We all know how much Xbox boss Phil Spencer loves Nintendo and the games industry in general, so it's probably no surprise that Ori and the Will of the Wisps has just been announced for Nintendo Switch.
The critically-acclaimed Xbox first-party sequel has only been available on Xbox One and PC until now, but it's actually shadow-dropping on the Nintendo eShop for Switch owners later today.
It arrives six months after the game's original release back in March, which is much quicker than the couple of years it took for Ori and the Blind Forest to hit the platform, which eventually arrived in September 2019.
Happy to see the Ori sequel on Switch? Will you be picking it up? Give us your thoughts below.
Amazing! Sharing the love!
The best games Xbox made in the last few years is on the Switch! Reasons to own Xbox next gen = zero :3
Its about time that nintendo returns the favor, Zelda on Xbox would be nice =)
I'm sorry, but does this count as Xbox news?
Zelda on Xbox would not at all be a fair trade for this...
Doesn't hurt anyone. Microsoft is making money as will Nitendo and gamers get more choice. "Why buy an Xbox?" Some might ask...you don't have to, just get it if you want. Funny how it's actually all about the games at Xbox...the ones without any games if i recall hearing once or twice.
That's great! What a good game, glad more can try it
@Krzzystuff anyone who says Xbox has no games is just a troll, don't pay attention to them. That is a completely ridiculous narrative.
Reasons to listen to a troll like you = zero.
“crossgen is bad” 😭
“crossgen helds back” 😭🤮🤮
“PC gameplay” 🤣🤣🤣
Well guess what now u gotta pay for 70$ a pop DLC and upgrades.
DEAL WITH IT 🦄s 🤧
@Z3u5000 They're oddly quiet when Sony does it.
@IronMan30 @FraserG we are getting the collectors edition as well. So that’s news.
@mousieone that is a lot more relevant to this site, tbf.
@KelticDevil Confirmed: Xbox is now the console with the most games confirmed to be next-gen only console exclusives.
@IronMan30 yeah but we've fanboy's of our own. I just stay away from any related conversations on Twitter at this point. Seems people commenting there are just looking for a fight regardless of console preference.
@Z3u5000 Out of curiousity, I checked out the comment section and confirmed my frustration that it is a warzone.. I don't get it. Who cares? If you want a Playstation buy one. If you want an XBox, great. A Nintendo, cool beans. Why fight about it? Just play what you like and quit being an old potato.
@XBontendo A lot of people are trying to make this look like a fake war when it’s actually not. It’s only about calling spade a spade and exposing double standards of some.
Hopefully Rare Replay comes next.
@Grumblevolcano I hope not I’ve just bought an old Xbox one for that 😆
Looking at this list, I surely prefer Spider-Man, Demon’s Souls, Horizon, God of War 5 and FFXVI. Yes, even if some of them are cross gen. More games doesn’t mean more QUALITY games
This, THIS right here is why I love being part of the Xbox community, This community on this website amazes me, With how passionate and supporting theyre to what MS does, I agree totally, Let people play where they want to play. Whats the reaosn to own an Xbox? Because you have a company that cares, and tries, Hats off to you Ms, and Phil. I just love how this site is zero toxic, so big hats off to the site owner too.
LOL, I finally branch out off of Nintendo Life to the rest of the network.....and this is where I get my Nintendo news. Well played, Ant, well played.
This is great news. I thought for sure MS was going to bottle this stuff up for next gen, and the dev comments about how 60fps would be hard on Switch for Ori 2 made me think they were setting up to not bring the game. This is quite a surprise. The 4k patch is pretty and I have Ori 1 on Xbox, but personally, Ori is the kind of game I'd rather play on a handheld or not at all, and it sat idle on my X1 for years before I finally started playing the game on Switch. Still lining up for the bloodbath of preorder day for a SeX, but this game is clearly going to my Switch pile.
@playstation_king then get a Playstation, nobody's stopping you. Why pop in just to pee in our soup? You don't see me on PushSquare complaining about Spiderman, Horizon or GoW even though I don't care about them. Just because I don't like a thing doesn't mean you don't, same thing in reverse.
Very well said! 👍🏻
Thanks Keltic but honestly guys like you make Xbox what it is, I love this ste, I love being an Xbox gamer. We appriciate everything we are given, and are always content with what we get, I made the mistake of going to Push square, and You can die of the toxic fumes, Awful just awful, Im glad I am not part of that community.
I hear ya! I used to own a PlayStation (as a 2nd console) & I went to Push Square & it was just like you said. Very toxic community.
I only own an Xbox now & have no interest in a PlayStation. I’ve been an Xbox guy since the launch of the OG Xbox many years ago.
Glad to hear that you love the website! The guys running it do a great job!
I would love to see Master chief (Halo) and Samus (metroid) join forces as a colab.
