Ubisoft Partners With Cirque Du Soleil

We've all seen Child of Light's stunning, watercolor art style. Now Ubisoft in the latest "making of" trailer for the game is highlighting the creative partnerships, including famous performance group Cirque Du Soleil, that will help bring the game even closer to the developer's vision.

Ubisoft partnered with Canadian singer and pianist Cœur de Pirate to create the music for the game, some of which you can hear in the video below. Pirate says the score for the game was originally going to be small in scope, incorporating piano, guitar, and maybe a chello. However, the intensity of the game's boss fights convinced her more was needed, so she partnered with The Bratislava Orchestra to create a larger sound better suited to the action on screen.

Ubisoft Montreal also worked with Cirque Du Soleil Media, using their unique experience in stage direction and costume design to further improve Child of Light. 

It's not Ubisoft's first time partnering with outside creatives for their fairy-tale inspired RPG. A video released earlier this week has Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano of Final Fantasy fame creating a unique piece of art inspired by the game.

Child of light is available April 30 for Xbox One, 360, PlayStation 4, PS3, PC, and Wii U.

  • The last cirque du solieil story I remeber was someone falling to their death.
  • I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those games where I'm going to be very sad when it's all over. They seem to be crafting a truly one of a kind experience here.

  • The 30th seems so far away...
  • This game looks beautiful, going to have to buy a copy. Hope it reaches its financial goals.

  • This game looks amazing and I can't wait to play it! Especially since it's only $15 and available on a ton of platforms. Thinking about getting it for WiiU just to give the beleagured console a bump :-D
  • Cirque Du Soleil could be one of the greatest things to see in person, I've been lucky and have seen (at least) 5 different performances, every single one of them amazing. Don't recommend children to go to them since they're oddly dark and messed up and highly beautiful (so in other words France in a nutshell). I still see the headless man with the floating hat in my dreams who comes to kidnap a little girl. Edit: Got the story a little mixed up, it's a girls dream acted out on stage and I found a picture of the creepy headless man: http://www.chicagostagereview.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/13.jpg
