Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD using rewritten graphics renderer on Switch
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD isn’t just a simple port on Switch. Along with some new features, Oddworld Inhabitants managed to make some technical improvements.
According to the developer, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD for Switch “offers a rewritten graphics renderer that improves shadows and makes those crisp HD textures look gorgeous running at 60 frames per second, at native resolutions in both handheld and docked modes.” Loading times are also now “updated to be blisteringly fast, thanks to a new system designed especially for this new Switch version of our classic Western adventure.” That’s on top of gyroscopic aiming controls.
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD launches for Switch on January 23, 2020.
