I got the same feeling due to the wording: Rather than say "a new Child of Light", it sounds like this will more likely be a spin-off than a sequel... not that the game really left any room for a sequel within the same universe.
Whatever the case, I loved the original and I sincerely hope that we do see more come from this IP. Whatever they come up with, i'm sure it won't be half as bizarre as this:
No, keep the 2D style.
The combat definitely needs some improvement tho.
I'm excited! I really loved the first game.
Hopefully whatever comes out of these projects has Cœur de Pirate music in them
I'd love to make up a rhyme expressing my delight... but that's a lot of work. Gorgeous game, breathtaking soundtrack - it was such a joyful little palate cleanser of a game. Please, sir, we want some more!
My Igni keychain never worked, and I'm still hella bitter.
Great news. Child of Light is a memorable game with a memorable setting and artstyle. However, as a non-RPG player, i'd really really really love to see a dedicated platform game (think Rayman Legends) in the world of Child Of Light, or an adventure game (similar to Valiant Hearts). That would be so amazing.
Out of their budget. As far as I'm aware the Ubiart engine is a 2D engine, so they'd need to create an entirely new one for a 3D RPG and that'd cost a lot more money than Ubisoft is willing to spend on a small project like Child of Light.
Anyway, eh. I found the first game pretty boring so hopefully a sequel would be a lot more interesting and fun. I'd prefer more Valiant Hearts projects actually, even if its creator has left Ubisoft.
I kinda enjoyed child of light and even finished the game so a sequel or a game in that universe sounds nice. I just feel like they could have done a lot more in the game so I really do hope that the game has more of a wow factor in like how did they think to do that when it presents it artwork.
