Oddworld: Soulstorm will be released for the Nintendo Switch, according to publisher Microids, and retail versions are already up for pre.
The game, called the “Oddtimized Edition,” will reportedly be “optimized for Nintendo Switch to take full advantage of the platform’s unique abilities,” according to Microids, who also guarantee that the transfer will include all the gameplay elements from its debut on other consoles.
Pre-orderers will receive a particular collector’s box that includes the Switch regular edition of Oddworld: Soulstorm, the same collectible case with 24 cartridge slots, and a unique 9-inch (22 cm) silver statue of the lead character Abe, the Mudokon hero.
Additionally, they will receive a deluxe Pix’n Love Publications 160-page artbook, a unique keyring from the Mining Company, three screenprints, and stickers from the Old Mudokon Tribe.
The actual game is, in fact, a remake of the beloved PlayStation 1 adventure Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, in which our hero Abe battles the vicious Glukkons who have captured his fellow Mudokons in order to use them as slaves to make the dangerous, bloodthirsty drink Soulstorm Brew. The elements of the game are listed below.
Incorporating RPG-lite aspects and giving players the freedom to play whatever they want—aggressively or passively—to evolve the platforming genre. To get resources, pickpocket adversaries, raid lockers, dig through rubbish and look for secret places.
You can purchase items that allow you greater freedom in how you choose to approach the game’s numerous difficulties by exchanging resources at vending machines.
The game’s release comes after Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, which had its Switch debut back in 2020. In our evaluation, we chose to give it a 6/10 and said, “It has its scenes of motivation; the Stockyards stage is so brilliantly noticed that it can briefly trigger that false memory of “this is how the original looked!” but it isn’t enough to make it up for the disappointments that come from many, many radical changes.”
