Digital Foundry Says Wii U Has The Definitive Next Gen Version Of Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends has just been re-released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with uncompressed textures, but Digital Foundry believes that the Wii U version of the game is the definitive one. The publication simply says that the game was built from the ground up on the Wii U taking full advantage of the system’s GamePad. Therefore the Wii U delivers the experience that the developers originally intended.

All of which leads us up to an interesting conclusion. Despite the enormous leap in power the new consoles represent, in our opinion it’s the Wii U version of Rayman Legends that remains the definitive edition of the game, with the title taking advantage of the GamePad’s unique features in ways that genuinely add variety and more fun to the gameplay. Let’s not forget that while this game may have been ported to a vast range of different hardware platforms, it started out life as a Wii U exclusive, built around the unique capabilities of the system. Indeed, it’s the Nintendo console that offers the experience that the developers originally intended for the game, before the last-minute switch to a multi-platform release

      1. I don’t think u even bothered with the video that has no reference to rayman or nothing but I agree anyway.

      2. oh for fucks sake.. are there still people claiming the wii u is more powerful than the PS4 and XBO?.. this is so ridiculous it almost hurts

      3. I know, it’s ridiculous that we’re paying $400+ to play a weaker port.

      4. Articles like this prove just how full of shit you hypocritical Sonytard and Microtard fanboys are.

        *Digital Foundry Thinks Batman Arkham Origins Worse on Wii U*

        Sonytard108: “We have to believe everything Digital Foundry has to say!”

        Microtard109: “Digital Foundry is so right!”

        Sonytard110: “RIP Wii U! Wii U is doomed! Wii U fail!”

        Microtard111: “Hashtag, hashtag, hashtag! Here, have some more hashtags!”

        *Digital Foundry Confirms Wii U Has the Definitive, Next-Gen version of Rayman Legends*

        Sonytard108: “Digital Foundry is full of bullshit!”

        Microtard109: “Well I don’t like the gamepad so it sucks! Wii U clearly only has one controller to choose from!”

        Sonytard110: “Stop trolling us the way we were trolling you!”

        Microtard111: “Who cares what they have to say! Let’s bring up this other game that’s irrelevant to the article!”

      5. Well you might not know, but even though Asians have small penises, they’re considered to have reached lvl 100 in the bed ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      6. That’s a good vid right there. I watched it last night. Shokio always speaks the truth. We Nintendo fans need to come together and demand more games and better business decisions.

      7. You copy the direct video URL while the video is alone.
        (not in a play list, not in a channel,etc)

  1. So the PS4 and Xbox One versions are the inferior ones? Wow… first time that’s happened… well to the PS4 anyway, the Xbox One is used to.

    1. PS4 and XB1 were always inferior. People just never noticed it because they had no games. Now that they’re finally getting a game worth playing, Rayman Legends, it’s too bad that it’s a crappy port.

      1. Okay….. please, tell me how will the Order 1886 run on the Wii U’s hardware then? Oh wait, it can’t ;)

      2. Can’t, or won’t?
        How is PS4 running Bayonetta 2? Oh wait, it can’t.
        That troll retard aside, Wii U is not that weak to compared to PS4 or Xbone.
        Only difference that games would always have, is graphical, and even that would not be as huge difference.
        I don’t think we will see games that could not run on Wii U on PS4 or xbone in near future.
        Maybe after half-way to this gen, we might get games, that might not run on Wii U with as pleasant gaming experience.
        But cost of producing games might become the bottleneck on this generation.

      1. This ^
        I have one, and is planning on buying 2 or 3 more, depending on how many can play Mario Kart 8 local at the same time!

  2. Well it was originally intended for the Wii U…until Ubi decided to push it back for PS3 and Xbax

  3. Not to diminish What Ubisoft did with Rayman Legends, the X Box One or the PS4, but did someone spect a PORT of a PORT will be better than the original product?

  4. wow the trolls wont like this :) but in actuality its not just the game pad that makes it better the graphics just look more vibrant and the frame rate seems so much smoother. must be the power pc processor that’s built for gaming x86 isn’t :) xcrap one and ps4 are essentially the same exact system in a different shell. with them it will come down to whos willing to pay more for 3rd party games to be exclusives.

    1. you do know that neither did IBM ever intend their architectures to be meant exclusively for gaming?

      “powerPC is for gaming and x86 isn’t” that statement is just utter bullshit

  5. HAHAH HO HO HAH HO HO HAHAH!!!!

    ItS amAZInG!!!! THE WII U dID SOMEthiNG RIghT!!!!!! To bAD Its THE woRST SYStem oF THe ceNTuRy!!!!! RaymAN LEGendS>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>DONkey konG TROPical fuCK

    1. when a console fails, like you, since the day you were born, a new one will come… We need some titles for this console. They will come.
      Then nintendo can release a new one. I have a ps3 too. And I think that this consoles war is stupid, always like you, of course xD

      1. YEah i tOTAlly FAil!!!! hahah ho ho HAHAH!!!! THe coNSOle wARS arE REtarded BUT yoU GUys are stiLL MAd that ninTENDO CAnt EVEN coMPETE aGAINST DIRT!!!!!

        – THE REAL ICEAZEAMA

      2. Why are you so mean now? You were such a cool guy and just because people banned you, you went crazy with hatred for the WiiU. Please come back… You were really cool :(

  6. Most of the comments made me laugh, if you love your other consoles that much why do you spend so much time on Nintendo websites? In any case it was built for the Wii U, that should be the better version.

  7. DocTre81 is gonna have a field day trolling the haters on youtube about this. I can’t wait to see Blackb0nd’s response ;-)

  8. Does this mean that the PS4 and XB1 versions will be ported off of the Wii U version, that graphically the game won’t look any better on the PS4 and XB1 than it does on the Wii U and the GamePad gives the Wii U version an edge, or does it mean that the Wii U version will look the best.

    Whatever the case may be it is a positive news story for Nintendo for a change.

    1. Nice try at damage controlling but no where did I read that the PS4 version has sharper textures or is the superior console version graphically. Digital Foundry clearly states that ALL of the next-gen versions of Rayman Legends look IDENTICAL in graphical quality. There’s no way they would say the Wii U version is the defintive version mainly based on it’s gamepad features. Sorry

    2. the graophics between wii u and others are slightly difference HOWEVER IT HAS CONTINOUS 60fps on ALL MAJOR GAMES ( Nintendo 1st part and ecluives and SOME ports) and 1080p. beautiful aint it? yes.

    1. The Order 1886 – native 800p 30fps

      Bayonetta 2 – native 1080p 60fps

      Nah that’s ok I’ll stick with for right now lol

      1. Yeah. The only thing new about this is that they’re acknowledging that the Wii U is next Gen.

    1. In your eyes it has failed. In my eyes it is the greatest console ever.

      My opinion is all that matters.

  9. comon guys
    be nice to each other.
    the console war is good, it always been.
    The best war was mega drive versus snes. everybody should be happy for every good game on every consol.
    i buyed just a 360 for alan wake.
    the game is great. i have a ps3 and tlou is awesome. the ps3 is on of the best consoles. but my heart beats for nintendo. why because i grow up with them. raymen legend was made for the U and its nice to hear, thats it best version. nintend gets 99% crap ports.
    i mean if zombie u would go to ps3/4 xbox, it would look bether, but it not would be bether.

    1. The funny thing is though that with just a little work, even the ports from the other system can be better on Wii U. Call of duty is better on Wii U, aside from slightly better graphics on ps4/xbox. Same with ACIV and Batman arkham city.

      1. And because the wiiu consume less power than Bigbox or Pay$tation and give Full HD games is the proof it’s the true Next Gen. FACT.

  10. So much for delaying Rayman Legends for Wii U as a multiport plan in the first place. Not only Ubisoft did a dick move on Wii U’s launch window/reputation and been proven wrong in many ways by Wii U outselling the others but now the light has surfaced that even the Wii U version is still deemed the definitive over the big bad “powerful” duo PS4 and XBetamax DOne.

    Oh the irony is such a bitch isn’t it Ubifail?

  11. weird no thank you this time lol

    on topic OF COURSE !!!!!!!!! IT HAS YTHE BEUTIFUL VISUALS WITH THE GREATEST GAMEPLAY! same is said for ac 3 + 4 on wii u.

  12. “Rayman Legends has just been re-released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with uncompressed textures”

    uncompressed? you probably meant to say “less compressed”

    putting in textures uncompressed would be a needless waste of space

  13. Good to hear.
    The ps3 version actually outsold the rest recently, but that’s because Mario 3D world came out to overshadow Legends, and PS3 owners had no better platformer choices.

    Wii U got the best version by far.

  14. LMFAO, articles like these prove just how full of shit these hypocritical, short-term memory, Nintard fanboy rejects really are.

      “Smeagol looove you, Digital Foundry!”

    1. Yeah, missing out on miniscule third party support, gimped ports, no cross-platform interactions, censored functions and a toddler-filled catalog of software.

      AHHHHHHHH!!!!

      1. Since when has presenting the truth in a humorous fashion been enough to classify a person as a troll?
