One of the unique aspects of Ubisoft’s upcoming Child of Light is the co-op feature. We haven’t seen much of it up until now. From the video we see the co-op player takes the role of Igniculus, a blue ball of energy that can assist the main player on their journey. This approach takes inspiration from Mario Galaxy co-op, where the second player doesn’t have a character of their own, but rather aids the main character.
Players who play Igniculus can illuminate hidden areas, and even heal the main character after damage. It’s a unique look at two player gameplay and should make for a great experience.
Child of Light is releasing on April 30 on the Wii U eShop.
