Xbox ANZ Created Real Bonsai Trees For Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, Here's How To Win One

The Spirit tree from Ori comes to life.


The Xbox ANZ team is at it again with another unique promotion for one of its upcoming games. The company has created 20 limited-edition bonsai trees to mark the launch of Ori and the Will of the Wisps later this month. The trees are meant to capture the essence of the "Spirit" trees from the Ori franchise--and they look pretty stunning.

"These decade old, real Bonsai trees have been designed to resemble the Spirit Tree, from the glowing ethereal lights in the delicate branches, to the moss-covered ground where the handcrafted mini Ori figurine stands," Xbox ANZ said in a statement. "The Bonsais will emulate the energy of the Spirit Trees, helping guide fans through the game from the comfort of their living rooms."

Xbox ANZ created 20 of the Spirit trees, and fans in Australia can visit the Xbox ANZ Facebook page to find out how to win one. Microsoft is also donating to the Greening Australia charity as part of its Ori campaign. Greening Australia is a non-profit group that raises money and awareness to restore and protect Australia's local vegetation, an important issue, especially following the disastrous bushfires that ripped through the country earlier this year.

"It is no secret that Xbox fans are passionate about the enchanting universe of Ori, so we wanted to celebrate the launch of Ori and the Will of the Wisps by bringing the Spirit Tree right into Australian living rooms," Xbox ANZ boss Dan Johnson said.

Previously, Xbox ANZ led the campaigns for other unique promotional items like a greaseproof Xbox controller and the Xbox-branded bodywash. And who could forget the extra-comfy Xbox Onesie.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps launches on March 11 for Xbox One and PC. It's also part of the Xbox Game Pass program, so subscribers can get it at no extra cost.
