Recently, the director on Ori and The Blind Forest shared that the upcoming Definitive Edition of the game releasing on Switch will feature 60 FPS animations which will be an upgrade over the original 30 FPS animations featured on the Xbox One version.
Check out what he shared below:
Keep in mind that we’ve been working with our engine for a good 10 years now and went through multiple releases and a sequel now. A lot of the optimizations we did for Will of the Wisps ended up in the Blind Forest version for Switch, so that was a nice side-effect.
Another thing people maybe don’t notice immediately is that Ori’s sprites were animated at 30fps on Xbox/PC, but for Switch we were actually able to update the animations to 60fps due to all the optimizations, so technically Ori actually even animates a bit smoother on Switch than on the other platforms.
