Specially Adapted Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty PlayStation Vita comes Today

 Since its launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PC, the latest Oddworld game, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, keeps on attaining greater heights with a release for PlayStation Vita. Oddworld Inhabitants has disclosed that the game, which is a remake of Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey, is launching on Sony's portable platform today, January 19. The game does not appear to be available just yet, though it should come soon.

"PS Vita is a wonderful machine, and for Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty it grants us, for the first time with this particular game, the ability to build an experience designed to be enjoyed on the bus, or laid back on the sofa, or for those sneaky 10-minute distractions under the desk while your boss calls this week's Important Meeting," Oddworld executive producer Bennie Terry said in a PlayStation Blog post.

Terry went on to say New 'n' Tasty's PS Vita edition is "very much" the same as the previously released versions. But at the same time, it's a "refined, specially adapted version of the game that plays to the strengths of the mobile format," Terry explained.

"We've also worked tirelessly to ensure that the visual experience on PS Vita matches up as closely as it can with the other versions," Terry added. "We've made the game look a little grittier, gone is the bloom and glow leaving an aesthetic that closer resembles the 1997 classic, while tweaking every single area in the game to suit the platform."

New 'n' Tasty on PS Vita also includes Trophies. To unlock the Platinum, you'll be required to save every Mudokon in under three hours.
