Rayman Legends may not be due until March 1st in the UK, but Ubisoft have blessed Wii U owners with a downloadable demo of the game on the eShop, and announced that Nintendo will be publishing the game in Japan.
“We are delighted to have our promising Rayman Legends published by Nintendo in Japan”, says Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA vice-president sales and marketing at Ubisoft” Rayman’s innovative take on the platforming genre has already seduced millions of gamers across the globe with last year’s Rayman Origins. We are very glad that its successor will benefit from Nintendo’s unrivaled experience of the Japanese market.”
Rayman Legends takes full advantage of the innovative Wii U GamePad controller to explore fresh multiplayer gameplay experiences and expand beyond the traditional platformer genre. Players can use the Wii U GamePad to discover new ways to navigate through the game with touch–based gameplay to take out enemies or clear paths and gyroscope technology to manipulate and rotate platforms. The GamePad also allows you to continue the adventure of Rayman and his friends on the controller screen even while the television is off.
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 have 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 previous graphics to the next level.
