Ubisoft is ramping up for the Child of Light release on April 30, showcasing the world of Lemuria in a brand new trailer. The trailer takes a look at several locations available in the game and the things you’ll experience there, from what appears to be woodland villages all the way to castles in the clouds. The UbiArt engine that made Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends successful games is being utilized once more, with gorgeous effects. There’s no gameplay here, so if you’re looking to see what the game plays like, be sure and check out this trailer.

Will you be picking up this game when it’s released in April 30?

    Such a beautiful fairytale style. My daughters will love this game. 🙂

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      It certainly is. 🙂

    • knight80

      Yeah it sure does wish i could get it on retail for wii u.

    • knight80

      i meant a physical copy oops:)

  • Ducked

    The only indie game I bought last year was Cloudberry Kingdom, which I was very happy with. I won’t be buying this since most of my money are going to different games, still looks intriguing.

    • Einar

      This isn’t an indie game though.

  • darkcreap

    Better and better. It looks impressive!!! The more I see from this game, the more I like it.

    • jrob23

      yeah, how they are rolling this out is perfect. So pretty. Ubi is so talented making games like this. Perfect for Nintendo’s style.

  • BIG Franky

    interesting how Aurora ages from a little girl to a young woman throughout the game… I didn’t know that occurred, as it wasn’t showcased in previous trailers.

    • Mario

      I guess time flows in this game.

  • I read ”
    Ubisoft shows us the world of Lukemia”… Glad I was wrong

  • Capt. Smoker

    Looking forward to this game, I’m looking forward to anything at this point, looks like Reggie was blowing smoke up our ass when he claimed Wii U wouldn’t face another drought, oh well, at least we can count on Ubisoft I suppose.

    • Rygar

      Having a 3DS and a Wii U makes droughts meaningless.

      • Capt. Smoker

        I have a 2ds and a vita tv and a wii u, still have droughts though, probably because I’m a faddy gamer and only play certain types of games, a lot ot people just play some games as something to play, not realty my kind of thing really, I just want x and fire emblem x shin megami tensei already

    • ETeach

      Mario Kart, NES Remix 2, Tomodachi Life and One Piece Red are pretty much keeping my drought at bay this summer.

      • Capt. Smoker

        I’ve been replaying persona 3 & 4 so I’m quite occupied, also got a bit of an obsession with Kirby at the minute so I’ve been huffing and puffing my way through them all again lol

        • ETeach

          Wish I had a kirby obsession. My metroid obsession is eating serious time.

          • Capt. Smoker

            Damn….. saw this one hour a go, been playing other m since, time for another sick day ^___^

          • ETeach

            Despite what most people say I really like that one. I’m trying to get through Metroid 2 right now… It’s painfully slow without an in-game map though.

  • Drewtlo

    After that trailer? Yes, definitely getting it.

  • Rygar

    This is the only non-Nintendo game I actually care about this year. Well, unless you count Bayo 2 as a non-Nintendo game.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Basically is. It just appears to be a Nintendo game since Nintendo will be publishing it.

      • That guy who hates Spike


        • Daniel Gonzalez

          So Nintendo owns the Bayonetta ip? That’s news to me.

          • ETeach

            Obviously not, but it’s kind of a fuzzy grey area. It’s kind of like calling Titanfall a Microsoft game, it’s mostly true.

  • Rygar

    I won’t be surprised if this sells best on Wii U like Rayman did. This game just seems made for the Nintendo audience.

    • RyuNoHadouken

      it’ll sell better on steam, by far

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I feel I’ll be loving this game more than I did Rayman Legends. The art style is certainly attractive to the naked eye. Certainly looks like something I’ll buy on Steam or PS4. Can’t wait for April 30th.

    • knight80

      Hey you have a PS4 have you ever played Outlast?

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Nah. Never had the honor of trying it. Most friends of mine said it was a good game overall. Only thing that annoyed them, was that the enemies became repetitive as the game went along.

    • tronic307

      I’ll be EXACTLY the same on Wii U, unless you have a Nvidia graphics card and want to check it out in 3D Vision. The two Rayman games that use this engine are mind blowing in 3D! I still bought Legends for Wii U.

  • MerryBlind .

    UGHhh the choppiness!!! it hurts!! it hurts!!! Looks amazing though.

  • Carlos Webster

    The thumbnail shows thd circle with those symbols looking like a sad face.

  • RyuNoHadouken

    PC version, FTW!!!!

  • Roman

    My body is ready.

  • Adrian Brown

    I used to care about Ubisoft…

  • cthreep

    I love that this game looks like a painting. Rayman Legends was all cartoony and smooth, Child of Light is all paintingy and blotchy and loose. Love both styles, looking forward to this change.

  • fireheartis1

    Wow looks pretty cool.

  • palomino blue

    Just breathtaking.

  • Usaamah

    Lemuria… Golden Sun: A Lost Age. That is all.

  • ETeach

    I just can’t get excited for this game. It looks beautiful, but it also looks kind of generic-2d-platformery. Then there’s the fact that it’s made by Ubisoft. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Wii U version gets delayed for a couple of years due to a lack of resources…
