Microsoft has announced Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a sequel to the first, charming game.
A trailer shown during today's E3 press conference revealed the return of Ori in another stylish-looking adventure.
It's due in 2019 and will come to Xbox One X enhanced.
Milton Guasti, creator of canned Metroid fan project AM2R, has been snapped up by Ori and the Blind Forest developer Moon Studios.
AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) was released last year - exactly a year ago yesterday - to a positive response from Metroid fans.
A full remake of Nintendo's 1991 Game Boy title Metroid 2, AM2R quickly caught the attention of Nintendo lawyers. Within a day, Guasti had received a cease-and-desist letter, and the project was shut down.
During its E3 2017 media briefing, Microsoft faced pressure to convince the gaming public to fork out its hard-earned cash - £449 in the UK to be exact - on an Xbox One X, née Project Scorpio. With the specs out of the way, it was all about the games. And so the games came - 42, 22 of which with rather vague "Xbox console exclusivity" attached. But while we saw some lovely little games as part of a different side of Microsoft (The Last Night, Artful Escape and Ori 2 spring to mind), where were the big first-party exclusive new game announcements? You know, the kind of announcement that gets early adopters fumbling over themselves to pre-order? There weren't any.
