Child of Light, Ubisoft's take on the JRPG has some big names working with it. First up is Cirque du Soleil Media, brought on board to "enhance the theatricality" of the game. According to Ubisoft, the company "benefited from a world-class experience in theatrical realization and costume design, adding an authentic stage direction point of view to the game's creation."
We're not entirely sure what that means, but the game sure does look pretty. You can see more of Cirque du Soleil explain their collaboration in this new behind-the-scenes video:
In addition, the company managed to get Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano, best known for his work on the Final Fantasy series, to contribute art "inspired" by the game (above). In this video, you'll see Amano design his take on the game's heroine Aurora, a young princess who must win back the sun, the moon, and the stars.
