Retail version of “Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition” will be on store shelves globally on June 14, thanks to distributor Nordic Games and their partnership with publisher Microsoft Studios and developer Moon Studios.
The game’s boxed version will be based on the Steam version and will come in two editions: a standard edition for $19.99 and a limited edition for $29.99. Both versions will come with the game DVD and a quickstart guide, but the limited edition will be packaged with a steelbox. Additionally, the limited edition will also come with two double-sided A3 posters (compared to the standard edition’s one A3 poster), as well a soundtrack CD and two postcards.
Meanwhile, US players who prefer to play “Ori” on Xbox One will also be able to buy a retail version of the game for $19.99 on the same day. There will be no limited editions for this version and is only available in the US.
According to Nordic Games’ Reinhard Pollice, the company has received “many mails, tweets, and requests from fans asking for a boxed retail release.” Pollice is the Business and Product Development Director for Nordic Games.
“Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition” was first released digitally on March 11 of this year on the Xbox Store and April 27 for Steam. Aside from the original game, the definitive edition also comes with new content, including new areas, abilities, story sequences, and much more.
