Just Add Water has announced it will release an enhanced remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath as a downloadable game for PS3 next Easter.

Originally released for Xbox back in 2005, Stranger's Wrath features a blend of first and third-person action and sees players step into the role of the Stranger, a rough and tumble bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah.

Stewart Gilray, Managing Director of JAW, said: "Since word got out that we've been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we're working on."

He added: "Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too."

JAW has been working closely with Oddworld founders Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna to ensure the remake is faithful to the original. Fans can also look forward to a host of enhancements, including 720p visuals, more detailed character models, normal mapping and self-shadowing, re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation Move and additional bonus material.
