Child of Light goes Deluxe, gets trailer

Child of light delux edition

Of all the titles launching in the first half of this year, I have to say that my heart is aching the most for Child of Light. It simply looks beautiful, and impressive, and it’s an RPG that my soul has been crying for. Now, we get a new trailer and details on the Deluxe Edition.

Finally, the UK and EMEA territories (that includes us, in case you were wondering) are getting something the US isn’t. That’s right, the Deluxe Edition is exclusive, and it’s mighty pretty. Including bonus digital content, an A2 poster designed by Yoshitaka Amano, a 24 page art book with previously unrevealed artwork and an Igniculus key ring, the Deluxe Edition will also grant access to additional game content with a bonus quest, new character and a pack of collectibles. Sign me up!

Don’t worry if you’re unsure if you’ll be upgrading to a newer console, either. The PS3 and PS4 version of the game for retail and digital distribution will get the cross-buy option. In case you’ve forgotten what this game is all about, the official description is:

Child of Light is a reimagining of classic fairytales, inviting players on an epic adventure into the magical painted world of Lemuria. Players will uncover mysteries, participate in turn-by-turn combat inspired by classic JRPGs, and explore a mystical kingdom. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the Queen of the Night. Helped by her companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears, including dragons and other mystical creatures, in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.

Just when I thought there wasn’t any way to make me want this game even more, they add this stunning co-op trailer that makes me want to play well with others. 30 April simply can’t come soon enough.

    Apparently even the ordinary boxed edition comes with additional content that the digital version doesn’t include.

      Why not include it in the game then?

        After watching CAPCOM chop the studio who made Okami, Killer 7 and Viewtifull Joe, I was relieved to see UBISOFT giving some cell shaded love to The Prince of Persia Sands of Time.

        I WANT MORE CELL SHADING PLEASE UBI

            Nothing wrong with it. The game is about flow, even the art direction is almost up there with Okami. You cant die.

            Just Nolan North’s voice acting can make you grit your teeth a little.

            Imagine playing Assassins Creed and you are jumping pole to pole, ledge to ledge. Then you miss the next jump, your partner saves you and you continue the flow. It would be very annoying if you had to backtrack the level over and over to get that jump right.

            Remember, that was the reason why POP invented the rewind feature.

          Dragon Quest 8

          Damm now I realize why I do not give a shit about next gen.

          Now if Dragon Quest NEXT GEN was released alongside the PS4, not only would the entire nation of Japan take the day off work but I would be giggling like a little schoolgirl while skipping to BT Games 12am release.

            Lol if only, but they taking DQ the MMO route 🙁 Very sad about that. But, there is DQ 7 remake in the works for 3DS (I know, handhelds bleh), but DQ 7 is a flippen amazing game man, one of the few games that just made me smile whole way through

            If it made Japan stand still for a day, why not do it again. I will never understand modern day marketing.

            The same goes with Monster Hunter, If one wants to save the crap sales of a handheld just make Monster Hunter. But alas, they have not thought of that yet.

            Same goes for the STEAM box, If Gabe cannot bring himself to understand that Portal 3 and HL 3 are instant system sellers then they are not that desperate.
