Ubisoft is pleased to announce today that Child of Light for the Nintendo Switch is available now.
Gamers who missed out the release of Child of Light back when it was released a couple of years ago can purchase the Switch version for $19.99.
Here’s a quick overview of the game:
Inspired by childhood fairy tales, Child of Light is set in the magical world of Lemuria, a kingdom creatively hand-drawn and rendered with watercolor. Players embark on the coming-of-age journey of Aurora, a princess determined to save her lost kingdom and ailing father by recovering the sun, moon and stars that were stolen by the Dark Queen.
Child of Light is a classic RPG featuring turn-based combat with an active-time battle system, allowing players to fight alongside Igniculus and other members of Aurora’s party. Players will level up and gain skill points to unlock unique perks for the heroes. A deep crafting system allows players to combine gems to upgrade their swords, talismans and armor abilities as they solve puzzles and take on the minions of Lemuria’s Dark Queen. In addition, each game has a unique gem profile where gems that are found in one player’s game are rare in another’s, encouraging players to make trades.
With a mysterious world to explore, filled with enchanted locations and dynamic dungeons that evolve as lights are restored, players will encounter many eccentric creatures, including spirits of the forest, talking mice, wicked witches and evil sea serpents.
With the Nintendo Switch version of the game, players can can play anytime, anywhere, including with friends through tabletop mode. Players can also share their adventure with friends and family by having player two control Igniculus through the touch screen or by using the Joycon controllers.
The Child of Light: Ultimate Edition for Switch contains the full game plus seven previously released add-on packs, which include a new quest, unique skills, gems, and more.
