Just look at that trailer — who doesn’t want to play Child of Light, a roleplaying platformer “inspired by fairy tales” that’s as adorable as adorable comes? You play as an abducted child trying to return home while challenging the Queen of the Night, who’s snuffed-out the sun, moon and stars.
Yes, I typed “roleplaying” and “platformer” in a sentence. The platforming elements appear to hew more Castlevania than Super Mario Bros., but combat — when you’re not off solving environment-based puzzles — resembles something you’d see in a turn-based RPG. Imagine something like Rayman if enemy encounters summoned a Final Fantasy-style battle interface and you’re probably close. Ubisoft adds that you can unlock over 200 skills and fiddle with over 600 crafting combinations, so beaucoup de RPG-style customization.
