Rayman Legends No Longer a Wii U Exclusive
It almost seemed too good to be true that the Nintendo Wii U was going to see its very own Rayman title. Today, Ubisoft announced that its stylized platforming sequel will release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
“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.”
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier. This is comforting knowing that the same team is behind all versions of the game, limited any gaps that may be presented. However, it will be interesting to see how the team tackles and translates the Wii U specific controls when bringing it to the other two consoles.
With next-gen consoles on the verge, it is also a wonder that the “PlayStation 4” and “Durango” won’t be seeing the Rayman Legends title. The game is set to release on all consoles September 2013.
