Ori and the Blind Forest is Coming to the Switch, Will Have Achievements

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
Nintendo's Directs get more and more interesting for Xbox players. The gaming giant today announced that Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is coming to the Switch in September, and the developers confirmed a new achievement list is on the way too.


As this is a Nintendo trailer, the video naturally doesn't spend time revealing the game's Xbox Live capabilities — though it seemed likely given that the game is still being published by Xbox Game Studios. However Moon Studios' Game Director Thomas Mahler made the existence of a separate achievement list clear in a ResetEra post.

This marks another milestone in Xbox's growing friendliness with their counterparts at Nintendo, who seem quite happy for Xbox to throw a few achievement lists their way while the semi-portable device lacks an equivalent infrastructure. For achievement hunters, it's a great excuse to jump back into a highly-regarded game one last time before its highly anticipated sequel arrives. We doubt the final list will be any different to the Xbox One version of the game, but you never know.

The Nintendo Switch version of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will release on September 27th. It is expected to run at 1080p / 60fps docked, with a drop to 720p / 60fps in handheld mode.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch) achievements.
