Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants have announced that Oddworld: Soulstorm Oddtimized Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch,

The award-winning sequel to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty has been optimised for the portable home console “to take advantage of the platform’s unique features” while promising “the same amazing Soulstorm gameplay currently found on the other platforms.”

You must help Abe on his hero’s journey to free more than 1,000 Mudokons from the oppressive chains that enslave them. Confronting an uncertain future and a forgotten past, use your instincts and skills to elude detection, survive insurmountable odds, and maybe provide a spark that sets a revolution ablaze.

Armed with an array of tactics, from stealth to going full-on ballistic by utilizing scavenged trash to craft powerful and incendiary weapons, decide how best to bring the fight to your oppressors and save all the Mudokons. In-game decisions and the number of lives saved in each level will impact the game’s outcome. With four unique endings, the choices you make will impact the game’s powerful conclusion, potentially unlocking the final two fiery chapters. Can you save them all?

There will be two options at retailers in the Oddworld: Soulstorm Limited Oddition and the Oddworld: Soulstorm Collector’s Oddition. Those who pre-order either edition at participating retailers will receive the game’s original soundtrack and a digital artbook:

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:

  • Explosive Action-Adventure Platformer: Evolving the platforming genre by adding RPG-lite elements with player agency to play as you like, whether aggressively or passively. Pickpocket enemies, loot lockers, sift through trash cans, and find hidden areas to acquire resources. Exchange resources at vending machines to get products that give you more agency in how you chose to conquer the game’s many challenges. Craft tools and weapons to use against opposing forces or arm your followers and watch the revolution ignite.
  • Epic Scope: Soulstorm is a 2.9D action-adventure platformer with 15 hours of gameplay, and dozens more for achievement hunters and perfectionists. Epic environments with massive scale to explore by going into the world.
  • Revolutionary: A dark storyline with a twisted sense of humor that shines a light on the ironies that exist in the human condition. A cog in the corporate machine, used for meat and muscle, Abe will attempt to save them all and maybe ignite a revolution.
  • Completionists: Can you save every single Mudokon in the game? Can you achieve the best ending and unlock the final two playable levels? Can you scavenge every trash can and locker, kill or safely apprehend every antagonist, find every hidden area, collect every jelly? More than 3 million players have had the opportunity to do it…will you be the first on Nintendo Switch to succeed?
  • Multiple Endings: Soulstorm has 15 levels, with two additional unlockable levels at the end of the game and four potential endings, each depending on your Quarma. At the end of each individual level, you receive a Quarma score, based on the number of Mudokons you save. If you succeed in saving enough Mudokons throughout all the levels, you’ll get one of the good endings. But beware: if your Quarma score isn’t high enough, you’ll get a more… dire fate! Don’t worry though, as you can always go back to any level and try to improve your Quarma to unlock the best ending.

Oddworld: Soulstorm Oddtimized Edition will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide, with a release date still to be confirmed.
