Ori and the Blind Forest: the Switch version will have improved animations

Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition prepares for its debut on Nintendo Switch and although the content is largely identical to that of the versions already available on other platforms, the developer Moon Studios has made some notable graphic improvements.

In fact, when Ori and the Blind Forest was first published, the game’s animations stopped at 30 frames per second. The version of Switch will be updated instead at 60 FPS, all thanks to the continuous improvements that Moon Studios has managed to make to the game engine. The game’s director, Thomas Mahler, speaking about the performance of Ori and the Blind Forest on Switch, said: “Keep in mind that we have been working on our engine for a good 10 years and that we have analyzed all the versions afterward. Many of the optimizations we have done for Ori and the Will of the Wisps ended up in the final version of Blind Forest for Switch, so it was a nice side effect. Another thing that is not immediately noticed is that the animations of Ori were realized at 30 FPS on Xbox One and PC but for Switch, we were able to improve to 60 FPS, so technically Ori is even more advanced on Switch than the others “platforms.

We remind you that the Ori and the Blind Forest demo for the large N hybrid console is already available on Nintendo eShop. The full version will be released on Friday 27 September on Nintendo Switch.
