Ori and the Will of the Wisps is getting a surprise launch on Nintendo Switch today.
Announced as part of the Nintendo Direct Mini held today, Ori and the Will of the Wisps – sequel to the beloved Ori and the Blind Forest – will be available today on Switch, just months after its debut on Xbox.
A physical collector’s edition, put together by iam8bit, will soon be available, which will contain both Ori games, packaged together with a stained glass art piece, field guide, sketchbook, art card set, and enamel pin in a transforming, glow-in-the-dark display box. The collection also comes with digital downloads for both soundtracks.
It should be noted that iam8bit will be offering this collector’s edition for all platforms Ori is available on – Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
When it released on Xbox One and PC in May, our Ori and the Will of the Wisps review praised the game, noting that developer Moon Studios had built on the previous game to create a heartfelt follow-up.
