The beloved indie classic is getting a sequel soon; Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a beautifully-rendered platformer with Metroidvania elements. Though the game has already been confirmed for Xbox and PC, we're here to work out if Ori and the Will of the Wisps is getting a Nintendo Switch release.
Is Ori and the Will of the Wisps Getting a Switch Release?
At the time of writing the answer is no, though we can't be certain that's going to be permanent going forward. The original game was also first available on the PC and Xbox, before getting a Switch port - though that was four years later. It's entirely possible that this new game will follow the same trend, especially if it seems like the demand for a Switch release is substantial enough.
When Will Ori and the Will of the Wisps Be Out on Switch?
Again, this is highly speculative, but we'd be surprised if the gap was another four years. Ori 2 is released on PC and Xbox One on March 11 2020, but it's more likely that it'll be a shorter gap this time before the Switch port, especially considering there's a precedent in play. We suspect that it's more likely to be one or two years at most, Microsoft making sure that it's tapped the game for all the exclusive purchases before allowing it on other platforms. However, this would have to be very financially advantageous, as Microsoft has said it has no plans to bring exclusives to other consoles.
Still, if you want to know more about the upcoming Ori game, you can find all the details we have so far right here. Or if you want to know what's going on with the game's release date, we have an explanation of that too.
