Just a quick PSA: Ubisoft’s Child of Light launches today for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, and the company has one more gorgeous batch of screeshots to help sell you its game on launch day.
We’ve been following this brilliant looking little game for quite some time, and are thrilled to finally get a chance to play it. As a fan of classic JRPGs of all shapes and sizes, its nice to see a major Western publisher take a small gamble on a genre that major Western publishers typically flub up so badly. When left in the hands of fans and indie developers though, they tend to get the most out of it.
I’m downloading Child of Light now, so hopefully this is the one which breaks the string of bad luck. Plenty of JRPG fans from the Super Nintendo and PlayStation days have their own stories to tell, and its always great when someone finally gets the chance to do so. I’m hoping Ubisoft keeps up with this trend of indie inspired games from its biggest teams and we get a lot more gems out of it.
Again, Child of Light is available for just $15 on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and PC today.
