Find the Definitive Edition on PC in stores next month

Ori and the Blind Forest is coming to stores on June 14, thanks to publisher Nordic Games. In a press release, the company said it was working with developer Moon Studios and Microsoft, which originally published the game, on a boxed version of the Windows PC game.

"Since we released Ori and the Blind Forest, we've received many mails, tweets and requests from fans asking for a boxed retail release, so we're extremely pleased to finally make everyone's wish come true," CEO of Moon Studios Thomas Mahler said about the upcoming boxed sets.

The retail versions will include the Definitive Edition of the game, which Microsoft recently released on PC and Xbox One. It comes with extra content, like new moves, difficulty options, fast travel and even more of the beautiful, cinematic cutscenes.

When it comes to stores next month, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will be available in two editions: a $19.99 Standard Edition, which includes the game and a poster; and a $29.99 Limited Edition, packed with two posters, two postcards, the original soundtrack and a steelbook case.
