Announced earlier today during the latest Nintendo Direct Mini, the cute Metroidvania platformer Ori and The Will of The Wisps is coming to the Nintendo Switch later today.

Originally released earlier this year on Xbox One and PC, Ori and The Will of The Wisps is the sequel to 2015's Ori and The Blind Forest. Both games were developed by Moon Studios and published by Microsoft Games. Blind Forest was also released on Switch back in 2019.

“Cute Metroidvania platformer?”

That’s kind of a dismissive description. If you play through Ori WotW “cute” isn’t really an accurate description. It can be dark as hell and also utterly gut wrenching at times.

I’d go as far to say it’s probably in my top 10 games of all time and should easily be a contender for GOTY 2020.
