Itching for a 2D Metroidvania platformer with lush whimsical graphics and a stellar soundtrack? Then you should check out Ori and the Blind Forest, available now for Xbox One and PC. And then look forward to the sequel.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps has recently gone gold according to developer Moon Studios’ tweet, meaning that it’s ready to be shipped on its 11th March release date and will cost you US$30.

You can either buy the physical/digital version of the game or play it via Xbox Game Pass. And yes, you can also pre-order the rather beautiful-looking Collector’s Edition if you prefer something tangible in your hands and desk.
The Collector’s edition features the game, its piano arrangement and original soundtrack in CD form and MP3 download form, a steelbook, premium packaging, and an art book.
Of course, it would be nice if Xbox starts selling its games locally in Southeast Asia outside of Singapore instead of relying on grey market retailers. For now, you may have to pay a little extra to ship this bad boy to your home.
