Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD will both be available on PlayStation Vita "very soon", Oddworld Inhabitants has announced.

Speaking on its Facebook page, OI suggested that development on both titles was coming to a close, and that fans won't "have to hold [their] breathes too long" to see either of them.

"Both Stranger's Wrath HD and Munch's Oddysee HD are coming to VITA very soon," said OI. "We just need to get them finished up and through Sony QA before we can release them."

The firm added that news on the upcoming HD remake of Abe's Oddysee would be coming "at the end of September", including confirmation of platforms the title will launch on, and launched a competition inviting users to suggest a new name for the game.

"We need a name for our 2.5D remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee," it said, "and we need it in time for the big reveal later this year. We’ve considered Abe's Oddysee HD, but that makes it sound like we've injected bigger pictures into the original engine.

"This is a grounds-up remake with glorious 3D graphics but retaining the classic 2D gameplay! We need a name that stands out and does it justice!"

To suggest a name, head through to the post on Oddworld.com. If your title is picked, you'll win a signed poster of the game's cover art and get your name featured in the game's credits.

UK developer Just Add Water announced in 2010 that it had secured a deal to develop multiple titles in the Oddworld universe.

In addition to the HD remakes, the studio is expected to be developing all-new Oddworld title 'Oddworld: Hand of Odd'.
