Here's a few minutes of gameplay from Child of Light

Lead programmer Brianna Code walks us through some combat and exploration

Child of Light was the big surprise coming out of a Ubisoft event a few months ago; a fairytale JRPG being developed by the same studio who did Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon? Seemed odd but the game itself looks gorgeous and now we have a video showing off a few minutes of gameplay, narrated by the lead programmer Brianna Code.

First thing that's caught my eye is how great Child of Light animates, from Aurora's flowing hair to the way she flies around the world. We can also see some of the turn-based combat system and a puzzle that the player must solve using the skills of the game's other main character Igniculus.

I like how a second player can control him to help the main player with things like avoiding combat or skipping obstacles. I'm really keen to get my hands on Child of Light as soon as I can but it looks like we'll have to wait until sometime in 2014 to play it.
