Ori and The Will of the Wisps developers answered questions in a recent Reddit AMA regarding the possibility of a Switch port and Sequel.
Just a matter of time. It might sell more on the switch
Just like the first one...I personally wouldn't mind to see a Switch port. However, the reason why I couldn't play these kinds of games on that platform (outside of not owning one of course) is because often times, the Switch port of these games are cutdown versions of the original vision. I would much rather play the game as the devs intended without so many sacrifices hampering the experience. But yes, if it did go to Switch, more money generated would definitely the motivation behind it for Microsoft. "Lol you're the one that said it wouldn't ever release on the switch " Two things...first, I was actually in support of the Switch getting the first one...thought it was right up their alley. Also suggested Rare Replay as well...just makes since to me. However, if I did say that in a post, its probably because I was echoing Microsoft's own position on the matter. They came out and announced that they would be keeping their games on their own platforms going forward...this is why I said "IF it go to Switch..."
Lol you're the one that said it wouldn't ever release on the switch 😂😂
I hope they can port it. I love this game even more than the first. I can manage if they absolutely had to drop it to drop it to 30fps too. Not preferred, but worth a second buy imo. If it benefits the studio to port to Switch, I think they should be able to do it. MS has been pretty good about letting some things like this go to Switch. It's no different in my mind to something like Death Stranding going to PC. Console maker helps fund it, gets some exclusivity time, then let's it go make more money elsewhere.
Using Death Stranding is not a great example since Sony isn't letting it go to a competitor console. Microsoft shouldn't just lose all of their console exclusives since it means less people would be buying their console.
Meh, PC is as much or as little of a competitor to the Xb or PS4as Switch in my eyes. Remember, Sony themselves said that the PS4Pro was made in response to people looking at PC for higher fidelity. https://www.polygon.com/201... I forget the stats, but aren't the majority of Switch owners multi system owners? I don't see it as necessarily a direct competitor myself. 2nd party game, funded by console maker, exclusive for some time, goes to other platform later, but not their main competitor in the High end console market. Describes DS and Ori pretty well, I think.
Microsoft or Sony don't see Nintendo as competition. Nintendo does their own thing and are successful that way. A Switch port of Ori and The Will of the Wisps wouldn't surprise me.
They really upped the graphical detail compared to the first. It's a really lovely game. There was a moment early on when we're ascending up a snowy part, and the way the light shines through the trees during that scene was one of the prettier moments I've had from the One X.
So no and no then, with a hint of a "so you're telling me I've got a chance" clause.
