Ubisoft has announced that Rayman Legends will be going multiplatform, as the colourful platformer will be making its way to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
“We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system”, says Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer.” We decided to give the fans what they wanted.”
The game, which was initially supposed to be a Wii U exclusive, will arrive on that platform along with Xbox 360 and PS3 in early September 2013.
The new September release period means that the initial 28 February Wii U release date is being delayed to coincide with the Xbox and PS3 releases.
On Wii U, the game will utilise the new Pro Controller and Wii U’s new touch-screen GamePad, as players can manipulate platforms and the environment using touch, along with a special character created purely to use the functionality of the Wii U GamePad.
