I will evangelise the magnificence of Ori and the Blind Forest til my dying breath. Switch owners are in for a treat - and I urge you to buy the soundtrack while you're waiting.

Hoping for a physical release. I know the Switch version of Cuphead is supposed to be getting one whenever the DLC is out, so maybe Ori can get one too.

I'm totally late to knowing this was happening, but are both Ori and Cuphead MS-owned ips? Or are they just the publisher?

This will never run in native res and will get a huge graphically drop, but my girlfriend flips out about it because she's a gigantic fan, so we will buy it anyway.

But please have a physical version.

Is this the first game on Switch published by Xbox Game Studios?
Cuphead is published by Stuido MDHR and I think Minecraft is published by Mojang? Maybe I'm wrong on the second one. Still, this is the first actual first party game to cross over. Still looker gorgeous btw

Why do you have to release this game in the same month as: Astral Chain (basically), Daemon x Machina, Links Awakening, DQ XI .... and a day after Blasphemous. ._.

Maybe the best game I have played in the last two years. Certainly up there with Celeste and Cuphead.
