Ori: The Collection features Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Ori and the Will of the Wisps on a single cartridge for Nintendo Switch, as well as both award-winning soundtracks and six collectible art cards. Ori: The Collection comes from iam8bit, Moon Studios and Xbox Game Studios, with global distribution from partner Skybound Games.  

The Ori franchise first launched in March of 2015 with the release of Ori and the Blind Forest. The debut title received overwhelming praise, garnering over 50 awards and nominations, including Best Art  Direction from The Game Awards, the BAFTA Games Award for Artistic Achievement, DICE Awards for  Outstanding Achievement in Original Composition, Art Direction and Animation.  

Ori and the Will of the Wisps launched in March 2020 with Xbox Game Pass, and was met with similar admiration, nominated for several awards from the 2021 Game Developer’s Choice Awards, BAFTA  Game Awards, D.I.C.E. Awards, SXSW Gaming Awards, as well as the Golden Joystick Award. The title  was dubbed a Metacritic Must-Play title at launch, and received overwhelmingly positive reviews from  media and fans alike, with GamesRadar+ calling it “one of the best platformers ever made, and... an easy  front-runner for game of the year.”  

ABOUT THE ORI SERIES 

Developed by Moon Studios, Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps are beautiful hand-drawn adventures about a young spirit destined for heroics, featuring tightly crafted platforming action and deeply emotional storytelling.  

Previously only available physically on Xbox One, iam8bit and Moon Studios have partnered with Skybound Games to distribute physical editions for both titles on Nintendo Switch. This launch also includes a special Collector’s Edition only available on  iam8bit.com that includes both titles, a premium display box, collectible art cards from the series, complete soundtracks from  both titles and much more 

About iam8bit 

Founded in 2005, iam8bit is a creative production emporium that has quietly redefined the entertainment industry, time and time again. Collaborating with a plethora of partners and narrative-busting IPs, iam8bit punctuates the importance of engaging with fans directly. By creating the videogame industry's very first community events, the company injected the idea of experiential immersion into game and film marketing (back when it was simply known as "theatre"). iam8bit also played a  crucial role in the vinyl renaissance, minting its first record in 2010, and is the industry leader in premium physical editions of top-tier games. In 2020, iam8bit evolved into financing and publishing games, soup-to-nuts, with several yet-to-be-announced  PC, console and tabletop games on the horizon. The company is based in Los Angeles and co-owned by Jon M. Gibson and  Amanda White. Visit iam8bit.com and follow iam8bit on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
