Publisher Microids has announced a partnership with Oddworld Inhabitants involving the distribution of three Oddworld titles on Switch.

First up is Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD. While it will be sold digitally on January 23, Microids will sell the game at retail in Q1 2020. A standard edition is planned alongside a limited edition, which will feature “some nice exclusive collectibles”.

Here are some quotes from both Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants:

“We are very happy about this new collaboration with Oddworld Inhabitants regarding the publishing of these three classic titles! We are going to help as much as we can to ensure these masterpieces get the spotlight they deserve. These three games will fit quite nicely in our catalog where retro gaming has a prominent place. These games captivated an entire generation of gamers and some Microids employees, formerly working with the GT Interactive team, got to work on the original launch of the first Oddworld games more than 20 years ago,” said Stéphane Longeard – CEO of Microids

“Microids champions the Oddworld brand and our goal to create entertainment properties that balance beauty, empathy, creativity, innovation, and craftsmanship. They understand the classic games and indie space. This partnership is a great fit for us, and we are excited to have them onboard as we bring three classic Oddworld games to the Nintendo Switch in 2020,” said Sherry McKenna, co-founder of Oddworld Inhabitants

Microids has yet to say which other Oddworld games are bound for Switch, but Munch’s Oddysee and New ‘n’ Tasty! are likely.
