Ubisoft brings its gorgeous experimental games to Nintendo’s hybrid.
Ubisoft has announced that its gorgeous, experimental UbiArt projects, the beautiful RPG Child of Light, and the surprisingly introspective game on the excesses of war, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, are both going to be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Both of these games were built using the gorgeous UbiArt engine Ubisoft had designed for Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, the latter of which is already on the Switch.
Given that Ubisoft has found success on the Switch with all of its initiatives so far, and that Rayman Legends is already on the platform, I imagine these smaller projects were an easy and obvious bunch to bring to the console. Given how utterly fantastic they are, too, I am sure no one will be complaining.
For now, we don’t know if there are any Switch-specific enhancements or features in either game. Generally speaking, Ubisoft’s ports to the system have been very straightforward, so I wouldn’t bank on it. Child of Light comes to Switch on October 11, and Valiant Hearts follows less than a month later on November 8.
