Child of Light: Ultimate Edition
Last week, Ubisoft announced that Child of Light was headed to the Nintendo Switch, as Child of Light: Ultimate Edition. It will be released on October 11th. Here’s all you need to know about it:
Child of Light tells the coming-of-age story of Aurora, a young girl struggling to save the lost kingdom of Lemuria and her ailing father. Created as a modern reimagining of childhood fairy tales with distinctive watercolor visuals, Child of Light sees Aurora, her firefly Igniculus, and a host of other party members take on the Dark Queen of Lemuria and her minions in tough turn-based combat.
As you triumph over the Dark Queen’s minions in this RPG, you’ll level up and unlock skill points used to upgrade the unique abilities of your party members while crafting and improving your equipment. By utilizing the power of light, Aurora and Igniculus will work together to solve puzzles. On Switch, players can team up with a friend as Igniculus can be controlled by another player using a Joy-Con controller.
Speaking of Child of Light, Patrick Plourde (Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal) teased a sequel on Twitter the other day:
Child of Light: Ultimate Edition (Switch) comes out on October 11th in Europe and North America (with the retail version following shortly after). The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
