Rayman Legends gets pushed back, goes multi platform

 

Rayman Legends, a sequel to one of my favorite games of this generation, Rayman Origins, has been pushed back till early September Ubisoft announced in a press release this morning. The game will also be available on other platforms as well when it launches. Formerly a Wii U exclusive, the game will be on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as well. The game was set to be released in just 3 short weeks and now has been set back several months. I had a chance to play Rayman Legends on the Wii U, and I liked what they added while keeping true to the fantastic, side scrolling platforming in the original. I hope they keep the increasing difficulty level that Origins had, the further in the game you got, your timing had to be more precise. The Ubiart engine is something of beauty and the soundtrack was phenomenal. It is sad that a game so close to release is getting pushed back, but for more people to enjoy this wonderful new series, I am all for waiting. The official press release is below.

 

“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.”

    I am sure it will be too, but they could have released the Wii U version on time and ported the rest for the September release. The Wii U is in need of some new software.
