Rayman Legends Release Date Revealed

Rayman Legends will release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on Aug. 30 in Europe and Sep. 3 in North America, Ubisoft announced.

Earlier this year Ubisoft faced a good deal of backlash with its handling of Rayman Legends. Initially, the game was going to be released as a Wii U launch title but was delayed with a new release date of Feb. 26. Literally almost two weeks before that release date, Ubisoft delayed the game again by almost seven months with a release date of sometime in September. And, much to the chagrin of Nintendo fans, Rayman Legends was also stripped of its Wii U exclusivity.

While the decision to make Rayman Legends multiplatform was a welcome one by PS3 and Xbox 360 fans, the creators behind the game were very unhappy as well. Ubisoft only made matters worse by trying to curb these frustrations with the announcement of a demo that would be exclusive to the Wii U. A more satisfying response came in the form of an exclusive challenge mode that would be available to Wii U owners. The announcement was also coupled with a video response from Rayman creator Michel Ancel who said the delay would help them add more content to the game.

It was recently revealed that the delay of the almost completed Rayman Legends meant that 30 new levels were being added to the game. In addition to the new levels, new bosses are also being added as well. “Trust me, the things we are adding aren’t minor,” said Senior Game Manager Michael Micholic in an interview.

Wii U owners who wanted to play the game at launch back in November are likely still a little hurt over the whole matter but the new content might just be a worthy trade off. As of today, the promised (and free) challenge mode is currently available for download on Nintendo’s next gen console.
