Child of Light, Ubisoft’s gorgeous JRPG built using the UbiArt engine that previously powered Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, released last month on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and Steam; now, it will also be getting a release on Sony’s PlayStation Vita, Ubisoft has announced, on July 2nd.
On the same day, the Vita will also get a retail Complete Edition, that will feature the game, in addition to extra content, such as a bonus quest, a new character and a pack of collectibles.
Child of Light is a gorgeous throwback to the past, as it channels the golden age of Japanese role playing games on the SNES and creates a wonderfully compelling and charming modern role playing adventure. We at GamingBolt loved it, and it will probably be an even better fit for Sony’s handheld.
Child of Light is just the first in a line of innovative and imaginative small scale interesting side projects Ubisoft is creating using the UbiArt engine- coming up next is Valiant Hearts, a charming, striking World War I video game that uses the UbiArt powered visuals to great effect.
