Young Aurora wakes up in a strange land where all light has been stolen from the sky. Before she can return to her home, she must return the Moon, Sun and Stars and free the kingdom of Lemuria from Queen Umbra’s influence. Built on the UbiArt Framework and inspired by epic poetry and dark fairytales, Child of Light is truly a work of art brought to life – and now it’s a work of art you can bring with you wherever you go.

    With the PS3 and PS4 versions featuring Cross-Buy, will the PS Vita version also feature this enabling those that have already bought the game to experience it on the handheld at no additional cost?

    I almost bought it on Steam; glad I held off because this seems perfect for the Vita!Thanks for continuing to support the Vita, Ubisoft! Now do a Watch Dogs spin-off and I will have your babies!

    The UK press release states that there will be a retail Collector's Edition. Please tell me US is getting that too?

    Finally,tnx Ubisoft for listening to us :) I hope we get Far Cry for Vita as well.

    Will it be cross-buy and cross-save? If it's not cross-buy I'd be more likely to buy it again if it had cross-save. It just makes sense at this point for games released on both consoles to have it.

    Does the EU Vita retail release have an actual cartridge or will it be a PSN code like the PS4 release?

    Just please bring Splinter Cell:Blacklist to Vita as well.it's not late yet.

      I think it IS a bit late to do that. They'd be better off having a standalone Splinter Cell spin-off on Vita.

    I'm so very excited about this! My PS Vita is READY! Praise God that Ubisoft continues to support the PS Vita! Child of Light is truly a beautiful work of art!

    Awesome news .. I'm patiently waiting for this .. played the demo on PS3 but prefer it on Vita as I don't have time to play @ home as I'm always on the GO.

Have something to say?
