How Long Does It Take To Beat Ori And The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition?

Ori and the Blind Forest, the stunning action platformer from Moon Studios, released in 2015 for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows to critical acclaim. A Definitive Edition followed a year later, introducing additional content, including: new areas, new secrets, new abilities, more story sequences, multiple difficulty modes, and full backtracking support. With so many features and the release of the Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch on the horizon, you might be wondering: just how long does it take to beat the game?

According to the website How Long to Beat, it will take you between 8.5-12 hours to finish Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition.
