Ori and the Will of the Wisps: 5 big changes that are coming to Ori 2

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is going to take everything you loved about the original – the emotional story, the devious environmental puzzles and the gigantic set pieces – and take them to a whole new level in what could be, one of the greatest Metroidvania games since Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

What is Metroidvania?

Metroidvania (a mash-up of Metroid and Castlevania) is a genre of 2D side-scrolling games that revolves around exploring new areas, gaining new skills, beating bosses and repeating until the credits roll. 

That being said, that’s an especially tough comparison to make considering how  good the last few years have been if you’re a Metroidvania fan: since Ori and the Blind Forest came out in 2015 on Xbox One, the genre has seen a renaissance that has inspired games like Hollow Knight, Dead Cells and, most recently, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.
