While Oddworld Inhabitants are set to release a Switch port for Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath this month, the developer has signed a co-publishing deal with French publisher Microids to bring more classic Oddworld titles to the hybrid console.
The two companies have announced two more classic games (Editor’s Note: Featured image is Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee, this is just speculation) will be following Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath sometime throughout this year.
The press release notes Oddworld Inhabitants are planning to release four titles this year, including Oddworld: Soulstorm for Windows PC (via the eEpic Games Store). The other three are probably these three classic games.
“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,” said Stéphane Longeard – CEO of Microids. “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.”
Sherry McKenna, co-founder of Oddworld Inhabitants added, “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.”
