A fairy tale world will spring to life on your consoles and PC when Child of Light releases on April 30, 2014 for $14.99. The downloadable role-playing game is in development at Ubisoft Montreal and built on the UbiArt Framework, an engine that helps designers breathe life into their hand-crafted art, creating worlds that feel like interactive paintings. With a story told in rhyming verse, Child of Light features turn-based combat (inspired by classic JRPGs), a deep customization system, and a quest that can be played solo or co-op. Check out the new trailer for a glimpse of the mystical kingdom of the Lemuria and the magic and mysteries that await this April.

Take control of Aurora and her companion Igniculus on the PS3 and PS4 (via the PlayStation Network); Xbox 360 and Xbox One (via Xbox LIVE); Wii U (via the eShop); and PC (via Steam) this April. Prepare to be swept away by this charming coming-of-age tale in which Aurora must free the sun, moon and stars, which are held captive by the Queen of the Night, in an epic adventure that has our hero facing everything from fierce dragons to her darkest fears.

    This is a game my Vita is imploring to have. Please, any comments regarding a Vita version in the near future?

    What a beautiful looking game. I'm excited to explore this world and I think this is the sort of the experience that would really shine on the Vita. Any chance of this game being ported? Thanks!
