Ubisoft® has released a co-op trailer for Child of Light™, which launches on April 30, 2014. The turn-based RPG set in the magical world of Lemuria will be available for download for $14.99 on Microsoft Xbox LIVE for the Xbox® 360 and Xbox® One, the Sony PlayStation Network for the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4, the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U, and Steam for PC and is rated Everyone 10+. Child of Light is created by a small team of seasoned developers based in Ubisoft Montreal.
Child of Light has been developed on Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world. In Child of Light, the effect is that playing becomes akin to stepping into an interactive painting.
Child of Light is a reimagining of classic fairytales, inviting players on an epic adventure into the magical painted world of Lemuria. Players will uncover mysteries, participate in turn-by-turn combat inspired by classic JRPGs, and explore a mystical kingdom. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. Helped by her companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears, including dragons and other mystical creatures in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.
