Child of Eden Soars To Xbox 360 First On June 14th

By Ishaan . March 15, 2011 . 1:03pm

At E3 last year, Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s studio, Q Entertainment, revealed a spiritual successor to the Dreamcast game by the name of Child of Eden. Published by Ubisoft, while Child of Eden supports regular controllers, Q have emphasized Microsoft’s Kinect controller as the control scheme of choice.


Q Entertainment showed the game off at the Penny Arcade Expo in Boston this past weekend, where they also announced a release date for the game: Child of Eden hits the Xbox 360 on June 14th in the U.S. No date for the PlayStation 3 version has been announced yet.


When we interviewed Mizuguchi last year at E3, he told us that Child of Eden is the culmination of many of his life’s recurring themes. Even the music for the game was composed by his musical outfit, Genki Rockets.


Update: Post updated to reflect that PlayStation Move support hasn’t officially been announced at this time.

  • This looks awesome. I hope the PS3 experience is comparable to the Kinect one. All of the gameplay looked so awesome for it.

  • Code

    rar, looking way more forward to this then I initially expected, it just looks absolutely beautiful in motion >ww<'

    I have bought a Kinect basically for this game alone (although here’s hoping I’ll get more… Project Draco and Rise of Nightmares might be good, and I have my sight set on Gunstringer too).

    Mizuguchi, you better deliver.


    you absolutely must clarify, when did they confirm it supports Move?

    Our latest official answer was that they were considering it. Where did you get the final word? Thanks

    • Noted and post updated. You’re right, they still haven’t “officially” said yes to Move aside from the fact that it’s under consideration. Thanks for pointing that out. :)

  • PrinceHeir

  • Will be interested in seeing how the pictures i submitted are worked into the game

  • Man I hope this game plays well with a normal Xbox 360 controller. No interest in Kinect here…
