Can Ubi-lieve it?

When we reviewed Child of Light back in April, many pondered whether the resplendent role-playing game would extend to the PlayStation Vita. While publisher Ubisoft was coy at the time, it’s now confirmed that Igniculus and crew are set to march onto Sony’s handheld system in July, giving you yet another reason to return to Lemuria this summer.

Due out on 1st July in North America and 2nd July in Europe, the portable port will retail for £11.99 on the PlayStation Store. A physical edition will also be available in the UK – and presumably other territories, too – and will boast a bonus quest, additional character, and a pack of collectibles. Admit it: you’re excited, aren’t you?

We absolutely adored this dazzling UbiArt adventure on the big screen, and as far as we can tell from the first trailers and screenshots, this pocketable re-release looks exactly the same. “A lot like Braid in 2008, this will be a title that comes to represent a whole new generation of ‘artsy’ affairs,” our reviewer Mat Growcott wrote last month. Who said that the Vita’s dead?
