Today Ubisoft announced some details on their upcoming game Child of Light, a digital only JRPG-inspired game that will be released at some stage during 2014.
Child of Light is being created using Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, which frankly it feels like they’re currently underusing, and should be taking advantage of it more for bringing their fantastic concept art to life.
Child of Light is being described as a reimagining of fairytales, presenting players with an epic adventure in the magical world of Lemuria. The game as you can tell from the trailer features turn based combat, reminiscent from the days of classic JRPGs. You play Aurora, a child who was sadly stolen from her home. However she’s now trying her best to return, but on the way has to bring back the sun, moon and stars which have been kidnapped by the Queen of the Night. You also have a companion in the game called Igniculus which can be controlled by another player.
The game looks gorgeous and I cannot wait to see some more on it, as from taking a different approach artistically I have a feeling that maybe I can step back into my JRPG shoes and give this one a go. Child of Light is going to be released on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii U, Windows, Xbox One and Playstation 4 during 2014.
