Ori and the Will of the Wisps is coming to the Nintendo Switch today

Last year, Nintendo and Moon Studios surprised fans with the release of Ori and the Blind Forest, previously a console exclusive on Xbox, for the Nintendo Switch. Earlier this year, the title got a sequel on Xbox One and PC, Ori and the Will of Wisps. Today, during the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase Presentation, it was revealed that the game is coming to the hybrid as well.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a platforming game, and it iterates on its predecessor in many ways, with richer environments and more things to do. You can check out our impressions of the PC version of the game in our review, which scored it at a 9 out of 10.

The Switch release will allow players to take the game with them on the go, though another way to do that would be through cloud streaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The game is available today, giving it a much shorter amount of time between the original release and Switch version compared to the first game in the series.

During the Nintendo Direct, a collector's edition was also revealed, which is coming to the Switch as well as Xbox and PC. The collector's edition includes physical copies of both games in the series, as well as a stained glass-style art piece, a sketchbook, collectible art cards, and more, all in a glow-in-the-dark display box. Regardless of which platform you go for, this edition will cost you a hefty $149.99.
