Shine a Child of Light on Vita this summer

Gorgeous platforming RPG Child of Light is coming to Vita on July 2 in Europe. While there's no word yet from North America, PSN tradition suggests it might hit on July 1. [Update: Sure enough, it's July 1 in North America and digital-only, and the asking price is $15]

In the UK the Vita port costs £12 on PSN, and it's also getting a boxed copy that includes all additional content including a bonus quest, a new character, and a collectibles pack. We've confirmed with Ubisoft UK there is no cross-buy or cross-save functionality between the existing PS3 and PS4 versions and the new Vita release.

London, UK – May 20, 2014 - Today, Ubisoft announced that Child of Light™, the turn-based RPG set in the magical world of Lemuria, will release digitally on PlayStation® Vita on July 2nd at the price of £11.99. It will also release on PlayStation® Vita in a retail Complete Edition on the same day. This boxed edition will contain all additional game contents, including a bonus quest, a new character and a pack of collectibles.

Child of Light™ is a re-imagining of classic fairytales set against a picturesque background inspired by the watercolor artworks of The Golden Age of Illustration. As a playable poem, Child of Light™ takes players on an extraordinary journey through the mystical world of Lemuria by putting them in the shoes of Aurora, a young princess who must win back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. A return to the classic JRPG, Child of Light™ blends together platforming and turn-based combat along while providing a rich storyline, robust soundtrack and beautifully-rendered hand drawn art style.



Child of Light™ was created by a small team of developers in Montreal using Ubisoft's UbiArt Framework, a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted directly into the game world. In Child of Light™, the effect is that playing becomes akin to stepping into an interactive painting.



Child of Light™ is now available to download on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox® 360 and Xbox® One, the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4, the eShop from Nintendo for the Wii U, and PC Digital, at the price of £11.99. Child of Light™ is also available in retail as a Complete Edition on PlayStation® 3, PlayStation® 4 and on Windows® PC.
