Exactly a year after its original release, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will release for Xbox One and PC on March 11.
One of our top 5 Single Player games currently on Xbox One, Ori and the Blind Forest is a metroidvania-style emotional platformer from Moon Studios that won the hearts of many players the world over. The Definitive Edition will be available for purchase as a whole new product or as an update to your original purchase.
Additions to the game will include various new difficulties, both harder and easier, including a crazy “one-life mode” for what can already be considered a grueling challenge of an adventure. Ori will also gain a new upgradeable ability that eventually evolves into a grenade-like attack. A theater mode will be introduced for players to re-watch cut-scenes as well as browse concept art and trailers.
Perhaps most exciting though for veteran players is a whole new section of the game amongst the Black Root Burrows that adds an extra layer of lore to Ori’s Guardian, Naru. The large and loveable being appears briefly in the vanilla game, so fans can look forward to discovering a lot more information on the mother character.
No price has been announced as yet for the definitive adventure, but players that already own a copy of Ori and the Blind Forest are promised “a very comfortable price” to pay to upgrade.
