Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder photo
Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder
by Alessandro Fillari

Last year, the news of Ubisoft making an old-school throwback to the JRPG genre took a number of people by surprise. When Destructoid got the chance to check it out, there was a healthy amount of curiosity around it. Not too many people knew what to make of it, especially considering it was coming from the team that made Far Cry 3, which is a title that seems very far apart from it.

But after spending some time with Child of Light, about three hours to be exact, there might be more in common with these two titles than you think. I got the chance to talk with lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem, and saw what passion and a small team working on a unique throwback to JRPG titles managed to come up with.

Nintendo Download: Yoshi's New Island

In Wii U news, Castlestorm has new DLC available and Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels has been added to the Virtual Console. That's it for Wii U news (sadface). Yoshi's New Island is the heavy hitter for the 3DS th...

Nintendo Download: NES Open Tournament Golf

The Wii U isn't getting much today, as the headliner is NES Open Tournament Golf for the Virtual Console. If you've paying attention, this is one of the inclusions in NES Remix 2, so expect all of those listed games to m...

Nintendo Download: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

The big release this week is clearly Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is hitting the Wii U this Friday both digitally and by way of retail. That's about the only real release on Wii U this week though, as the only ...

Nintendo Download: Super C

It's another slow week for both eShop fronts, as the only "new" addition to the Wii U's marketplace is the Virtual Console game Super C. Spin the Bottle was released some time ago on the Wii U, but today brings a fairly ...

Today is a bit more lively than last week's Nintendo Download, as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is hitting the Wii U. This is my favorite Zelda of all time, and I've played every single game. The Wii U eShop is...

Nintendo Download: Mighty Bomb Jack

Today's Nintendo Download is yet another odd slow burn of the Virtual Console variety, with Mighty Bomb Jack hitting the Wii U. That's literally it for the Wii U. On the 3DS, Life Force is out -- that's the only new release for the 3DS. Exciting! As far as sales go, Fractured Soul is down to $5.99 until February 6th, Shin Megami Tensei IV is $29.99 until February 3rd, and Project X Zone is $20.

On the Wii U this week you can grab Gradius and Cocoto Magic Circus 2. That's it. Seriously, that's it! Yet again, Super Mario Bros. 3 is missing. It's not a lost cause though, as Gradius may not be the be...
