The lights are on
Players eager to dive into the gorgeous world of Lemuria can now mark their calendar.
Ubisoft announced today that Child of Light will be released digitally on April 30 on Xbox Live for both the 360 and Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 through PlayStation Network, the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, and through Steam on PC. Child of Light is rated Everyone 10+ and will be available for $14.99.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the game is a reimagining of classic fairytales and combines turn-based combat inspired by classic Japanese RPGs with a stunning painted art style. Wondering how the game has such a beautiful, hand-drawn look? That’s because it is. Using Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, artists can breathe life into their concept art by placing it directly into the game.
Players take on the role of the young girl Aurora, who is stolen from her home. On her quest to return she will have to bring back the sun, moon, and stars being held captive by the Queen of the Night. Aurora will be accompanied by a firefly named Igniculus as the two set out upon a modern coming-of-age story.

Not disc-based, not buying. Sorry Ubisoft. Looks great though.
