Rayman Legends, the latest iteration in the classic platformer by Ubisoft has seen countless delays after it was announced as one of the launch title for the Wii U. Ubisoft eventually announced that the game would no longer be a Nintendo exclusive due to sales concerns, and would not be released until September 2013. This time, the game will be available on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita and Wii U on August 30 in Europe and September 3 in North America.
There has been several controversies surrounding the delay of the game, especially on the Wii U. The game’s creator Michel Ancel reportedly joined co-workers in a protest about the decision to delay the game for the Wii U. They requested that the Wii U version be released in February as was originally planned, seeing as work on it was essentially complete.
But at least all is not lost for gamers waiting to scratch their platforming itch: due to the delay, the production team has apparently managed to put in 30 new levels into the game. Well, at least we know that they’re doing something good for the game in the meantime.
