Microsoft recently registered a trademark for a certain game titled Ori and the Blind Forest. It was shown at their press conference today and it looks absolutely gorgeous.
At a glance, it looks like a 2D side-scrolling platformer where you take control of a beast (a kind-hearted one, I’m assuming) and you’re accompanied by his little, and considerably more adorable beast friend. It reminds me a lot of Ubisoft’s Child of Light that released earlier this year because of its water-color art design and the whimsical music that plays in the trailer.
Ori and the Blind Forest looks like it’s probably going to be a platforming game instead of an RPG, though, and it will be available exclusively on the XBOX. We’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.
