One of the unique aspects of Ubisoft’s upcoming Child of Light is the co-op feature. We haven’t seen much of it up until now. From the video we see the co-op player takes the role of Igniculus, a blue ball of energy that can assist the main player on their journey. This approach takes inspiration from Mario Galaxy co-op, where the second player doesn’t have a character of their own, but rather aids the main character.

Players who play Igniculus can illuminate hidden areas, and even heal the main character after damage. It’s a unique look at two player gameplay and should make for a great experience.

Child of Light is releasing on April 30 on the Wii U eShop.

  • Can’t wait to see more it’s amazing.

  • Wooopigsooie

    Fantastic looking game really. Anyone who refuses to buy this “because it’s Ubisoft” is just plain stubborn. Also the Wii U version I would expect to the best as secondary type characters work very well w/ the gamepad.

  • That Music, damn it’s so nice and relaxing. I’ll get this game day one, maybe day 2 for sure.

  • Kyle

          • Magnus Eriksson

            She likes this kind of style. Its kind of adventure-saga-fairytale style. I think she will ejoy it. Looks like a quality game too πŸ™‚

    • Daniel Gonzalez

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Nice tone.

  • Pablo LavΓ­n

    Actually I dont Like this kind of multiplayer

  • Kevin Sepulveda

    This one feature alone has officially sold the game to me. Day 1 here I come.

  • Umjereni

    It definitely looks interesting. However, it seems to me it is kinda repackaged Rayman. Similar 2D and even some enemies behave similar.
