More details have been revealed for the newly announced platformer RPG Child of Light. Developed by Ubisoft, you play as the female protagonist Aurora – a young princess with a pure heart whose soul is brought to the Kingdom of Lemuria – trapped in a waking dream. The Kingdom is in utter despair as the wicked Black Queen has taken the sun, the moon, and the stars for her own greedy desires and needs Aurora to restore the three sources of light to Lemuria.
Take an extraordinary journey through the vast world of Lemuria and explore its mythical environments, interact with its inhabitants as you discover new locations and their secrets. Core gameplay allows Aurora the power to fight creatures from the dark and to restore the Stolen Lights from the Black Queen in turn-based combat. And fighting alongside your firefly ally, Igniculus, will give the princess an extra edge in battle, as he can be controlled by another player in co-op mode to retrieve items and interrupt enemies – much like Murfy in Rayman Legends. Child of Light is on target for a 2014 release for the Wii U eShop. And if you haven’t seen the gorgeous trailer yet, you can view it here.
