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.
