I occasionally take standpoints that to me seem quite mundane, but are actually contentious. One such standpoint is that I really just want all games to move to the Vita. I understand it is not possible for all games and will go to the full system when needed. But in the case of a game like Child of Light the chances of me playing that while tethered to my TV was phenomenally low.
Now those chances have shot into the high 90s as Child of Light is making its way to Vita. It will be available on July 2nd in Europe and July 1st in North America. The US version will be digital only and probably cost $15, as no solid price was given. The UK version though will have a hard copy of the game as well as a digital copy. The boxed copy will include new content like a bonus quest and a new character. Hopefully we poor US players will have access to the content that we deserve more than those silly UK blokes.
There is one bit of bad news as the game will not be Cross-buy. That is unfortunate but not a deal breaker, especially with how much the internet enjoyed the original release of Child of Light.
What do you think? Did you play and enjoy Child of Light? Would you play it again on the Vita? Let us know in the comments.
