Child of Light comes to PS3 and PS4 on April 30th in North America, and we’ve got a new interview with writer Jeffrey Yohalem. Plus: New releases for April 8th, 2014, South Park: Stick of Truth talk and much more.
Before a crumbling statue in a dark wood, Aurora faces her first enemy in Child of Light. As it screeches in the little girls’ direction, she hefts her oversized sword into the air with supreme confidence. She’s unfazed by its arachnid frame and menacing gait. This encounter depicts Child of Light in its purest form: unflinching, beautiful, and defiant of expectations. It’s a PS3 and PS4 RPG that celebrates the RPG tradition while striking out on a new path, wholly its own.
Bungie community manager Eric Osbourne, Child of Light co-creator Jeffrey Yohelem, and Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD associate producer Momchil Gindyanov join us for today’s double-stuffed show.
With a small build, dainty crown, and a sword too big too wield, Aurora is an unlikely heroine for an adventure. And yet how perfect a character, and champion, for Ubisoft’s upcoming JRPG tribute, Child of Light. This dazzling array of fantasy aims to open the gates to the world of JRPGs for all gamers, welcoming both long-time enthusiasts and complete newcomers. It’s disarmingly beautiful, lacquered in charm, complexly elegant, and even a little haunting. It’s scheduled for launch sometime in 2014, on PS3 and PS4.
