Child of Light draws on Chrono Trigger, Grandia 2

Exploring the influences on Ubisoft's digital delight.

Ubisoft's got a fair few digital games bubbling along in the background, and doubtless the one that shines most brightly is Child of Light. A JRPG inspired adventure from Ubisoft Montreal, it's a delicate and quite beautiful looking game that's wowed anyone who's come into close contact - and queues to play it at a recent press event stretched on for a two hour long line.

Ian Higton was there to see it for us, and he also nabbed some time with its creator Jeffrey Yohalem who went through some of the influences behind the game, with the combat of Grandia 2 as well as the art of Final Fantasy 6 all being leant upon. A man of good taste, is Jeff. You can see the full interview below, as well as some extended looks at what's shaping up to be one of 2014's most interesting games.
