The Ori Collector’s Edition comes with both games including a personal case for each with reversible cover art. Additionally, there is a stained glass look art piece, art cards, a glow in the dark pin of Ku the Owl and Ori, a sketchbook zine revealing rare production art, a field guidebook, and a digital download code for each game’s soundtrack. The entire collection is store in a transforming display box which also glows in the dark. The Ori Collector’s Edition is available for $149.99 on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Iam8bit has collaborated with Microsoft numerous times in the past with giving both of the series titles the vinyl treatment. The Switch port of Will of the Wisps is also the company’s first time at publishing a digital title which was also done with the help of Microsoft.
There is currently no confirmation whether or not the bundle is for open pre-order so for those interested in purchasing it, I would not wait on it. The collection is set to ship sometime in December later this year. Both Ori and the Blind Forest as well as Will of the Wisps are fantastic platformers that are worth your time playing.
