Ori and the Blind Forest was one of the first crossover games between the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, the other being Cuphead. Now, it seems that there’s a glimmer of hope that Ori and the Will of the Wisps may come to the Nintendo Switch. Nothing has been announced and there are only whispers at this point, but comments from Microsoft Studios’ Daniel Smith give a glimmer of hope, stating that, “We’re Switch fans and I love Nintendo Switch, but we don’t have anything to announce right now.”

“I think one of the big things for us is that everybody worked so hard on Blind Forest that we wanted as many people as possible to experience what we created. I think it’s exciting to just grow the family. Diehard gamers might have every console, and some gamers might only have one, so I thought it was a nice addition to add to a different pool of gamers who could enjoy the content we created.”

The fact that Smith didn’t outright deny a Switch version for Ori and the Will of the Wisps lends credence to the fact that they are at least thinking about bringing it over to the Nintendo Switch. They themselves admit that it expands the audience base and Blind Forest did very well on the Switch. Only time will tell, but things are rather optimistic at this point.
