Ubisoft have announced that Child of Light their fairy tail RPG is now available on Xbox Live, PSN, PC and the Nintendo eStore. The launch trailer can be viewed above.
Child of Light is also heading to retail as a Deluxe Edition which is available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. The Deluxe Edition contains an awesome poster designed by Yoshitaka Amano, the renowned Japanese artist, a 24 page artbook with previously unrevealed artworks and an Igniculus key ring.
This boxed edition will also include additional game content such as a bonus quest, a new character, and a pack of collectibles.
For those who don’t know what Child of Light actually is, Ubisoft describe the game as a “re-imagining of classic fairytales set against a picturesque background inspired by the watercolor artworks of The Golden Age of Illustration. As a playable poem, 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.”
The game is also one of the first western attempts at creating a traditional JRPG style game.
Child of Light was created by Ubisoft Montreal using Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists almost literally bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted directly into the game world. This is evident in Child of Light as the overall effect of the game is akin to stepping into an interactive painting.
