Now Playing: Valiant Hearts: The Great War - Video Review

Child of Light is a side-scrolling, platforming RPG with turn-based combat set in a fantasy world inspired by childhood fairytales. In our review, we said it was "a wonderfully realized, somber adventure, and [we] couldn't be happier that such a game exists."

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a puzzle platformer inspired by letters written during World War I. In our review, we called it "a visually beautiful game that deftly moves between moments of joy and moments of tragedy, and ultimately doesn't shy away from the fact that 'great' is just about the last thing any war should be called."

Child of Light on the Nintendo Switch will be available on October 11, and Valiant Hearts: The Great War on the Nintendo Switch will be available on November 8.
