Decision motivated by desire to cater to more Rayman fans.
Whether you believed Ubisoft wanting to polish the formerly Wii U exclusive Rayman: Legends or not, it seems we’ve finally discovered the source of the delay: The publisher has announced that it will be arriving on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as Wii U. All versions are set to be released this September.
EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Geoffroy Sardin stated that, “We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
Development of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will also be handled by Ubisoft Montpellier. As of now, console-exclusive features are unknown but it would be interesting to see how the Wii U GamePad aspect is translated onto the PS3 and Xbox 360.
