Ori and the Will of the Wisps is looking like a much more enticing prospect after another trailer reveal. As part of the Xbox presentation at E3 2019, Ori and the Will of the Wisps showed off another look at what players can have in store - as well as confirming a release date.
Moon Studios has been a go-to developer for Microsoft when it comes to artistic platformers. Metroidvania title Ori and the Blind Forest proved extremely popular when it released in 2015, earning rave reviews and plenty of awards for its wonderful art direction. As such, it was never much of a surprise to learn that a sequel would be developed.
That sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, has now been shown off in detail at E3 2019. Although bits and pieces about the game have trickled out since its announcement, such as a second trailer at last year's E3, this provides a much better look at how Ori and the Will of the Wisps is going to handle, as well as confirming a release date of February 11, 2020. The trailer in question can be seen right here.
The trailer shows off a little more of the magical world of Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Once again the game is looking beautiful, with loads of great color and a truly unique feel to it all. Should the final game have the same level of quality then Ori and the Will of the Wisps should be an extremely pretty game to play through.
That said, the trailer also showcases just how brutal the world of Ori and the Will of the Wisps can be. Although there are some moments of calm, the core element of the trailer shows off some pretty intense battles with frightening enemies. As such, players will be hoping that Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be a gripping experience.
Perhaps the biggest news from the trailer is that the game finally has a release date. Ori and the Will of the Wisps has been on the cards for some time, and now players know that they can pick it up on February 11, a little later than some fans of the original may have expected.
