Ubisoft have today dropped a bomb (quite literally), as not only did they confirm that Rayman Legends for the Wii U is delayed until September, but they also confirmed that the game, with some minor alterations, will also be released onto the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 later this year.
Rayman Legends was originally designed as a Wii U Exclusive, however since then Ubisoft have delayed the game twice and more recently announced that it will be released onto the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in addition to the Wii U, as Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer for Ubisoft explains:
“We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system, We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
All Three versions of Rayman Legends are being developed by the same company, Ubisoft Montpellier, additionally all three games will be released at the same time, which is currently slated for an earlier September 2013 release window.
Rayman Legends isn’t the only game to loose its ‘Exclusivity’ to the Wii U, as yesterday Tecmo Koei Europe confirmed that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will also be released onto the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, a game which was originally another Wii U Exclusive.
