At the end of today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo and Moon Studios have confirmed that Ori and the Will of the Wisps will officially arrive starting today also on Nintendo Switch.
Released last March on Xbox platforms under the protection of the giant Microsoft, the Metroidvania title puts you in the shoes of little Ori in a moving and evocative journey that winks at the old school platformers in two dimensions and that makes you live a dedicated journey to love, family and soundtracks to remember.
Available from today, the game also arrives in pre-order with a special Collector’s Edition: inside you will find a copy of the game in a special box, accompanied by fine illustrations signed by the artists of Moon Studios.
Below, you can see the official announcement trailer.
