Rayman Legends delayed, 360 and PS3 versions announced

Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends was originally set to come out later this month for the Wii U, but now that release date has been pushed back to accommodate two more console versions of the upcoming platformer.

According to a Ubisoft press release, Rayman Legends has been delayed until September of this year. On the plus side, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Wii U release.

Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft, explained the decision to bring Rayman Legends to more platforms.

“We heard from many Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system,” he said. ”We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”

This is obviously a blow to Nintendo since it means the loss of a Wii U exclusive, but at least more Rayman fans will be able to experience the follow-up to 2011’s fantastic Rayman Origins.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
