I was getting ready to relax for the evening just as Ubisoft emailed us and said that Child of Light, the turn-based RPG set in the magical world of Lemuria, will release digitally on the Vita on July 2nd and will also get a “complete” physical release. The game will cost £11.99 on PSN.

The game is a re-imagining of classic fairytales set against a backgrounds inspired by the watercolor artworks of The Golden Age of Illustration. Child of Light takes players on an extraordinary journey through the mystical world of Lemuria by putting them in the shoes of Aurora, a young princess who must win back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. A return to the classic JRPG, the game blends together platforming and turn-based combat along while providing a rich storyline, robust soundtrack and beautifully-rendered hand drawn art style.

The title has been received very well and is in a genre we could really appreciate more of on the Vita. What do you make of the news? Will you buy it?

    Great news. This game looks like it was made for Vita.

  • Anthony Brinklow

    Fantastic news, this was a game I was hoping would be revealed for Vita at e3. I’ll go for the physical version, hopefully at £20. Have they confirmed retail in eu?

    • Confirmed for UK, not sure for EU.

      • Anthony Brinklow

        Perfect. Thanks for the reply.

    Nice to see Ubi still has plans for the Vita. Looks like a quality effort and I’m sure I’ll pick this up someday. Sadly anything I purchase currently usually ends up finding it’s home on Mount Backlog. Quite sure it will be visible from space soon.

    Kinda odd the Vita would seeing a physical release. Wasn’t the console version download only? And what is meant by it being a complete version? Was DLC made available for it? A Vita Rayman Legends reference possibly?

    This is why I was holding myself back from buying this game, I knew I would play it on vita at some point.

    • Chief

      I saw this coming. It is a perfect game for the Vita.

  • Undrey

    This had to happen :D. I hope this does well for them to consider porting Valiant Hearts and maybe South Park.

    • nonscpo

      OMG wouldn’t it be great to play South Park on the go, I mean who wouldn’t?

      P.S. I forget is this game an indie game, I know Ubisoft is publishing it, but other than that all I know is that of got great reviews.

      • Undrey

        I’m basically waiting for it to come to Vita.

        I think a small part of a team made this, like Tearaway and Media Molecule.

        • nonscpo

          Cool so its not an indie, but instead made using non tradition/AAA gaming design.

          • Undrey

            Yup, it uses the same engine Rayman does I think.

    • Anthony Brinklow

      I’ve just started South Park last night, awesome game so far.

    Has the physical release been confirmed as a cartridge? I know it seems like a silly question but the Ubisoft links I’ve seen refer to it as a ‘retail release’ and the PS4 retail release was a box with artbook, poster, keyring, and a PSN code (not even a blu-ray disc!!)

    • Magnumstache

      Good point. Hopefully they’ll clarify this.
