Announced during Gamescom in August, the Definitive Edition will include new areas and game mechanics, and "potentially" new abilities, Moon Studios said at the time. It will be available for Xbox One, as well as PC through Steam and Windows 10.

GameSpot's 9/10 Ori and the Blind Forest review hailed it as a "rapturous platformer that is as fun as it is beautiful." Moon Studios has also talked about continuing the story further, potentially with a movie.

The game landed at No. 7 in GameSpot's overall 2015 Game of the Year countdown.
