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?
