I played the excellent demo for the Nintendo Switch release of Ori and the Blind Forest (from Moon Studios) and it brought me to tears and then completely confirmed that I would be buying the title when it’s released on September 27th. This is your friendly reminder that the game will be available and that it is so good that Microsoft Studios and Nintendo made it happen to bring the game to Switch. Here’s hoping we get the sequel, Will of the Wisps, as well! Check out the official trailer for Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition! You can pre-order it here at the Nintendo E-shop!
