Forget the festive season – this month’s been all about former Xbox exclusives finding a new home on PlayStation. Not content with the long overdue arrival of the original Mass Effect a few days ago, Sony’s also lined up the high-definition remake of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee for PS3 next week.

The downloadable classic will launch on 19th December in Europe, with a North American release date yet to be announced. It’ll set you back just £7.99/$9.99. “In Munch’s Oddysee, players guide legendary Oddworld hero Abe, and his aquatic Gabbit partner Munch, using special psychic powers, cool power-ups, and other special abilities to deliver payback as they reclaim the last Gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of Gabbiar,” explains the press release. Sounds suitably, erm, odd, doesn’t it?

As previously promised, Munch’s Oddysee will be joined by the PlayStation Vita port of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath. The slimmed down sequel will boast a wealth of new control options, all taking advantage of the handheld’s unique functionality. That’ll be available on 18th December in North America and 19th December in Europe for a slightly steeper £9.99/$14.99.

“Continuing our campaign to update the classic Oddworld titles, we are excited to give new and old fans on PlayStation the chance to play Munch and Stranger,” Just Add Water’s CEO Stewart Gilray said.
