While Ubisoft's charming platform role-playing game Child of Light is skipping Nintendo's last-gen console, the spirit of the Wii lives on inside it's utterly charming co-op gameplay.

The game's circle of light co-op partner reminds me of so many Wii games — titles like Super Mario Galaxy, where player two could take up the Wii remote as a helpful pointing object. Ubisoft's take on the friendly cursor seems a bit deeper, but the idea's basically the same.

Child of Light is coming to both PlayStations, the Xboxen and PC at the end of April. I might just pick it up on the Wii U, for old time's sake.
