‘Child of Light,’ due out April 30, is a role-playing game in ‘platformer shoes’

Ubisoft’s “Child of Light,” inspired by Eastern European fairy tales and Japanese role-playing games, is “actually an RPG in platformer shoes,” Xbox Wire writes.

The game, available for download April 30 for $14.99 on both Xbox One and Xbox 360, has cooperative gameplay, but it can also be played solo as long as you’re not playing on the hardest difficulty setting.
