The fantastic Ori and the Will of the Wisps is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop today as part of a surprise announcement during the Nintendo Partner Direct. You will be pleased to know that the previously Xbox One console exclusive runs on the Nintendo Switch at a blinding 60fps in both handheld mode and in docked mode, which is clearly quite some achievement. The team at Moon Studios say that they basically “optimized the hell out of it.” You can also pre-order the luxury collectors edition which is due out December 2020.
That’s all I ask! Awesome!
Really surprising as well since it’s a mess on the XBOX – When it launched I bought it, played it for a few hours and quit because it was really inconsistent…
Yeah, and it was only 30FPS there. They’ve learned a lot apparently!
I find it funny when Microsoft said they weren’t going to do anymore ports to Switch… then this happens
I feel like we’ll see more Microsoft Ports if the next gen Switch is as powerful as the rumours suggest it is
Actually, I reckon we’d see less- it’s clear right now that Microsoft don’t see Nintendo as a serious competitor, but what if Nintendo evened up the playing field?
maybe they had to do an exception with Ori as its a better fit for that platform. I mean its not like Nintendo consoles are lacking in metroidvania games, but everything about Ori fits so perfectly well to the Switch and its so nice to have it on handheld mode.
OMG I SO WANT TO PLAY IT RIGHT NOWW!! but the timing is wrong for me I am gonna finish playing Mario 3D Collection first then gonna start this right after!
So… This game that would never be able to be ported to the Switch, which was to graphically powerful for the Switch, runs better on the Switch?
Got some wizards on that team I see. Looking forward to picking this up
Amazing game. My dream is if this studio make the next 2d Metroid game
TAKE MY MONEY!!!! THAT IS ONE HELL OF A INTRO AND SONG!!! ORI I THINK WILL BE MY LOVED 2D PLATFORM. I WANT IT.
IS THERE A PHYSICAL COPY? NO. THEN DIGITAL IT IS. THOUGH I PERFER .
Nintendo put a lot of time in this direct.
