Rayman Legends Pushed Back to September, No Longer Wii U Exclusive
Fans that were hoping to get their hands on Rayman Legends for Wii U later this month will now have to wait until early September. Also, Rayman Legends is coming to the X-Box 360 and PS3, which is definitely awesome for owners of those platforms. All three versions are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and are scheduled to release together in September.
One has to wonder if going multi-platform caused the delay for the Wii U version. The press release is below if you want to pick it apart.
UBISOFT®’S RAYMAN LEGENDS NOW COMING TO XBOX 360® AND PLAYSTATION 3®
Paris, France – 07 Feb 2013
Today, Ubisoft announced that its forthcoming title Rayman Legends, already announced for the Wii UTM system from Nintendo, will also be released on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. All versions now will hit shelves in early September 2013.
The Microsoft Xbox 360® and Sony PlayStation® 3 versions of Rayman Legends are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Nintendo Wii UTM game. Rayman Legends has been praised for its stunning visuals and innovative gameplay by media around the world and labeled as one of the most anticipated platformers of 2013.
“We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system”, says Geoffroy Sardin EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer at Ubisoft. ”We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
Rayman Legends retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers from Origins has also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman’s graphics to the next level.
