Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita for $30 as a cross-buy title, meaning buying it on one platform will make it available on all of them.
In a post to its official blog, publisher Oddworld Inhabitants said that it is “really close” to releasing the game, but didn’t give a specific release date. It said it will announce when the game will be available to buy before E3 2014 starts on June 9.
The game will also have cross-save functionality, allowing you to take your progress from the console version on the go with your PS Vita.
New ‘n’ Tasty is a remake of 1997’s PSOne classic Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, a 2D adventure with a great setting and a heavy emphasis on puzzles. The game spawned a direct sequel, Abe’s Exoddus, and its universe was also the home of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger’s Wrath.
Eventually, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will also release on PC, and Wii U, but Oddworld Inhabitants didn’t have an update on when we’ll hear more about those versions.
In March, Oddworld series creator Lorne Lanning said that development on a brand new Oddworld title can begin if Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty shifts 500,000 copies.
