Ori and Will of the Wisps?

My son says Hollow Knight.

I have these, but have never played them.

Just looking for PS5. I have both Ori’s for Xbox, but wanted to see if something very similar for PS5.

What about Tales of Kenzera : ZAU? That's included with PS Plus Extra tier and seems pretty similar to me.

I donít think itís a good comparison. HK has very hard boss fights. The Ori games are almost 100% platforming. That being said, HK is definitely one of the best metroidvania games. For less difficult combat, check out the guacamele games. Theyíre stuffed with humor too.

In terms of styleÖ yeah, Hollow Knight seems like the closest youíll get.
In terms of hardcore platforming, Celeste is amazing, IMO. Perfect game. But itís 8-bit style so that can be a turnoff for people.

But as far as I know, there are no PS4/PS5
exclusive platformers that come close to these games. Everything mentioned in this thread are all multiplatform.

I'll tell ya...i tried all the games today and in the end went back to Ori. it is just so damn beautiful and fun. I mean, I have no idea where I'm going half the time and what the energy stones and crystals are for, but I'm having a damn fun time doing it. it just looks so good. the others were fine, mind you, don't get me wrong. exactly as described, but nothing looks and plays like Ori and knowing there is a sequel (which I have) next makes me kind of giddy. I just wish I could stick to one damn game.
