Child of Light is coming out at the end of this month for the Wii U eShop, but Eurogamer has managed to get their hands on a copy of the game early and they’re showcasing 10 minutes of commentary-free footage. If you’ve been on the fence about this game then check out the footage above. It’s the PlayStation 4 version of the game, but given that the game runs the UbiArt engine there will likely be very little graphical difference between the two systems.

You’ll see the start of the story and a little bit of the puzzles you’ll encounter in the game once it’s available. Are you going to pick up this game when it’s released?

    this game looks like it will be a lot of fun, the art design is great too

  • WiiUisgaming

    I hope we can move the fairy like Murphy in Rayman Legends

  • D.M.T

    Why is this a downloadable game? Release a retail version!!!

    • Kevin Sepulveda

      Because its more affordable probably. Plus the reality of it is that slowly but surly all games will be download only.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Not only that but it isnt such a huge and well known series so spending money on the case while not knowing the outcome is something they won’t do.

        • Kevin Sepulveda

          Yup! I could not agree anymore. Thumbs up for you 😀

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Its a low budget game

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      They did it just to make it inconvenient to gamers. Damn those bastards. How dare they!

      • D.M.T

        It was a question. Either answer the question or don’t say anything at all.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Jibber jabber, blee blah bleep. Nah, saying something will suffice. Besides, someone already answered it for you. Grouchy as usual I see. Lighten up. 🙂

    • Jessey

      They actually have a retail version in Europe but it’s PS4/PS3 only.

  • BIG Franky

    THIS LOOKS BEAUTIFUL…. I will definitely pick it up. I actually might have to pick it up on PS4 though given that I really don’t have anything to play on it now that I’m done with AC4.

    • D.M.T

      What games do you have for your PS4? I bought a PS4 this week and i think that this type of game is better on the Wii U. Have you played Killzone yet? That’s what i’m playing on PS4.

      • Lil J Moore

        That and ISS are the only games I have so far for my ps4

        • D.M.T

          I was about to buy InFamous SS but ended up buying Killzone because i wanted a shooting game for once.

          • BIG Franky

            I had Killzone…. sold it back…. its fun, and absolutely gorgeous (in parts)… but I sorta grew tired of it… the only first person shooter that I tend to like a lot consistently are games in the CoD series. I had Knack, but sold that back too (awful… don’t even bother)…. as I did with the piece of shit BF4…. Infamous looks awesome, but I am having a hard time reconciling the fact that I really didn’t like the first infamous on PS3 all that much, and I liked Infamous 2 even less… but this new one does look awesome… I just am not too excited as I just never really liked the series. Cant wait for Destiny though… or The Order.

  • Lil J Moore

    Can’t wait for this

  • palomino blue

    Only the best from UbiArt. But seriously, release a retail copy.

    • Kevin Sepulveda

      Sooner or later all games will be digital so we need to slowly get used to it or just choose not to buy anymore.

  • darkcreap

    Seems gorgeus!! The firefly is fit for the WiiU’s touchscreen. I will definitely buy this game for WiiU. By the way, they speak in rhymes, don’t they?

    The artwork is superb. It has a Tim Burton feeling to it.

  • TULFich

    Darn pretty!!! :3

  • janco tianno

    That’s a good start.

    Of course I would prefer that all Wii U games could have retail games, but in my opinion this is good. Instead of saying the WIi U port is too expensive, because it will not sell, and , they just organize their development team, make engines for all latest consoles, and the costs are reduced with digital sales.

    For me it’s just great that Wii U is receiving a title that will be released for PS4 also.

  • Blue Hernandez

    This looks really good and the music matches the mood perfect! I can’t wait to this for my Wii U.

  • Moreck

    Looks gorgeous!!

  • Rinslowe

    This looks sublime…
    In bed, off tv play, looks like the way I’m gonna play this one.

  • Erik

    This is the game i really really really really really WANT! Haven’t played an RPG game on a console (Last game was only KH2). Wish they can bring it to retail (wouldn’t really care about price since i got enough 😉 ) but download only just fits fine (since i have like $55 in my eShop!). Can it be April 30th already??

  • jpw2001

    I will be buying this game day 1

  • Cahone2

    Just bring Maplestory 2 to systems

  • Cyntheta Luis

    I will defiantly be the first one to pick it up

  • Cyntheta Luis

    Giving me the goose pump of awesome

  • Niels Matthijs

    Hell yes, one of the games I’ve been looking for the most.
