We can’t get enough of Ubisoft’s Child of Light. Picture a 2D platformer created using the UbiArt Framework engine – which created those blissful visuals seen in Rayman Origins and Legends – which also features a role playing battle system in the vein of Grandia where you can interrupt your opponent’s moves. Sounds enticing? Check out the gameplay trailer above for more.
Interestingly, the team behind Far Cry 3 is working on Child of Light, which follows the tale of Aurora who’s been stolen from her house and must complete an epic quest to return the sun, moon and stars which the Queen of the Night is holding captive. She’ll be helped out by various allies and Igniculus, a firefly who guides. In case you’re wondering, yes, this is a coming of age story. And yes, it looks that good.
Child of Light will be releasing in 2014 for PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U. Stay tuned for more details.
