Another Oddworld set for HD, Hand of Odd revived

Just Add Water are hard at work on a bunch of HD updates for the cult favorite Oddworld series right now, and they’ve just added one more title to their list.

Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee will be getting its own coat of 780p paint on PS3. This one started life as an early game for the original Xbox, taking the series into a 3D environment. You can also expect it to be a part of the PS3 version of the Oddboxx, a bundle that packs in Abe’s Oddysee, Abe’s Exodus, and Stranger’s Wrath. Munch’s Oddysee will launch by itself in October.

Perhaps the more exciting news is that JAW are also working on a brand new game for the universe. Titled Oddworld: Hand of Odd, the game is a revival of a strategy title that was cancelled back in the 90’s. It’s being designed for more casual players, and is likely to grace the PCs, Macs, and tablets. PS3 and 360 will probably miss out due to the interface.

We were starved for Oddworld games for a long time, and now it seems like JAW will never stop churning them out.
