Oddworld Inhabitants communicates new information about Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee - New 'n' Tasty. On the menu: Pricing, Cross Buy and Release Date Update. All this in the press release available after the jump, along with some new images.

Hi Inhabitants! As you’ll have no doubt gathered from our recent gameplay trailer we here at Oddworld (and Just Add Water) have been working every hour we can to ensure that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is the game we want it to be, with the best possible gameplay, amazing visuals and innovative sound design.

And we’re very, very nearly there.

How close? Really close.

In the last few weeks we’ve evolved the way the creatures of New ‘n’ Tasty behave and interact – it’s now an altogether smarter, more exciting experience; we’ve tweaked and refined the level design to make the whole game flow better than it ever has and we’ve been pushing the cut-scenes to ensure that our rich storytelling remains very much at the forefront of it all.

We know you, our biggest fans, are eager to play the game, and we’re doubly eager to share it with you – but we just need a few more weeks to get it exactly where we want it to be. So, in terms of a release date – we’re going to be able to announce when the game will be available to buy before E3 starts on the 9th of June. The game won’t be out before E3 – sorry – but that’s our promise in terms of letting you know when it will be.

We are especially excited to confirm the price of the game – Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 for $29.99 in the US, €24.99 in Europe and – approximately – £19.99 in the UK.

We’re also delighted to reveal that the game will be Cross Buy on PlayStation platforms, meaning that if you buy New ‘n’ Tasty from the PlayStation Store on one platform, you’ll also get the other two versions included. We’re also busily implementing Cross Save, so you’ll be able to take your progress from the PS3 and PS4 versions on the road (and vice versa) if you also have a Vita!

News on other platforms to follow in due course.

We’ll have much more information for you on Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty to come over the next few weeks. In the meantime, ensure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest for the latest updates.

That is incredible news and for somebody with all 3 consoles, I am delighted. They really underplay the talent of this studio, I wish they released a great Behind the Scenes with this studio. Would love to see Lorne Lanning in the recording booth doing Abe's voice ^_^

Super clean IQ. Nice we're getting cross play/save/buy. I'll be able to keep playing at work and then resume at home. Price is a bit steap, but if it means we get the sequel and potentially a new installment...i don't care. Hopefully there is the usual PS+ discount too.

More waiting *sigh*
Cross buy is undeniably cool though.

Really beautiful-looking game. I'd like to see another Oddworld game with these kind of visuals but in a sandbox setting.

    MrWhite Just 2 camera angles, which is a bummer, but still fun. Two behind the goals, and one up in the stands overlooking the whole pitch. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite Every game in stereoscopic 3d. It's not 360 degrees like you're in the stands, more like you're in a directors box viewing out. (1 Hour ago)
