A major part of Ubisoft’s presence at E3 this year was Rayman Legends, the charmingly beautiful successor to the equally charmingly beautiful Rayman Origins, which is currently available on every single console known to man. Gameplay for Legends was shown off during Ubisoft’s press conference, and the game was on the show floor for gamers to check out. I didn’t actually get the chance to see Legends for myself, but all I heard from people who did was nothing but praise.
During the presser and on the show floor, the only version of the game we saw was for the Wii U. This has led many gamers to believe that the upcoming platformer may be exclusive to Nintendo’s new hardware. Speaking to Joystiq, Legends Senior Game Manager Michael Micholic explained that that’s not necessarily the case.
While Micholic didn’t go too deep into it, he did clarify that Ubisoft is showing off the cool Wii U features for Legends. Given the company’s support for the console, that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, especially considering the cool functionality that the Wii U version will sport come launch.
I don’t think there should ever be any doubt that Legends will be a multiplatform game. I mean, just look at Origins. If this new game is as awesome as its predecessor, I doubt Ubisoft will want to keep it restricted to a single device.
