When Nintendo announced the titles coming for their Wii U console, many were of the obvious variety, as they were either first-party titles or typical multi-platform fair. They did, however, manage to bag a couple of exclusives that left some gamers fretting as they weren't necessarily on the Wii U bandwagon. Namely, Bayonetta 2 and Rayman Legends were announced to be released solely on Nintendo's offering.
As of right now, Bayonetta 2 is retaining its exclusivity, but Ubisoft revealed today that Rayman Legends, the follow up to the well-recieved Rayman Origins, will be headed to other consoles, including the Xbox 360. This should excite fans of Origins, as the team behind that game has returned and is utilizing an advanced version of Origins' UbiArt engine that includes "multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman’s graphics to the next level."
Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer for Ubisoft, had the following to say about the upcoming title:
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.Rayman Legends was initially due to hit the Wii U later this month, but that version has now been delayed and the title is currently due for release on all platforms in September 2013.
