Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc. and Microids have revealed that Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee will be headed to Nintendo Switch later this month. You'll be able to get your hands on it from 14th May.
The game, which was originally thought to be coming to Switch thanks to an ESRB rating found earlier this year, will launch for the system in digital form on that date. A physical edition is also in the works, but that'll be coming "later this year".
The game has you playing as the titular Munch, joining up with Abe in an action-adventure platformer. You switch between both of these characters depending on the situation, using special psychic powers, power-ups, and other special abilities to progress. Here's an official description from the Switch eShop:
How would you feel if you broke your leg in a scrab trap, were abducted by soulless scientists, had an alien device implanted in your skull, and found out your race had been hunted to extinction?
It's up to you to help guide Munch in efforts to rescue fellow test creatures. These critters will be forever loyal to Munch and in turn enable his escape . Once free, Munch teams up with Abe and together they are guided by the wisdom of the Almighty Raisin. They are informed as to how to accomplish their goals, but in order to do so, they must work together. For Munch, his dream is to bring back his species from the brink of extinction. For Abe, it is to rescue his Mudokon buddies.
Using special powers, cool power-ups, and other special abilities to deliver payback to the Vykkers, Abe and Munch reclaim the last gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of gabbiar. May Odd help you!
It'll be available for $29.99 / £26.99 when it launches next month, although a 33% discount is available from now until the 28th May on the European store.
