Turn off the Lights

Ubisoft Announces New JRPG, Child of Light

Ubisoft's newly announced JRPG, Child of Light, is coming to Xbox 360, Wii U, Playstation 3, PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4, "Child of Light focuses on a young princess named Aurora who is whisked away to the kingdom of Lemuria, only to find its inhabitants turned into crows. The girl, along with her mystical blue orb companion, called Igniculus, must discover what has taken the land down a strange path."

According to a couple of previews for the game, the game features no random encounters, rather you see every enemy in the environment, and due to contact, you are then thrust into battle. It also features a combat system akin to the old Final Fantasy games of yore, which is a variant on the Active Time Battle system. In lamest terms, there is "a bar shows how long it will take for enemy actions (and those of your own) to initiate; casting big spells or employing special moves will increase or decrease your attack timing."   

There isn't much information out right now for Child of Light. With the stills and info they have sent out though, are you excited? Let us know in the comments below.
