Rayman Legends was previously scheduled to launch today exclusively for Wii U; however, the game’s publisher, Ubisoft, delayed the game’s release by about seven months so that it will arrive simultaneously on the Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While the Wii U version may have been ready to hit store shelves, Ubisoft CEO Ubisoft Yves Guilemot told Kotaku that the development team is still working on the game for Nintendo’s latest console. When the game is finally released in the fall, Guilemot said Ubisoft wants Rayman Legends to be one of the best games on Wii U.
“The Wii U the team is working hard on the Wii U [version] to make sure it continues to improve, so it can become one of the best Wii U games. We hope it can be one of the top games Ubisoft creates.”
“What’s very important to consider is that, when a team has more time, they are able to continue to improve the quality of the game. When we saw we had more time, we saw all of the possibilities. Some of the possibilities are the social features that we are seeing today, but also new bosses, new possibilities that will take the game to a level that people will love.”
