Critically beloved sequel Ori and the Will of the Wisps is heading to Nintendo Switch later today, along with a number of other titles. 

Announced during Nintendo’s Mini Direct presentation, the sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest is now officially coming to the Switch following its release on Xbox One earlier this year. 

If you’re unfamiliar, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a Metroidvania-style platformer with stunning visuals and a surprisingly moving story - which earned a wealth of praise from critics.

A special collector’s edition was also announced for Switch and Xbox One, which features both games, a fancy display box, collectible art, and a field guide. It’s priced at $149.99 from iam8bit.com.

It also marks the third former Xbox exclusive to head to Switch, following Ori and the Blind Forest and Cuphead last year. 

It isn't the only title heading to Switch today, with Hades also arriving on the platform - while two new Monster Hunter titles are hitting the Switch next year.
