Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition

Moon Studios has shared more information about the upcoming Switch version of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition. The latest details cover a couple of technical aspects, confirm Xbox Live achievements, and more.

Here’s the full roundup:

At PAX West 2019, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition is playable on Switch for the first time. Take a look at some footage below.

Hello, my Chocobos and Cactuars! This week on NEP, we’ve got the simultaneous worst and best episode yet! We’ve got Jared of Avalanche Reviews guesting in, but Galen’s mic crapped out once or twice, so his commentary is a little light in a few spots.

But Jared is here to get super nerdy with us about upscaling output video on retro consoles, as all three of us bond over Resident Evil and the best boys of YouTube. In particular, Jared talks about getting the best picture possible out of the SNES, N64 and GCN consoles; the Framemeister; and technical nonsense of video and retro graphics explained in easy-to-understand detail.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

After plenty of speculation, Ori and the Blind Forest was finally announced for Switch during today’s Indie World Showcase. Xbox has now shared some tidbits about the game from a technical perspective.

When docked, Ori and the Blind Forest will run at 1080p. That should adjust to 720p in portable mode. As far as frame rate is concerned, it’ll run at 60 FPS.
