Earlier this year, it was announced that both titles were coming to the Nintendo eShop, along with a physical copy of Child of Light. Now, it seems that Valiant Hearts has joined this edition, with a supposed release date of January 31, along with a preview of the box art for this physical bundle.
Child of Light is a widely-acclaimed RPG narrating the story of a princess, cast adrift from the real world and fighting to save her home from a devastating flood. With fantastical watercolor aesthetics drawn by hand, this title first hit the Switch on October 11, joining the growing roster of third-party games on the Switch.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War follows the story of five soldiers brought together by the titular warfare. This unique narrative brings the visceral experience of war to life; in our review, Daniel Bischoff remarked that “Valiant Hearts could very well be the most poignant World War I game ever made.”
While the exact details of the Amazon.it listing might prove to be placeholders, this at least confirms the existence of a physical bundle expected to come next year. Moreover, we can also expect more news on the Child of Light sequel next year, after hints in a tweet by Patrick Plourde, the Creative Director and VP at Ubisoft Montreal.

With the words “Light 2” carefully placed in the top right of the Switch picture, it seems that Child of Light 2 is at least in development, with more news to come in 2019. Until then, you can expect the Child of Light and Valiant Hearts physical bundle to release early next year.
