[Update: Definitive Edition Confirmed] Ori and the Blind Forest Coming To Nintendo Switch In September
Update: Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition has been confirmed to release on Nintendo Switch on September 27, as announced by the publisher Microsoft and developer Moon Studios.
Original: Nintendo would confirm today, during the broadcast of its Indie World today at 6am PT / 9am ET, that the game Ori and the Blind Forest will be coming to Nintendo Switch. The analyst Daniel Ahmad hinted at the game, but Sabi – a well-known source of leaks – talks about a video that dates this version: September 27.
In the Twitter message, he would have also confirmed the other two games that Ahmad talked about: Hotline Miami Collection and Superhot, both with immediate availability after 20-minute Indie World.
Ori and the Blind Forest and Cuphead for the Nintendo Switch console were leaked at the beginning of the year, as part of Microsoft’s testing of a development API and, perhaps, in the future launching its service of Xbox Game Pass subscription.
The rumors of the past few days have claimed that a new Microsoft title would be announced at Nintendo’s indie presentation, following in the footsteps of Cuphead and Super Lucky’s Tale, and an announcement for Ori and the Blind Forest would be in line with rumors.
All that remains is to follow Nintendo’s Indie World to learn more about it. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comments below.
We're going to see another Microsoft / Xbox first game at the IndieWorld Direct on Monday.
So far we've had Minecraft, Cuphead and Super Lucky's Tale that have been Xbox exclusives come to Switch.
If you've been following rumors/leaks you can probably guess this one. https://t.co/hXrDJb1XxW

Vr Plant is saying Ori on September 27th for the Switch and Hotline Miami Collection + Superhot shadow drop, in that new video… Sounds pretty hype!
In other news — there's a lot more me and Papagenos and looking into that isn't related to Nintendo's Indie World.
