Alongside Halo 5: Guardians andRise of the Tomb Raider, the Xbox One played host to a smaller but no less special console exclusive last year: Ori and the Blind Forest. The 2D platformer won a bucketload of awards and high praise from the press for its tight controls and gorgeous art style. The game was also made available on PC and now, a month after the Definitive Edition's arrival on Xbox One, Microsoft is prepping a similar release for the Windows crowd. The updated version arrives on April 27th, adding new areas, music, story elements and abilities to the original game.

The revamped Ori will cost $19.99, however owners of the original version can upgrade to the Definitive Edition for $4.99. Conveniently, if you already own the Definitive Edition on Xbox One, all of your saves and progress should sync across to the PC build hassle-free. If you're one of the people that skipped this watercolor adventure last year, now is a pretty good time to pick up a controller and see what the fuss was all about. To whet your appetite, be sure to check out the game's spectacular soundtrack.
