Destructoid: Child of Light is a return to classic JRPG wonder

Destructoid: Last year, the news of Ubisoft making an old-school throwback to the JRPG genre took a number of people by surprise. When Destructoid got the chance to check it out, there was a healthy amount of curiosity around it.

Delsin is a great character with great the potential to take the series to the next level, kind of like Nathan Drake with Uncharted. Throw in a little evolution in terms of gameplay, and it could be something really special. That said, inFAMOUS: Second Son is far from…
