At this year’s E3, Microsoft announced it’s sequel to 2015’s Ori and the Blind Forest: Ori and the Will of the Wisps. The trailer for Ori and the Will of the Wisps premiered on stage, with composer Gareth Coker on piano. With scarce expositional dialogue to carry the story’s narrative, Ori and the Blind Forest managed to convey a complete story through its exceptional art and music. Players anticipate the same breathtaking beauty in its sequel.
I AM CRYING YOU GUYS THIS GAME IS SO GORGEOUS.
Though we don’t see gameplay, the trailer gives us a feast for the eyes – devastatingly beautiful environments in a sea of oranges, greens, and violets, and Coker’s heart wrenching music. Ori and the Will of the Wisps seems to pick up where Blind Forest left off. At the end of the trailer, we see Ori comforting a lone owlet, gazing mournfully at two deceased owls in the distance.
My belief is that this owlet is hatchling from Kuro’s only surviving egg. As we know, Kuro perished at the end of Ori and the Blind Forest, and was the sole egg that Kuro didn’t lose.
