"We hope that all of you will be pleased with what we've put together for this retail release of Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition," he added. "We can't wait to finally see Ori and the Blind Forest on shelves and we once again want to thank all of our fans and everyone who supported Moon and Ori over the last few years--we're deeply humbled and appreciative, thank you so much!"

Ori and the Blind Forest was ranked by GameSpot as the seventh best game overall in 2015.

GameSpot's 9/10 Ori and the Blind Forest review was glowing, with critic Kevin VanOrd concluding: "It's important not to mistake Ori and the Blind Forest for being simply beautiful. It certainly is--but it is also unceasingly clever. It consistently surprises you with new tricks: gravitational divergences, new ways to move through its spaces, and carefully designed levels that require you to think quickly and respond."

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
