Ubisoft have announced partnerships with Canadian artist Coeur de Pirate to produce the game’s original soundtrack and le Cirque du Soleil Media to enhance the sense of theatricality in the game.
To fit the mystical atmosphere of Lemuria, Coeur de Pirate composed an intimate and nostalgic soundtrack. With the support of The Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, the Montreal-based artist was also able to recreate the epic and operatic ambiance of in-game fight sequences.
By collaborating with Cirque du Soleil Media, the Ubisoft Montreal team was able to benefit from a world class experience in theatrical realization and costume design, providing a real stage direction point of view to the game’s creation. It was the perfect match to expand Child of Light’s universe and design.
Child of Light is a reimagining of classic fairytales set against a picturesque background inspired by the watercolor artworks of The Golden Age of Illustration. As a playable poem, Child of Light puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a young princess who must win back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night.
Child of Light will be available to download on April 30th, 2014 on Xbox LIVE for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, the eShop from Nintendo for the Wii U, and PC Digital, at the price of £11.99. A boxed Deluxe Edition will also be available in retail on PS3 & PS4 as a cross-buy and on PC and includes a unique artbook, Igniculus key ring and other exclusive content.
