Sony today announced that Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD will be available via the PlayStation Network starting December 27 for $15. The updated game will include a variety of changes, including remodeled characters with higher-resolution textures, visually updated environments, tweaked audio, redone menus, new difficulty modes, trophies, 720p support, and more. Stereoscopic 3D and PlayStation Move support are slated to be added in a couple of months.

In Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, players step into the role of the stranger--a mysterious bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for money. Equipped with a variety of strange weapons that use small creatures as bullets, players explore expansive environments ranging from Old West towns and thick forests to industrial complexes in third person, and then transition to first-person for combat.
