would likely be a difficult process.

When asked about the possibility of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD for Wii U, Gilray told us:

“I’m afraid not. Munch is built on extremely old tech, to bring it to PS3 and VITA was quite a struggle because of this, and it’s not one I’d want to repeat with WiiU, sorry.”

We’ll have more about the upcoming Oddworld games for Wii U in the coming days.
