Ori and the Will of the Wisps: Hands-on impressions from E3 2018


Ori and the Will of the Wisps brings several features to Ori’s forest that fit well alongside familiar gameplay.

I teared up when I first saw Ori and the Will of the Wisps revealed at E3 2017, and I teared up again at E3 2018. Moon Studios’ masterpiece of a platformer was not only an emotional journey, but its Metroidvania adventure included some of the tightest, most enjoyable platforming I’ve ever played.

With the sequel, the studio is bringing back that same wonderful gameplay, but also is adding some new features that on their faces don’t seem to fit well with Ori. Side quests, NPCs with dialogue, and the removal of the old save system sound like they’d derail the adventure, but after going hands-on with the game at E3 2018, I’m convinced that Will of the Wisps can surpass Blind Forest both in beauty and fun.

One small favor
