Nintendo Indie World: Ori And The Blind Forest Comes To Switch, And More

Nintendo's Indie World stream just wrapped up, giving us a look at a lot of the Nintendo Switch indie games we can look forward to in the next few months. And there's some really big news coming out of this one: the Nintendo Switch is getting yet another Xbox One console exclusive.


Ori and the Blind Forest was the last game shown during Indie World, and it's no surprise. Ori always seemed like a great fit for Switch, but due to the game being published by Microsoft, it felt like the odds of seeing it come to Nintendo's platform were slim to none.

We live in a different time now; one where Microsoft is more open to letting its console exclusives go cross-platform. Ori follows Cuphead and Super Lucky's Tale in this regard, and we'll hopefully see more as time goes on. Can we get a little Halo?

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition comes to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27, 2019.

Also of note: two indies are releasing on Nintendo Switch today. Players can pick up Superhot and Hotline Miami Collection from the eShop right now.
