Ubisoft to bring Child of Light and Valiant Hearts to the Switch

child-of-light-walkthrough.jpg

Two Ubisoft developed and published titles will be making their way to the Nintendo Switch later this fall. The first of which will be Child of Light, a 2014 platforming game with turned based RPG elements. It'll also have a co-op mode, where you can pass a second Joy-Con off to another player to control your second party member. Child of Light will release both physically and digitally on October 11th. Another 2014 game, Valiant Hearts: The Great War will also be headed to the Switch. In this game, you play as five different characters and their dog as they travel through France in the midst of World War 1. The Switch port will have new touch controls, and a short story comic that acts as a prequel to the game's story. Valiant Hearts will also get a retail and eShop release on November 8th.

Child of Light should have a sequel. It's a really great game. I rarely see people talking about it nowadays, but it's a really great game and has really awesome mechanics.

Child of Light is really amazing, nice sound tracks and style, too bad it's another port and not a sequel.
It's already on ps3, ps4, PS Vita, Xbox1, Xbox 360, PC, WiiU, come on.

Valiant Hearts? never heard of it.

Valiant heArts is a visual novel type of game. Telling a story about a veteran soldier and its journey through war. Its compelling and nice if it would suit your taste. Its very story based / story driven. If you ever heard of the Old Man's journey, it is similar But more action packed. I played it on mobile.

portendo strikes again!
seriously, they should get some new titles instead of just ports if they really want people to buy a switch.
I see people say this often, and it's silly. There's a steady trickle of new releases all the time if you bother to look. Besides that, what's wrong with getting ports on top of what's already coming out?

Let's run some numbers. The Switch has been out for a year and five months and already has 1,274 games available for it (source). In comparison, the PS4 and Xbox One have been out for roughly 5 years and have 1,808 games (source) and 1,606 games (source) respectively. So in little over a year, the Switch has 70-80% the amount of games as the other two consoles. Nintendo has also committed to releasing 30-40 games on the eShop every week, as per a recent investors briefing.

In truth, the Switch has received plenty of new games. but it's also received a metric fuckton of older games in a very short period of time. So why do you keep hearing about ports and not new titles? Simple: Portability. Many of these games were not available in an easily portable format before. The reason companies are eager to port their old titles to Switch is because people are eager to play those games on the go. That is a legitimate feature of the Switch that has resonated with a lot of people. So why not? The Switch is capitalizing on one of its key selling points.

So take a look, and you'll notice plenty of new titles coming out all the time. At the same time, understand that there's a whole truckload of ports releasing alongside them, and being well-received because of portability. You're not getting less new games, more ports, you're getting a good stream of new games and many, many ports on top, and the number of Switch games to date reflects the rapid pace at which games are launching for Switch.

I loved Child of light, the sound track is amazing and I'm still listening to it (in fact, half of it is my wake up sound track).
too bad it's only another port. I hope it'll include all the DLC, but I guess they won't do that.

Child of Light is using the same combat system than Grandia, which at its release was told to be the best RPG combat system ever created.
I recommend it if you like child tales, beautiful design and RPG.


Valiant heart is also known as "Soldat Inconnu" (unknown soldier), soldiers who died in a war and we couldn't identify.
I wanted to play that game, but I ended watching someone else playing it on PS4 share play. the game is very short.

Both great games, both worthy of another play, all boils down to the rrp though - both are quite easy, and short - and knowing the usual slightly-inflated-Switch-prices I'll probably pass ...but if you've never played either, buy them by all means! ;)

EDIT: Cyan: The artwork says 'Ultimate Edition' so it may well include the DLC (which I've not played myself! I'll probably get it then!)

Like chary said, Child of Light II anyone? Check the paper in this tweet :D

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
