Iam8bit, the specialist publisher of collector’s editions, is bringing Ori: The Collection to Nintendo Switch later this year.

Ori and the Blind Forest and its sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, are two of the best platform adventures of recent years. They’re up there with the likes of Hollow Knight and Dead Cells.

For 2D platformers they’re also surprisingly demanding, visually – Ori and the Will of the Wisps needs a GTX 950 on PC for its minimum settings – so it was even more pleasing/surprising when both games found their way onto Nintendo Switch and the ports weren’t rubbish.

Now, thanks to a collaboration between developer Moon Studios, original publisher Xbox Game Studios, and specialist publisher Iam8bit, both Ori games will be available on one cartridge for Nintendo Switch, as Ori: The Collection. Skybound Entertainment will be joining the party to handle distribution.

And because this is an Iam8bit release, you won’t just get both games for the cover price. You’ll also receive a (digital) copy of each game’s soundtrack and six collectable art cards.

It also goes without saying (but, somehow, we still need to say) that Ori: The Collection will actually include a Nintendo Switch cartridge, not just a download code.

This is the first time both Ori games have been available as a package on Nintendo Switch. Ori: The Collection will be priced at $49.95 US and will release on October 12, 2021.
