Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. and Microids partners up to announce the official release date of the classic video game Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee.

Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee coming next month

The classic video game will now launch on May 14 on the Nintendo eShop first. The physical edition will be launched later this year.

The game is the same old school action adventure video game in the past, but now on the popular handheld Nintendo Switch. It will follow the story of the Gabbit named Munch and he might be lucky or unlucky in this game.

Check out the story details here:

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?

Due to the rich variety of consumer products derived from the Gabbit species, their legacy has nearly come to its end. For the amphibious Gabbit, there is only one lonely individual that survives. However, it won’t be spotted where one might typically find such a Gabbit. This one is currently an entrapped test subject within the horrible testing facility known as Vykkers Labs.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.

You can “switch” between Munch and Abe depending on the situation. Using special psychic powers, cool power-ups, and other special abilities to deliver payback to the Vykkers, Abe and Munch set out to reclaim the last gabbit eggs on Oddworld, which have been packaged in a can of gabbiar.

Here’s the trailer:
