WIIU Rayman Legends No Longer a Wii U Exclusive

I'm sure we all expected this but today, Ubisoft announced that its forthcoming title Rayman Legends, already announced for the Wii U, will also be released on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation3.

The Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 versions of Rayman Legends are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Nintendo Wii U game. Rayman Legends has been praised for its stunning visuals and innovative gameplay by media around the world and labeled as one of the most anticipated platformers of 2013.

"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 while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game."

Rayman Legends retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers from Origins has also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman's graphics to the next level.

All versions will now hit shelves in early September 2013.

  • Ubisoft breaking exclusive, we expected that. Last Rayman game was on all platforms and sold pretty well, there is no reason for them not to earn the extra money. However it sucks for Nintendo since they keep on losing exclusives on 3DS now Wii U. What's worse is that we were supposed to get the game on Feb 26 on Wii U, however now the Wii U owners have to wait for 7 months just so that other platforms will be ready.

  • Exclusives are nowadays more like "the first 60 days, the game won't be out on another platform", rather than the original "only on ..."

  • For third party games on Nintendo platform, yes in most cases. However for games that are exclusive on PS3 they don't seem to come to other platforms often. XBox360's JRPG Revival titles got ported to PC and PS3 a year after and a lot of 3DS titles broke exclusive for Vita, however these publishers doesn't seem to return the favor.
