Don't be too intimidated by the little girl above. That's just Aurora, the star of the animated poem, Child of Light. Oh, and behind her is practically every nightmare she could ever face. Earlier today, Ubisoft revealed official artwork from the game alongside a video of renowned Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano speed-painting the impressive piece of art.
Child of Light re-introduces players to the classical fairytales of their childhoods, allowing them to adventure through epic poems plastered on top of vivid watercolor backgrounds. The main story tells of Aurora, a young princess on a quest to retrieve the sun, the moon, and the stars. Unfortunately, she is met with some resistance from the Queen of the Night, the antagonist currently in possession of the celestial bodies. Amano's artwork is intended to showcase everything the young girl must endure, a belief expressed in the previously mentioned video.
"When a child is born, she must fight against the challenges of the world she lives in. That's what I wanted to express."
Players interested in the title will not have to wait much longer. Child of Light will be launching on the digital storefront soon, coming to all major consoles, including the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and PC on April 30, 2014 in downloadable format.
