According to Videogamer, Child of Light is being developed on the Rayman Origins engine. Ubisoft described the game as a "fairytale game" which it hoped would capture the "Squaresoft spirit" of titles like Final Fantasy 7 and Vagrant Story.
Creative director Patrick Plourde dubbed it a "playable poem," which he saw as the "counter-point" to Far Cry 3. There were no platforms or concrete release dates announced, but Plourde believed the game was a next-gen IP, and could see release by the end of 2013.
IGN was also on hand at the event, and managed to capture a bit of Child of Light in action. Take a look, and let us know what you think.
