Child of Light

Ubisoft has released a new making of video for Child of Light, its upcoming Japanese RPG-inspired turn-based RPG from Ubisoft Montreal.

The game, influenced by watercolor artwork from the “Golden Age of Illustration,” takes players on a journey through the world of Lemuria in efforts to return home and bring back the sun, moon, and stars. The video takes a look behind-the-scenes at the inspiration for its artwork.

Watch the video below. The game will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC (via Steam) on April 30 for $14.99.

    I still do not understand this inspiration jrpg, nor remember this style.

      It’s inspired by JRPG’s because of certain elements, like the youth motiff, the vibrant colors, and the battle system.

      It’s not really gonna like like an anime styled offering from Japan, of course. But it does have some semblance to it.

        The colors of this game reminds Rayman.

        • Zackasaur

          This game is made with Ubisoft’s amazing UbiArt engine… The same engine which powers Rayman.

          I can think of no other engine as good as directly translating gorgeous concept art into great, playable games.

      Ubisoft published Grandia 2. This producer guy probably played it a lot.

    The game is beautiful :)

    Thought Ubisoft had opened a studio in Japan for a second. Almost shat my pants.

    I’m importing the Collector’s Edition from the UK.

    Fuck you, Ubisoft. I hate you for making that region-exclusive, but damn do I want this amazing game.

    To be honest, Ubisoft make a hell of a lot of amazing games… They’re my second favourite western publisher, after SCE. (Square Enix and Atlus are my two favourite Japanese ones.)
