Microsoft and Moon Studios announced Ori and the Blind Forest for Xbox One and PC during its E3 press conference this morning.
Described as a “coming of age tale” in a “new direction,” the game tells the story of Ori, a Guardian Spirit, who was cast away from his home at birth. He grows up with his ‘stepmother’ Naru, and lives happily with her until his forest suddenly decays. After that, Ori has to venture out and find out more about himself. It is a story about “responsibility and making sacrifices for the ones we love.”
The puzzle platformer will run at 60 frames per second in 1080p, and feature a wide-open world with “Metroidvania”-style gameplay.
The game is due out this fall.
