Publisher Ubisoft has just announced that its recently-released turn-based role-playing-game set in the magical world of Lemuria, Child of Light, will be digitally released on the PlayStation Vita, on the 2nd of July, being priced at £11.99.
I wonder if it will be cross-buy then... already bought it for the ps4
I imagine so, it's cross buy PS3 / PS4 so I don't see why Vita wouldn't be included.
nice! it remote plays nicely, but a native experience would be ideal, especially while traveling. also give me a good excuse to put CoL down to fire up transistor tonight!
@ipach Why would you even need an excuse to put COL down in the first place?? It's too awesome to not play! Best rpg since ni no kuni
Note sure but a retail version has also been announced. I also want cross save....
It's a digital release. I'll be surprised if it isn't cross-buy.
The Problem I have with Child of Light is this: * In every trailer or preview, it never actually shows me WHAT I WILL BE DOING IN GAME. * I don't about some BS trailer, I want IN GAME FOOTAGE. * When I look up & watch gameplay videos, it's almost nothing like what the trailer shows me. Why is this ? I didn't even know you could do anything besides stand still & float around until I watched a gameplay video. Who does these trailers for these gaming companies and why do they show so little, if any gameplay. It's not just this game, I should point out, that the large majority of games are like this, but some literally tell you nothing about the game. That being said, I hope this game does very well.
Those trailers are made to express what the creator wanted to point out about the game. They show the part of the game that THEY feel will impart a lasting impression on a viewer to get them interested in the product. Once someone gets interested in the product, they can then go search with the internet to find out everything they want to know. Honestly, if you wanted to see what the game play is all about, it's not that difficult to type "YouTube" and then "child of light game play".
Play the demo.
Sounds good i was gonna buy it on wii u, but 2d games look amazing on the original vita model.
Good, this game deserves to be everywhere.
Indeed. The game deserves more exposure and the Vita deserves better games.
good thing i haven't bought it yet, if the port is good this is the version I'm getting. Rayman was much better on Vita due to OLED and this is the same engine
OHH MAN! I hope the port is really good. It will be the best place to play :)
This is perfect. Games like this should be on the Vita. I hope Transistor follows.
"More than that, a retail edition containing additional game content – such as a bonus quest, a new character, and a pack of collectibles – will be released on the same day." I guess Im going to buy the game again
I just downloaded this for x1, and it's a great game, great concept, art style, and all the etceteras. So a vita version would be perfect for those on the go moments
When they mean 'retail' do they mean a box with a code inside or an actual vita cart? If its a vita cart with all the extra content on it? Sold!
I honestly don't know. The press release only mentions a "retail copy." Everything on a single card would be sweet, but these kinds of extra bits are almost always just uploaded online for players to download via a code. It's easier for the developer.
Awesome! I always imagined this game would be perfect for Vita, glad to see it's releasing on it!
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
Cool. Enjoying this game, although may be a tad easy.
Oh wow. Bet this will look so good on an OLED screen.
