This morning Ubisoft blessed me with an email stating that the much anticipated Wii U exclusive “Rayman Legends” — the game many gamers had been holding off on buying a Wii U would no longer be exclusive to the Nintendo system. Far more, the game has now been delayed to September. Please take a look at the press release before.
What does this tell us? Is the Nintendo system in a deep hole and these gaming companies know it? You’d be the judge.
UBISOFT®’S RAYMAN LEGENDS NOW COMING TO XBOX 360® AND PLAYSTATION 3®
San Francisco, CA — February 7th, 2013 — Today, Ubisoft announced that its forthcoming title Rayman Legends, already announced for the Wii U 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 September 2013.
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Rayman Legends are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Wii U 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 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.”
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.
