Renegade Kid has just announced that Mutant Mudds Deluxe will finally land on the Wii U on June 13th, 2013. Mutant Mudds Deluxe will have everything the Nintendo 3DS version of the game had – including the highly difficult Grannie levels – and more.

Mutant Mudds Deluxe is adding 20 new, ghost themed levels, and with those levels comes a new power-up designed to take down ghost baddies. Renegade Kid has also added checkpoints to the game to reduce the game’s infuriating – but fair – difficulty. Mutant Mudds will also feature off-TV gameplay using the Wii U GamePad.

Ubisoft made a lot of Nintendo fans angry earlier this year when they delayed the release of Rayman Legends. Well, it looks like Rayman Legends will be released a little sooner than expected. Instead of an early September release, Ubisoft will be releasing Rayman Legends on August 27, 2013.

Has the damage been done, or will this win over a few Nintendo fans?

Update: Looks like Ubisoft’s initial statement to Joystiq was incorrect because they have contacted them with the new release date of September 3, 2013. So, we’re getting that early September release after all.
