Almost surprisingly, exactly one month ago the arrival of the once exclusive game of Microsoft, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition was confirmed for the Nintendo Switch.
The debut date is approaching and if you have never played it and want to know how it plays, you should know that you will have the opportunity to try a demo.
Nintendo reported that all Switch users will be able to try Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition, thanks to a demo that will reach the Nintendo eShop worldwide. If you want to try the demo as soon as it is available, you should know that you can do it from today September 20. Just keep your eyes open on the eShop!
So, if you want to download this demo, it will only be necessary to enter the Nintendo eShop and search for it, either in the featured games section or, if it does not appear, do it manually in the search section.
It is important to mention that the version that will arrive on Nintendo Switch will be the Definitive Edition, this means that you can find additional content with respect to the original version, such as new areas, skills, story sequences, an expanded soundtrack and multiple difficulty options.
Many players had some doubts about the performance that Ori and the Blind Forest will have on the Nintendo console. Fortunately, Moon Studios already spoke briefly about the subject.
Thomas Mahler, executive manager of the studio and director of Ori and the Blind Forest, revealed in ResetEra that the port will arrive very well optimized. The creative also commented that this port will be a great experience.
Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will run at 1080p and 60 fps when your Nintendo Switch is docked. As for the portable mode, they will keep the frame rate per second at 60; only the resolution will be adjusted to 720p.
Mahler emphasized that the game will look on Switch just like it did on the Xbox One and PC versions.
In an interview, the brand’s general game marketing manager Aaron Greenberg explained that it was Moon Studios, the game’s developer, who had the initial desire to bring the indie to Nintendo Switch.
Later, after Microsoft analyzed and realized that a port for the hybrid console made sense, the company gave the green light for the development of the version for the Nintendo Switch.
Ori is made by Moon Studios, which is an independent and external studio. They approached us with the desire to bring the original Ori to Nintendo Switch. We thought it made sense and we were happy to work with them to allow them to take the game to Switch. We understand your desire to take it to Switch and, in this particular case, we were happy to support you. And I think it makes sense for the original Ori.
It is expected that Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will debut on 27 September in Nintendo Switch. The game is also available on Xbox One and PC.
