Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, a remake of the cult 1997 PlayStation game, is scheduled for release on Xbox One and PlayStation 3 in March.

That means the platformer will arrive on Microsoft's platform about eight months after its initial release on PlayStation 4, which was well received by critics. A PC, Mac and Linux version of Oddworld: New N Tasty is also due for release, coming on February 25.

Meanwhile, developer Just Add Water has yet to put a date on the Wii U and PlayStation Vita version.

"Work continues on the Wii U and PlayStation Vita versions," a company representative told Videogamer.

"Converting our bespoke code, physics, highly detailed art assets and complex audio engines for the two formats from the PlayStation 4 and PC base continues to present engineering challenges relating to performance and memory, but recent progress is encouraging as we strive to make every iteration of New 'n' Tasty the perfect fit for the platform.

"We'll have more to share on the remaining versions in due course."

For anyone interested in this game, you might want to know that the game engages in "cross-promotion", the buzzword which is used to describe how it advertises other games in return for those other games advertising it.

There's no money exchange involved, but if you don't like ads in the games which you play, well, too bad.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Wait, what do you mean? The game is Cross Buy on Playstation so you buy it for one platform you get it for all 3.

I made the mistake of buying this, the game might of been fun back the 90s, but today it's mediocre at best. Terrible controls makes simple platforming section extremely tedious and overall just ends up being frustrating. I breezed through the entire game with a few hickups due to what I just mentionned but the very last section of the game is just stupidly made, I didn't even bother finishing it how much it was retarded. Even on sale for 19$ I regret it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Wow, is it really that bad? Was looking forward to getting this on PC. What makes the controls so terrible?

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> You should be completely fine on PC - especially since you can rebind controls to match the original.


The problem on PS4 was the lack of a run button and pressing X + direction to hop. The latter was conveyed poorly so many players pressed the direction first and would step into mines instead of hopping over them.


But a run button and a hop button were added in the Controls menu in a patch shortly after release. Apparently they're a lot better for players who disliked the original control scheme.

although i don't really care, this should have been pc and ps4 only considering its a playstation\pc classic. it was never on any other systems. this is great for people who never owned pc or playstation though that they get to play a classic they missed out on.

<< LINK REMOVED >> this was a playstation game when the playstations were the greatest deal and the xbox division didn't even exist. that doesn't mean it should never go to other platforms.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Given the trouble Oddworld Inhabitants have had in the past with Microsoft, consider it fortunate that they're even considering putting this game on Xbox One.

I'm sure Sony had a 6 month or so exclusive deal. Doesn't matter I'll buy it day 1 on xb1, just happy it's coming though March will be crazy.

Awesome. My only issue with this version of the game is they have made the walking continuous. Instead of in the old games where pressing left once made Abe take one step. Now though it does make it a little awkward lining him up on ledges and things. I actually feel I have less control in this one than the old one. Especially when trying to navigate past grinders!

This is great news, Oddworld was always an under-appreciated gem.
