Everyone’s favorite limbless platforming hero has been delayed, and he’s no longer exclusive to Nintendo’s Wii U. Rayman Legends is now slated for a September release on Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Rayman Legends was originally set for release in late February, and the game’s Wii U GamePad functionality has been promoted as a main feature. It will be interesting to see how or if the motion controls will translate to the 360’s Kinect and the PS3’s Move.
There was no official word on the Wii U delay, but Ubisoft did have the following to say regarding the added platforms:
“We heard from many Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing 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.”
