Metroid Fan Project Creator Now Working on Ori Sequel With Moon Studios (VIDEO)
Despite the fan-made Metroid game Another Metroid 2 Remake getting cancelled by Nintendo, some good may have come out of it. Not only does it help clear a path for Nintendo’s official Metroid: Samus Returns sequel, but it also put Milton Guasti – the creator of AM2R – on a road to greater things. Guasti recently announced via AM2R‘s Twitter that he has been hired by Moon Studios, the developer behind the cult classic Ori and the Blind Forest. Guasti and the rest of the team are currently working on the upcoming Ori sequel titled Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
It's a special day for another reason. I'm now part of Moon Studios, I'll be working on level design for Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Originally announced during Microsoft’s E3 2017 showcase, fans of Ori and the Blind Forest went crazy when it was revealed that a sequel was on its way. The hype is certainly infectious as many of the fans following Guasti on Twitter were excited to hear that he would be bringing his talents to the subsequent installment of what is such a beloved game. As mentioned in the Tweet, Guasti will be working on level design for the Ori sequel:
Ori is one of the many games I was able to enjoy lately. One can see the love and attention to detail that went into its design. I feel like I’ll be right at home working with this team. It’s a pretty huge change in my life, since it’s a full time job, but dreams are there to be chased. My family supports this decision and it could be the beginning of a new career.”
There currently isn’t much information available on Ori and the Will of the Wisps aside from the reveal trailer above. Though it does confirm that the game will be available on PC and Xbox One, the only information withheld was the release date. That said, if the video is any indication, the Ori sequel will feature more of the emotionally charged story and beautifully crafted environments that helped set the original game apart from the rest. With Guasti working on the game’s level design, fans can look forward to a worthy follow-up.
