Microsoft Lifts The Lid On Ethereal Platformer Ori And The Blind Forest


Cutting through the maelstrom of triple-A titles during Microsoft’s E3 conference this morning was the next project from Moon Studios, Ori and the Blind Forest.

Channeling the visual aesthetic of Studio Ghibli productions such as My Neighbour Totoro, the gorgeous indie platformer was confirmed as an Xbox One exclusive, and will launch for Microsoft’s flagship console this coming fall.

From the footage released, Ori and the Blind Forest appears to be an analog to Ubisoft PlayStation’s exclusive Child of Light, and even features an orb-like companion that will aid you in your quest through Moon Studios’ atmospheric nether realm.

As expected, Microsoft only teased the trailer below and not much is known about the specific gameplay of Moon Studios latest title; although, you would expect it to be tethered to the RPG genre, replete with upgrade systems and additional quests to partake in.

Ori and the Blind Forest will venture onto Xbox One exclusively this fall.
