Ori and the Will of the Wisps Is Out Now

It will never stop being weird seeing Xbox games on a Nintendo console. Weird in a good way, mind, as any chance to play a game as exceptionally fun and engaging as Ori and the Will of the Wisps is one worth having on any Nintendo platform. Thankfully, Will of the Wisps has joined its predecessor in the Nintendo eShop and is available right now to download.

The sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, Will of the Wisps is another rigorous Metroidvania-style game that expands upon the original’s gorgeous visuals and tight platforming gameplay. For those who would like to own a physical copy of each of these two games, iam8bit is producing a splendorous Collector’s Edition. Here’s what’s in the box:

The whole shebang is retailing for $149.99 and can be preordered here, with a shipping window of December 2020. It’s a great time to be a fan of this series; are you excited to play Will of the Wisps on your Switch? Will you be picking up this Collector’s Edition? Tell us below and on social media!
