Those in North America will need to wait a little longer to get their hands on the HD remake, with the game pencilled in for a December 27th launch.

"I wanted to first thank you all for your patience, it’s been a long wait I guess, but at the same time it’s been even longer for us. We’ve been working on Stranger’s Wrath, one way or another for around 15 months now. From the initial discussions, to actually starting work on the project true, to then getting it done," Just Add Water gaffer Stewart Gilray revealed on the PlayStation Blog.

"As most of you may know we originally planned to release the game around Easter, to be able to do that we were to have started full development in September last year, but as it transpired, we didn’t actually start until April 2011, which gave us our hoped late Summer release; but we ended up spending another couple of months on it, so here we are done and dusted for release."

The game won't support PlayStation Move and stereoscopic 3D at launch as previously announced, but Just Add Water is promising both features will be included in a future update.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD will cost you a lowly £9.99. A PlayStation Plus discount is hinted. Click through to the PlayStation Blog for the full list of upgrades and tweaks.
