Ubisoft say they’ve partnered with Cirque de Soleil and song-writer Cœur de Pirate to “further develop Child of Light into a well-rounded work of art”. We aren’t quite sure what that means.
Ubisoft’s explanation about this so-called partnership with Cirque de Soleil is rather vague, too. They say the development team “benefited from a world-class experience in theatrical realization and costume design, adding an authentic stage direction point of view to the game’s creation.”
“Videogames invites players to be immersed in virtual worlds and no one is better to create immersive and magical experiences than the artists of the Cirque du Soleil,” said Patrick Plourde, in an equally unhelpful statement. “So to be able to collaborate with them to achieve Child of Light’s ambition to create a playable poem was a dream come true.”
Child of Light will be available on April 30th for $14.99 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
