Stunning title practically overdue for Sony's handheld.
'Child of Light,' Ubisoft's downloadable and beautiful turn-based RPG, is coming to the Vita this summer. Built by a small team at Ubisoft Montreal, 'Child of Light' illustrates how Ubisoft's UbiArt Framework engine, which most recently helped to realized the pretty 'Rayman Legends,' is helping to blur the line between concept art and game assets. The Vita version has a date of July 1st, and is priced at $14.99, which is in line with other versions.
From Ubisoft, "Child of Light is 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. A return to the classic JRPG, Child of Light blends together platforming and turn-based combat along while providing a rich storyline, robust soundtrack and beautifully-rendered hand drawn art style."
'Child of Light' has already been released on the Xbox One, PS4, 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC.
From the High-Def Digest review of 'Child of Light' for the PS4:
"Yes, the game is gorgeous. Hand-drawn games often are, but with 'Child of Light' there's a certain water-color quality to the environments and characters that will forever keep it separate from the pack."
