UBISOFT®'S RAYMAN LEGENDS NOW COMING TO XBOX 360® AND PLAYSTATION 3®


London, UK - February 7th, 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 will now 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. "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.

Makes sense, from the demo on my WiiU it never made sense why they wouldn't release them on other platforms.

especially when the previous title was multi-platform

It uses the Tablet controller on the Wii U (the little bug guy is controlled by tapping and dragging). They'd have to really alter the game to make it work on the 360 or PS3.

Have you played the game on the WiiU ? there's none of the tablet controller stuff that couldn't be done with a controller. in fact I'd say the game would be better without it.

sure it uses the tablet in a unique ish way and at least makes creative use of it. but it still seems unnecessary. and it's annoying the way it splits the focus between the screens, and first look at the TV, then, look at the screen, then look at both, then look at the TV... it's just annoying, especially in the tilt the world sequences... gah.

I hope it's released on PC as well, as I enjoyed Rayman Origins.

Ubisoft has announced that Rayman Legends has been delayed and will no longer be a Wii U exclusive. Legends will now hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U in early September, more than six months later than its original release date of February 26th.

well that's disappointing

why would they do that? why not just release the Wii U version now and the other versions later?

Crap :(

Was getting ready to buy/play this game, Origins was good and the demo from Legends is awesome!

I think it's the second time it's delayed, it was supposed to be a Wii U launch title... not 100% sure about that, but I think I saw that somewhere.

Yeah it was supposed to be a launch game, they delyaed it about 1-2 month before launch. Now this, I don't get why they want to launch all version at the same time. Unless they get more money out of selling on xbox and ps3 then on wiiU. But even then, i wanted to play that game this month.

it really is just a dick move, they didn't even give a good reason for the delay (actually they didn't give a reason at all, which is even worse IMO)

I was going to get the Wii U version when it was going to release in February, but since they are delaying it to the same month as GTA V, I will probably just skip it now.

Kind of dumb to delay a finished game because you want to make it multiplatform at the last minute. :s
