Microids and Oddworld Inhabitants have announced a co-publishing deal that will see three classic Oddworld games release on Nintendo Switch.
The first game to arrive is Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD, which will land on the Nintendo eShop on 23rd January 2020.
It will also receive a retail release in Q1 2020, which will have a standard and limited edition – which will include exclusive collectibles.
“We are very happy about this new collaboration with Oddworld Inhabitants regarding the publishing of these three classic titles!” enthuses Microids CEO Stéphane Longeard.
“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.”
Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Sherry McKenna adds: “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.”
