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”.

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.
