Ori and the Will of the Wisps, the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Ori and the Blind Forest game from Moon Studios, is launching on the Nintendo Switch today. The Xbox Game Studios title was released on Xbox One and PC back in March and received even better reviews than its predecessor, which was also released on the Nintendo Switch last year.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the second title from indie dev Moon Studios, and it’s a challenging metroidvania game with gorgeous hand-painted artwork that are rarely seen in video games these days. The game is also more demanding than its predecessor, but the good news is that the Nintendo Switch port will run at 60FPS, just like on Xbox One X. “We optimized the hell out of it,” the developers said on Twitter today.
It’s interesting to see more and more Xbox Game Studios titles and high-profile Xbox exclusives launching on the Nintendo Switch. Cuphead was another big Xbox game that launched on the Switch last year, complete with an Xbox Live integration. Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be priced at $29.99 on the Nintendo eShop, and a $149.99 Collectors Edition will also be available with a stained glass style art piece, a collectible art card set, and more.
