Ori and the Blind Forest, the upcoming title for the Xbox One, has been delayed until 2015, according to a press release on the game's official website.

"While we're extremely excited for all of you to get your hands on Ori and the Blind Forest as soon as possible," Moon Studios posted on the game's official website, "we made the decision together with our partners at Microsoft Studios that we'll need just a little add a final layer of polish to--what we hope--will be an unforgettable gaming experience."

Moon Studios thanked all their fans for continued support.

Ori and the Blind Forest is described on its official website as a mix between Metroid and Castlevania. The development team stated that it's their goal to "recapture the magic of these games."

Game Informer was impressed when given a chance to demo the game. They stated that the game looks true to the games that inspired it.

"We were impressed with Ori's controls after our limited hands on time," Game Informer stated about the title.

"Platforming feels as tight and "pixel perfect" as any one of Nintendo's classic platforming franchises, and the Bash mechanic is easy to time and a lot of fun to pull off.

Ori's visual are also quite fluid, and the lush animation really helps bring the world do life."

Fans anticipating the game are going to wait a bit longer for the upcoming Xbox One exclusive.
